I JUST came across this app, though I don't have an iPad, I think it might be worth downloading for future use. For those of you whom do have an iPad, and like to doodle as well as create presentations or draw etc.. Looks worth checking out. This works in conjunction with Wacom's new $30 Bamboo Stylus for the iPad.

You can check out a review on Terry White's blog (which is pretty cool in general) here: Wacom Outs A New iPad Stylus and Sketching App

Go get it while it's free! (the app that is, not the Stylus)

Here's a stupid question. Why is there such separation between the "App Store" and the "iTunes Store" ? I thought that the App store was supposed to pretty much do away with buying apps from within iTunes? I'm looking for Bamboo Paper in the App Store with no results. Says I have to look in the iTunes store.

That's quite annoying and IMO unnecessary. Kind of like the all over the place experience one might attribute to a different kind of mobile OS.. ech hem... Just sayin'.

It's 'cause the App Store in OSX is technically the Mac App Store, the "App Store" for iOS devices is handled through either iTunes OR the App Store on the device (where it then only shows iOS apps) - I'm sure it's related to how the devices are synced and maintained by iTunes.

I think it'd be a pitb having the iOS apps and OS X apps in the same store.

It'd be an impetus for the growth of the forum though, as there'd be thousands of dummies going "But, I thought it was a Mac app. I don't even have an iPad/iPhone/iPod. How do I get my money back?".

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

ROFL. And that's the number one reason why Apple keeps them separate.

I just wouldn't want to have to scroll through all those thousands of junk IOS apps. Right now the Mac App store is still browsable - the IOS app store is not - at least not for me.

Um, the UI could very easily be modified so that both stores were consolidated. Just have another fairly large icon and text separating the two! Sorry but, that would be the most logical and easy thing to do IMO. I don't think that it's a very good idea to keep the app stores totally separated.

I mean, on one hand you've got iTunes for iPhone and iPod apps, right? Last time I looked at iTunes, this was the case. (it's been a long time though) Those are still considered iOS apps. So why separate them at all ? Makes very little sense to me. iOS is iOS IMO. And you don't have to search through pages of junk, because there are categories. Moreover, the search box makes it even easier.

I'm not talking about searching - I'm talking about just casually browsing. Once upon a time - when the iPad was still new to me - I used to keep up with what the new apps were and enjoyed seeing all the items that were being created. I'd 'browse' casually through the IOS store on the iPad and see if anything looked interesting. Nowadays - there are just too many apps - so I don't do that anymore. I do still do that on the Mac. Yes there are categories - but with something on the order of 400,000 IOS apps - and who knows what percentage are actually of decent quality - I'm just saying I wouldn't want that muddying my view on the Mac app store.

Yes - of course the UI could be modified so the two were distinct areas - that would be fine by me - and who knows maybe they'll head that direction anyway. iTunes has been the mechanism for iOS devices since day one - both for sync as well as downloads, but it wouldn't surprise me to see an IOS app store materialize eventually on iOS devices - especially since all the syncing will be done via the cloud soon.

Either way - I definitely prefer them to be separate - meaning - don't display IOS apps in my App store unless I click on something to make that happen.
