If you are among the new breed of iPad toting photographers these days, you’ve probably quickly realized that yes while you can add photos on your iPad, the standard Gallery software that comes pre-installed leaves little to be desired.
This is where Media Pad Pro by MediMobile comes to the rescue http://www.medlmobile.com/index.php?page=viewapp&appId=68
Media Pad Pro is a complete solution for creative types to organize and display galleries of Images, Videos, Music and Graphics, it’s the new world equivalent of carrying around one of those old giant portfolios.
There are two distinct parts to Media Pad Pro the Managers Assistant for editing images and customizing the interface and the frontend for viewing images, audio, videos etc…
When you first launch Media Pad Pro you are greeted with a splash screen, this can be completely customized from within the Managers Assistant, this is accessed via the button in the bottom left corner of the screen.
Once in the Managers Assistant, you can customize just about every aspect of how clients or friends will view Media Pad Pro on the front end.
Adding assets such as images and video files is a little tricky out of the gate, but once you know how to do it, it’s a piece of cake. My best recommendation is to watch the 11 minute video below which does a great job of covering the basics of using Media Pad Pro.
From the clients perspective using Media Pad Pro is about as easy as it comes, select a gallery and then view images in slideshow mode or in the typical iPad fashion by flicking through them one at a time.
While some iPad owners might shutter (no pun intended) at the price of $14.99 for an iPad app, Media Pad Pro is worth every penny. If you are a photographer wishing to give your clients the best image viewing experience on an iPad then Media Pad Pro is a clear winner. While there are several apps that attempt to do what Media Pad Pro does, nothing is as complete of a solution as Media Pad Pro and for that I give it two thumbs up.
I’ve been told by the developers of Media Pad Pro, there is an updated version coming out very soon.
Well there you go, two great photography products to add to your wishlist. Here’s wishing you get everything that is on your holiday wish list and then some.
