How to... read comics on the iPad
E-book reader, portable telly, digital newspaper, big-screen games console, movie player - the iPad all of these incredibly well. It's also a darn fine comic viewer, its richly coloured, bright 1024 x 768 screen ideal for presenting sequential art.
Love comics? Here's Reg Hardware's quick guide to enjoying them on your iPad.
Marvel's app contains recent material and some historic gems
The iTunes App store is already loaded with a number of programs from major comic publishers, including Marvel, IDW and Archie. Typically free of charge, the apps present their own iTunes-style comic shop, allowing you to browse, preview, buy and read the companies' offerings.
Comixology's Comics: buy from different publishers, big and small
DC is a notable absence, and while Dark Horse is represented on the App Store, it's currently only offering iPhone-formatted apps, each one presenting a specific title. In fact, there's a fair few of these ebook-as-app downloads available on the Store, many of them specifically for the iPad.
Didn't anyone read the question?
First off, iWork does not come with the iPad. They're seperate apps you need to pay for and download from the App site. iWork doesn't come with Macs, either.
But even if it did, that wouldn't help the OP, because his actual question was "Can I use the iPad with a stylus* to take shorthand notes?" which is quite different.
Apart from the fact the OP made a typo (* he wrote Styles instad of stylus), no-one actually bothered to address his question. It's possible that iJot might be of some use, but at the moment that seems to be the only stenography-capable app available. If that's the main sue the OP would put the iPad to, then he's better off going elsewhere, and checking back in a year to see if anyone has made an app he'd find useful.
...that the App Store is ready to censor cartoonists on a whim.
I've noticed that all the titles shown are apparently "acceptable" -- Marvel, DC, and the like. Am I correct assuming that I won't be able to get hold of Möbius, Cheech Wizard, Den, or the Furry Freak Brothers through the App Store?
Fsck you, Steve. I mean, I loves me some MacOS, and I've been using it for over twenty years, but, fsck you, Steve.
Super, bu can I use it at School
So nice to that the Max-ipad can do ~so~ much.
But can I use Word (or at least some other Word Processor then) with a Styles to take shorthand notes during Lecture time?
This is about the only thing that would actually concern my interests, for the rest of it I can use my Year old Laptop.
Which is what I actually plan to do any way....
I've never been a fan of comics really. So this doesn't apply to me. Looks similar to the app on the Sony PSP for reading comics but with a decent sized screen.
... it's almost as good as the paper version!
