📱iPadOnly,☑️Productivity

This post will be really geeky, but you’ll love it - an updated list of my productivity iPad Apps! Here’s the backstory: a few years back I co-wrote a book iPadOnly - How to use only your iPad to work, play and everything in between where I recommended a set of apps that help me get everything done on the iPad. In the meantime I got my iPad Pro and I kept updating this blog with my impressions of iPad Pros and iPadOnly work and I’ve also posted a list of apps I use on my iPhone but as lots of people keep asking me about this, here’s a list of the iPad apps I use now to get things done and make it my main productivity workhorse.

Bonus: experiment with app layout

Before we move on to the list of apps, as you can see on the screenshot of my iPad above, I’ve decided to experiment a little with my app layout recently. I just hated it that I had apps on different screens and was very often tempted to get distracted when I wanted to write something but opened the Twitter app as it was just “on the way” to my writing app… so I started using folders as my “focused environments” and group my apps together. These groups give me a few benefits, like:

OK, here’s the list of all of my apps from these groups:

Apps without a folder

Apps I need to be able to access quickly at any time

Which apps do you use? What am I missing?

Over the years I’ve been testing and using many different apps and once I stopped using something I simply removed it. That’s why this is now a complete list of the apps I use and recommend. This is how I get things done on my iPad. These apps let me be “iPad Only” and work from anywhere using my iPad Pro.

Question: Your recommendations?
