I found this very interesting article on the iPad as a board game device. It sounds really cool: http://recombu.com/news/ipad-board-g...rm_M11370.html

The iPad has a lot of potential, especially for deployment in certain areas if people develop apps for it properly.

I must note the Omni Group has declared their intention to develop for the iPad, even at the expense of slower development times for their desktop applications... That would make the iPad a serious corporate contender if OmniGraffle, OmniPlan and other apps are available at the typically low App Store prices.

Those who diss the iPad too early obviously don't see the potential and are just fixated on it being an overglorified eBook reader. Even Amazon.com is threatened enough to pull a publisher's books off their print AND digital stores for asking for better pricing terms.

However, all that said, I probably still won't buy one unless I have a windfall...

Let's go for some creative, constructive thoughts here.

I was reading this article about the method of file access on the iPhone/iPad OS.

Then I thought about what I would want to do with an iPad, if I had one. Photo editing is one of the main uses that comes to mind (as some have mentioned earlier). I would also like to do some casual web coding on-the-go. Have a library of code reference iBooks, a nice little text editor, and a web browser. No server-side stuff, just simple frontend web scripting and layout. Obviously by now some hardware and software hurdles are already accumulating, but let's focus on the article at hand.

How would you enable multiple apps to access the same files? Like separate photo-editing and viewing software? How will third-party developers collaborate with Apple (and among themselves) on this? Sharing of data among applications?

Shared cloud databases could be one way.
Simply sharing local files between apps is another, though it could get messy as all documents of one app is stored in the app's folder, and deleted when the app is removed. A common folder for a category of apps?

Any ideas?

(I don't use the iPhone so any clarifications on the way the file system works would be good, too.)
