All the apps we miss on the iPad

We won’t deny it, iPadOS 16 brought with it some native applications that everyone has been asking for on iPad, such as: B. the weather or fitness application. But having seen what has been seen, there is still work to be done in this regard. There are applications that are still exclusive to the iPhoneand sometimes it’s not something that can be fully justified.

I’m not just talking about Apple and its upcoming duties: there are also some companies that don’t want to hear about the creation of their official applications for the iPad. Let’s take it easy.

Note these applications, iPadOS 17

  • Whatsapp It is one of the most screaming applications. While the rest of the messaging services have official clients for the iPad, with WhatsApp we still have to rely on a website. For those who are fed up, they can always switch to iMessage or Telegram.
  • instagram is another hugely popular third-party app that doesn’t have an iPad interface. It’s not officially made because of the obviously small number of users who would install it, but with much smaller apps doing the job it sounds like a very cheap excuse.
  • That calculator Apple is official in macOS, iOS and even in watchOS. But not on iPadOS. There are many alternative calculators out there, but sure: they come with built-in ads, purchases, and subscriptions… and pray to heaven you have to go through this to get a basic calculator interface. A completely free alternative is OneCalc, although the tab admits it uses some usage data to track you.
  • Health It could also be present on the iPad right now that we are measuring our physical activity with the Apple Watch. And even if we measured it with the iPhone, it wouldn’t hurt to be able to see all of our health data aggregated on the larger screen of an iPad.
  • We can use the same argument with the application watches. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to manage all of our watch settings from the iPad? The Apple Watch is paired with the iPhone, but thanks to our Apple ID, iCloud could take care of mapping everything on the tablet.
  • And again the same argument: briefcase could show us our tickets and official certificates (like the vaccination certificate) on a larger screen. I won’t say the information on our cards because paying with the iPad is inconvenient, but we could have information on our passports and loyalty cards.

Stage Manager brings the iPad (almost) to Mac level in something fundamental: window management

  • enough of compass, an application that may need additional sensors on the iPad, but could be useful for those working in open fields and without much coverage. We always have that for the iPhone, but it’s so easy to implement that I don’t see why they couldn’t do it in the future.
