    Books, magazines, FaceTimeing with grandkids, shopping, taking garden, grandkids, quilt photos (the camera is not great, but adequate), supermarket lists, Christmas lists, reminders of everything with my failing memory...videos of quilt classes, etc., etC., etc.

    Hello Weeman - welcome to the forum!

    There are 10s of thousands of apps and numerous hardware devices for the iPad, so almost impossible to suggest specific ones that might serve your needs - some ideas have already been given; hardware devices that I own are an HDMI adapter/HDMI cable which allows you to attach the iPad to your HDTV to watch movies, project videos, and show pictures; Apple BT (Bluetooth) keyboard (really needed if you do a LOT of typing either as emails or into writing apps, such as Pages), CCK (camera connection kit), and BT headphones (which I use mainly w/ my iPod).

    Concerning apps, you really need to provide some information on your interests; check through the forum, visit the App store, and review some magazines on 'best' apps; I'm subscribed to PCMag, PCWorld, & iPhone (two of those on my iPad only using the Zinio app); these constantly have comments on apps and occasional feature articles on the 'best' ones - check their websites. Good luck in your search - so far, you've barely touched the ground!

    Have you tried the teleportation device on your iPad2 yet? I use it to travel between galaxies since I already reached the end of the information super highway two weeks after I purchased my iPad2.

    j/k...........There are hundreds, if not thousands of cool apps to fit your every needs. Enjoy your iPad2!!

    Dont worry so much. Use it for what you need to use it for. Noone will likely use every possible feature or whatever. Mine is for browsing, gaming, and some productivity. Lovin it!

    hi guys thanks for the replies , i know there are lots of apps to basically do anything , i am from uk and love the nba so i use the nba.tv app to watch the games - just wondered if anyone used it for something maybe out of the box? would hate to have a top tech item and not use it to its potential - like having a ps3 and only playing ps2 games on it

    As I learned in this forum the free for the basic storage program "Drop Box" should be on everyone's iPad.

    Best item I bought so far for my 2 week Ipad was Apple TV. Now I can stream all of my movies from my PC to my 62" TV without any wires!

    Weeman-I really did not know what to expect from my ipad when I purchased it last September. Only until I started to really begin to understand its use was when I started searching for very specific apps to fit my needs for work and home. Play around with it for a few weeks, than you will have a better idea as to what you have been using it for! Good luck and welcome!
