Have you considered to switch to iPad Pro for UX and Product Design work? Maybe user research? In this video, I’ll give you my first-hand experience by trying out UX work only using iPad for a few days. As a Mac and iPad user I’ll share the unbiased take covering: the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to picking iPad pros as a PRO device.

The apps I’ve listed and like to use when it comes to…
User research:

  • Google apps suite (docs, excel, keep)
  • Ulysses (UX copy, research note management)
  • iOS notes app (notes)

General UX tasks and product design:

  • Miro (formerly and sadly renamed Realtimeboard) (experience mapping, wireframes, UI etc.)
  • Adobe Comp (wireframes and UI)
  • Unsplash (stock photos)
  • Procreate (hand drawn illustrations)
  • Assembyl (vector illustrations)
  • Canva (ready made graphics templates)

Other worth checking out:

  • Grammarly (UX copy)
  • Paper (notes and illustrations)
  • Yoink (multitasking drawer to copy/paste elements from-to-anywhere)

and many more.
