I am new to apple products for the most part but have been involved with pcs and android for some time. I have other android products because of the freedom they offer for me. I just got an iPad 2 and I am wondering what are the best free and cost apps for the iPad. Also what are the benefits and risk of jailbreaking an iPad? Thank you for allowing me in your forum.

Hi and welcome to the Forum!
Regarding your questions, apps really are a personal choice in what it is that you want to do. Some I recommend are, Appshopper, it's a very good way of browsing what's apps are available, you can input a wish list of the apps you want and when they come on sale it will notify you, a great way of getting paid apps free, Dropbox great for transferring between devices and computer, Evernote a note taking app. Buzz player to play video, Splashtop to connect to your computer to access anything there. These are just a few, we have threads regarding good apps. As far as Jailbreaking have a look here -
2 very informative threads from which you will learn many tips and shortcuts for the IPad.
