Just the standard apps: Videos & Photos. For the photos, you have to go through iTunes as everything else.

When I'm around wifi, I'll pull up my website for them to watch the videos on. Vimeo plays great with their html5 videos.

I use regular Video as well, but like Adam, I use vimeo most of the time anyhow. I have the 3G version and it works great for that.

What encoding settings are best for iPad/iPhone ? I've got a client who wants to have an iPad copy but don't have an iPad (yet) to test playback on....

John,

I just copy the video over to itunes, and then use itunes to convert it for apple tv. I'm more than happy with the quality, but I'm sure there is a better and more technical way using compressor or media encoder.

A bit off-topic - but I just finished a shoot where we used an i-Pad as a teleprompter, using the ProPrompter app. It was absolutely perfect, even without hardware - we just had someone hold the i-Pad right under the lens and we were far enough from them that it looked seamless, just like they were looking right at us.

You can also get hardware to support it, plus the beam-splitting glass, etc. just like a regular teleprompter - but we just used the i-Pad by itself and it worked very well. Just a note to anyone considering an i-Pad - this is one of the better reasons to get one!!

Hi Bill - yeah - I just bought this on special for US$199

LCD4Video | iPad Teleprompter Kit - LCD4Video

I don't even have a iPad yet - waiting a couple of months more for the v2 which is in the works - hopefully it fits the prompter!

I use the iPad at wedding shows. I've got a half dozen or so highlight clips loaded and when my booth is busy and I think someone might walk away before getting the 'pitch' I hand them the ipad and let them look at the videos on the ipad instead of my wide screen monitor. I also do the same thing on my iphone. They stay put and its amazing how often it turns into a sale.

I also have the vWave-Lite ipad app that lets me control Apple Color with a 3 trackball system from my ipad (a virtual duplicate to the Tangent Wave controller). Very cool!
