In this movie, I want to share things that you really need to know about files on the iPad. Always, always test the share button for each app that you want to use, check the file formats that it supports. Some of the best apps for getting things in and out of an iPad are Evernote, Dropbox, and Photo Gallery. So, when I'm trying out an app, I always tap that share button, and see, do Evernote and Dropbox or Photo Gallery appear in that pop up window. If you use a lot of PDFs, some of the best apps for those are iBooks. Good reader with its annotation features and Evernote. Many people like to use personal drawing and journal notebooks. For instance, Penultimate just partnered with Evernote, and now it's added powerful, powerful features for sharing and annotation. One app that I use, Inkpad is a great vector drawing tool. It has some of the capabilities of Adobe Illustrator.
With this app you need to export it as some of the common file formats, SVG, PNG, or JPEG. It has it's own native file format. But if you send that to other people they won't be able to open that file format. Many apps do not have a save button as we know it. You won't even see it in the navigation bars. These type apps just keep track of your file. That's a very common feature in apps on the iPad.
They just save as you work along in the background. So to manage your work and creations, and to make sure that you don't lose the work that you're doing, back up your files to one of these three applications. Email, Evernote, or Dropbox, or a similar service like Box or SkyDrive. Email, for personal reasons. Evernote because you want to aggregate a collection of documents or a Dropbox because you're sharing large, large files in your storage system in the Cloud. With an understanding of these features and how an iPad works, your students will feel empowered, eager and ready to try all kinds of things. Things that you haven't even thought of.
