This article comes from Derrick Story on theDigitalStory.com, and talks about an interesting iOS app and accompanying Mac “server” app that lets you access our iPad library anywhere.

Pretty clever stuff… read all about here: Aperture on an iPad - Anywhere

I read the headline and thought, this is cool… Wait! I could just use plex for that… ;-)
Plex and the whole community are amazing, even if I usually don’t use it to access my Aperture library.

ibooks store dont seem to have the book of Derrick Story ….any hints ?

Next we need an iPad Aperture App … at least for rudimentary processing in the field … then merge with desktop library …

Bummer !
Not available in non-US itunes shop

@Kenny: i found Plex in the Dutch Apps store for €4,49. But indeed the plex mediaserver is not in the imac apps store. According to macworld.nl you have to downlaod it from www.plexapp.com/

From the article describing Plex: “It taps the preview files in your Aperture library…”. Is it, therefore, safe to assume that, if one follows Joseph’s advice re disabling previews to save disk space, then Plex won’t work?

I know this thread is quite old but I just released PhotoScope to the App Store which lets you view Aperture and iPhoto libraries from your iPad (or iPhone) over the WiFi network. It gives you an easy way to browse your whole library and (with Aperture) to rate and reject photos. It also shows you all the photo meta data.

Has anyone tried PhotoScope?  I guess I should just go ahead and try it, it’s only $5.  I’d love to be able to rate apps using my iPad.

I haven’t yet but it’s on my list of apps to write about here!
