I’ve had my iPad for about two months. Here are the apps that I love and use most frequently:
Easily browse my DropBox, and save documents created on iPad to my DropBox account. Notability (note taking app) syncs directly to DropBox.
The best text/tablet app that I have encountered. I’ve downloaded about a dozen free and paid apps, and this is the easiest to organize, and Integrate audio/text/pen. There is a moveable palm pad to make writing with pen or finger easier. Can export individual pages or whole notebooks to Google Docs as a PDF.
Great text note taking app. Seems minor, but it has a built-in bullet/number list and tab function in the toolbar to make outlining easy. Can embed images and tablet notes, and record audio.
Takes less than 15 seconds to open a picture, rotate, crop, and save (which is all I use it for). Lots of other features, I’m sure.
Doodle app of choice. Smoothing makes drawings look 100x better than on paper.
While I like many things about the official Twitter App, Twitterific is my preferred choice. Can save searches for keeping up with #scichat. Only downside is lack of Push notifications, so I keep Twitter around for that.
The app Facebook should have made.
Easy interface, publish to every type of blog imaginable. Would like an editable Rich Text option, but has shortcuts for HTML.
“Newspaper” built specifically for the iPad. Current events, opinion, arts and entertainment, gossip, sports, iPad app reviews, crossword/sudoku. Very sleek interface. Infographics, videos, 360-degree photos are used to enhance stories. Users can add text and audio commentary. Content and stability have improved significantly over the past few months. I definitely recommend that you try it for free for 2 weeks.
I did prefer Reeder for my RSS reader, but it crashes constantly. Feeddler is stable, and meets the same needs (though not as pretty)
I don’t even use my computer for Netflix anymore. Perfect for streaming-only customers (as you can’t manage your DVD queue).
I’m only beginning to appreciate this app. Great way to find related music and discover new artists.
Great for listening to NPR and other talk radio stations around the country. Nice to be able to tune in to my hometown’s public radio station.
Words with Friends
Scrabble. Who doesn’t love scrabble?
Repetitive motorcycle game. I don’t know why this game is so addictive.
Read and organize ePubs and PDFs.
Digital textbook app. Can purchase by chapter or as a whole text. Hoping they’ll expand their library to the physical sciences soon
What doesn’t it do? Really? Best
$49 $19 $3 you’ll ever spend.
Best selling book of all time :) This app has 113 versions in 41 languages (and growing) which you can download for offline reading. Can take and share notes with other users.
