RE posting here because I think I'll get a better response....

So i decided to get an ipad 4th Gen , Looking for some help with apps please

1) Anything to set the screen to BLACK so i can test for backlight bleed?

2) Is there a decent app that will let me write over the top of photos with the pencil? Google photos does this on Android, but the iPad OS version doesn't. Also, iPad OS Markup doesn't work with Google Photos (Not really surprised)

3) Any MUST-HAVE apps that you'd recommend? It's going to take me a while to get used to apple's way of doing things (Especially as i don't intend on switching phone to apple too)

Thanks to those that offered buying advice!

You can write on photos with the pencil in the stock Photos app. I don’t use Google photos so I don’t know anything about that.

Thanks. Just want to figure out a way of getting photos from Google photos across to the photos app then if anyone knows a way?

In the Google Photos app one can long press a photo in the thumbnail view to invoke selection of multiple photos, they can then select multiple photos and click the share button in the app to "Save to Device" which will download and add the photos to the Camera Roll on the device.

Did you mean Air 4 or iPad Gen 4? Just wondering because I believe a Gen 4 regular iPad does not support Apple Pencil.

Apple Pencil compatibility - Apple Support
