The Best Apps For Drag And Drop On The iPad With iOS 11

In iOS 11, Apple went about taking the iPad up a notch. One big new feature is drag and drop, allowing you to grab a file from one app and bring it to another. You can move text, photos, links, and more just by dragging and dropping between apps. The apps need to be updated to support drag and drop, and here are some of the best apps that have been updated.

The Best Apps For Drag And Drop

Drag and Drop is possible in a wide variety of apps, but here are some of the best use cases and implementations.

Dropped: Drag & Drop Clipboard

The perfect clipboard for your iPad

Dropped: Drag & Drop Clipboard

Easy to use, but not every file type is supported

For users who want a powerful drag and drop clipboard for their text and files

Dropped is a very easy-to-use drag and drop clipboard by the fine folks at <a href="http://www.2peaches.de">2peaches</a>. Text is a snap; just highlight what you want to copy, and then open Dropped in Slide Over. Drag your highlighted text, and it's ready to paste somewhere else. You can also use Dropped to help move images from one place to another, which is handy for copying those pictures into another app without using Files as a middle man. Dropped aims to be "your drag and drop clipboard for everything," and it does a pretty decent job. It supports plain text, PDFs, Pages and Numbers documents, images, videos, and more. Unfortunately and surprisingly, Dropped doesn't currently work with some pretty common file types in the Apple ecosystem. Word documents aren't currently supported within the app. You also can't drag and drop documents from the Files app if they're still only stored in iCloud Drive. The nice thing is that if you come across an unsupported file type, it's easy to let the developers know you want it to work. Just tap "Yes" to the dialog that comes up, and Dropped fills in an email for you to send.

Why we love it

Even with its current limitations, Dropped is very powerful. It supports a large number of file types, plain text, and even web page addresses. It's all nicely categorized within the app, so you can find what you're looking for quite easily. You can also quickly delete the Drops you aren't going to use anymore. Just tap on the ones you want to get rid of, then tap the trash can icon. When you drag a file into Dropped, the state of that file is saved and then refreshed when you make changes to it. So, if you save an image into Dropped and then edit that image, the next time you choose to drag it into a different app, your changes will appear. That's definitely a handy feature for ongoing collaboration.

1Password 7 • Password Manager

This app is pretty much all you will ever need

1Password 7 • Password Manager

Use your Master Password

For anyone who wants a complete and comprehensive feature-packed solution for password management.

Users can now used the popular Markdown language to create rich text in secure notes. That means you can add elements including headers, bold and italic text, lists, tappable links, and more to a secure note. For anyone who can’t get enough of iMessage sticker packs, the update also brings a number of fun 1Password-inspired options to use when communicating with friends and family. There are also a number of bug fixes and improvements. 1Password is designed for the iPhone and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. New users can receive a free, 30-day trial. After that, a monthly subscription is required. It costs $2.99 per month for a single user or $6.99 for up to a family of five. The companion Mac app is also available​ to download for free. If you're looking to improve your digital security, 1Password is a great place to start. It offers a host great features and is easy to learn and integrate into your daily routine.

Why we love it

It is not only a completely powerful and comprehensive app that is jam packed with features, but it looks slick and is fast too. 1Password has been around for years and continues to raise the bar when it comes to password management apps.

PCalc

A super scientific calculator with all the things

PCalc

Calculator in your Notification Center

For anyone who wants a powerful and functional calculator.

PCalc is a highly customizable and functional calculator. It packs in a ton of settings and themes so that you can customize the appearance and change the available functions from the get-go, so you can have basic calculations or scientific or graphing, depending on what you use it for. It's easy to use once you find the right settings, and the widget lets you calculate without having to unlock the phone.

Why we love it

It looks great and is powerful. It's more calculator than one will ever need and costs less than the advanced graphing calculators you can buy in a store.

Documents: File Manager & Docs

Readdle is serious with productivity, so Documents 5 is a great choice

Documents: File Manager & Docs

For anyone who trusts the Readdle brand and wants a powerful PDF viewer and file manager.

With Readdle's Documents 5, users can access their files from a variety of sources of their choosing. Once you have access to your files, just pick what you want to view or listen to, and the app lets you without breaking a sweat. When it comes to PDFs, users can mark up the PDF if need be, annotate, sign, and fill out fields on the document. There are several different choices for ink color and pen size, and it's easy to save and upload your document back into the cloud with all changes intact. A unique feature for ReaddleDocs is online storage through its own Readdle Storage. You are eligible for a free account with 512MB of storage for sharing files. PDF viewing is straightforward but lacks support for viewing multiple pages in landscape orientation.

Why we love it

Readdle is a trusted name around here, and Documents 5 is a great alternative for PDF and file management. The interface is friendly to use as well.

Procreate

Procreate is a must-have

Procreate

Professional results

For any professional artist.

This is a deceptively simple app with a devoted following. The focus is on brushes (there are eight) rather than tons of different art tools. The interface is uncluttered and the app doesn't have the "bloat" associated with some of the more feature-heavy apps. Even with just a few tools in its repertoire, this app is a fantastic means for artists to create amazing works of art. It's also an easy-to-use app for doodlers.

Why we love it

Procreate is simple enough for anyone to use, but the best results will be made by those who know what they're doing. The app has plenty of powerful tools to help you create your next masterpiece.

OmniGraffle 3

Airmail - Your Mail With You

A great email app that's even better on an iOS 11-based iPad

Airmail - Your Mail With You

Quick Look lets you preview attachments

For those who want a powerful and comprehensive email app.

Airmail is a powerful and comprehensive email app that originated on the Mac and has made its way to iOS. The iOS version contains all of the powerful features of the Mac app in a much more portable package. Users can have multiple email accounts from a variety of email services, a unified inbox with color-coded mailboxes for each account, complete support for folders and labels, thread viewing, PDF creation, HTML signatures, aliases, email tracking and much more. On top of that, if you use Airmail on your Mac, then you can go for the iCloud syncing that will sync all of your accounts and preferences without any effort from you. With iOS 11 on your iPad, Airmail fully supports Drag and Drop, so you can easily get new attachments into your emails.

Why we love it

Airmail has a nice interface that is easy to use and it has a ton of powerful features that make it easy to manage your email inboxes. Plus the iCloud sync means you can have all of your accounts and preferences synced from the Mac version without any extra effort. When you receive an email attachment, Airmail quickly shows you a preview so you don't have to open it up in another app right away. When you're ready to open the attachment for editing or commenting, just tap the Share button in the top right corner. The app also supports email tracking, so you'll know right away when your recipient opens your message. The only drawback is I can't find a way to have Airmail track emails by default.

Day One Journal: Private Diary

One of the most robust journaling experiences out there

Day One Journal: Private Diary

Easy entry creation

For those who want to capture their lives as they live them

Day One Journal is designed for the iPhone and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for for free. The Premium version is available with an in-app purchase of $2.99 per month or $24.99 yearly.

WHAT EDUCATORS ARE SAYING
“Showbie is my number one can't live without app! It makes the iPad workflow process a breeze! I especially love how it works seamlessly with so many other apps.”
— Kristen Paino, Lead Technology Integrator at Avenues: The World School

“I don't need to convince my colleagues that they need to use this app — it sells itself. I like that it gives me the flexibility in how I choose to grade my student's work, especially with the voice notes feature. There is no single third party app that I would rather champion.”
— Suzanne Lustenhouwer, Teacher and iPad Coordinator, Apple Distinguished Educator

“I love that Showbie is so versatile that the youngest of students can use it independently, yet it is appropriate for older grades as well. The ease of use makes it a great workflow solution for classes with iPads.”
— Kristi Meeuwse, Kindergarten Teacher, Apple Distinguished Educator

The Omni Group

OmniPlan: Project planning made painless. Free 2-week trial.

OmniPlan is designed to help you visualize, maintain, and simplify your projects. Break down tasks, optimize the required resources, and monitor your entire plan—all at a glance. Visualize your project’s tasks in a Gantt chart or Network diagram. Automatically sync projects across multiple personal devices or collaborate with your colleagues and share every detail. Run Monte Carlo simulations to forecast milestone completion dates with varying levels of confidence. OmniPlan helps you manage projects that are as simple or complex as you need them to be—without the complexity.

FREE TRIAL

With the free two week trial, you can try all of the features of Standard and Pro without buying anything. After the trial, you can continue to use OmniPlan to view documents for free.

STANDARD FEATURES (AVAILABLE VIA IN-APP PURCHASE)

• Gantt Chart — Add groups, tasks, and milestones to your project and watch OmniPlan transform the timeline of your project into a beautiful Gantt chart. The project Gantt chart graphically shows task durations, start and stop times, dependencies, resources, or resource usage by task, all on a timeline. You can visually edit tasks and create dependencies by connecting them in the Gantt view.
• Network Diagram View — An elegant and easy way to rapidly prototype and visualize your project’s flow as a network diagram of nodes connected by dependencies.
• Resource Leveling — Identify bottlenecks in your project and distribute workloads fairly and efficiently with OmniPlan’s resource management.
• Leveling Priority — Define leveling priority for tasks in your project.
• Violation Resolution — If your schedule has a logical impossibility, OmniPlan will find it and suggest the best course of action to restore order.
• Catch-Up and Reschedule — If everything is going as planned, bring the completion percentage of every task (or just the selected tasks) in your project up to today’s date. If you have tasks which were planned to be complete by now, but aren’t, quickly reschedule them.
• Meeting Task Type — Specify if multiple resources need to work on a task independently or simultaneously.
• Unlinked Duration and Effort — Set different values for a task’s effort and duration, then let OmniPlan crunch the numbers for your resource assignment percentage.
• Multiple Baselines — Take snapshots of your schedule, then compare them as your project progresses to make sure you're still on track.
• Critical Path — Flip a switch to highlight tasks that have the biggest impact on your deadline.
• Display Off-Hours — Display all off-hours, holidays, and weekends in the Gantt chart.
• Change Tracking — Keep tabs on and review the changes you've made in your project so far.

PRO FEATURES (AVAILABLE VIA IN-APP PURCHASE):

• Microsoft Project Import/Export — Open Microsoft Project® 2016 or earlier documents directly in OmniPlan and export to Project 2013.
• Monte Carlo Simulation — Run multiple simulations in seconds to forecast milestone completion dates with varying levels of confidence.
• Publish & Subscribe: Sync your entire project to the Omni Sync Server or to your own WebDAV server. Make changes to your project and sync to see those from your collaborators.
• Change Tracking: Keep tabs on and review the changes you've made in your project so far. If you're syncing, use change tracking to review, browse, and then accept or reject changes task by task or en masse from your collaborators.

SUPPORT: If you have any feedback or questions, we'd love to hear from you! The Omni Group offers free tech support: you can reach us by email at omniplan@omnigroup.com, by phone at 1-800-315-6664 or +1-206-523-4152, or on twitter at @OmniPlan.
