Journalists who own an iPad have such a tool that will allow them to produce content, write texts and use it as their primary weapon while performing their activities, all without the need for a computer, practice, creativity And the right accessories will be ready to work as a journalist with only your iPad.

My suggestion for a journalist who, in addition to organizing with Things (or Reminders), not to forget any appointments or pending text, may use the tablet to send colleagues or mail (Mail), and also of course , use iPad as a text production tool.

Pages a fabulous app It has very advanced features, the Word replacement on the iPad and no matter how hard you try there is no other more practical than it. This application has many templates for you to adapt your wording and assemble a note, as well as starting a text from scratch.

Remember that if you make a video on iPad you can edit it with iMovie and then upload it to YouTube directly from the viewer (by tapping the share box). I have also set aside a photo editor so that you don't get ugly with the iPad camera which is a little simple for certain moments, it's important to record what happened and do the best you can.

Tip: Together from Pages very interesting For a journalist to buy the external keyboard to give you more freedom when writing your texts, without it you can hardly enjoy your iPad 100%, instead of helping it to be less productive, no one can write long on a keyboard virtual.
