    Best uses for ipad 4

    Hi everyone,
    A friend of mine who is new to iPads has just got his and would like to know how best to maximise his use. I've mentioned the usual uses but am curious to see what apps are recommended from a male perspective. He has requested a list of recommended apps. Please can you help?

    BOY, you've got to be kidding!

    There are now 250,000 apps available specifically for the iPad (LINK HERE), not to mention thousands of others that will run on the device!

    I would first suggest that your friend join the forum, and then express his needs & interests - also, a simple visit to the APP Store will provide plenty of browsing for apps of interests - looking forward to his participation -

    Well thank you for your most helpful response "rolls my eyes" too. Having had every version of the iPad since release I am aware there are hundreds of thousands of apps, I thought that as this is such a friendly community the more mature users would be happy to recommend some new "popular choices" they have found outside the norm. I have suggested making use of the forum but he's not keen on forums and after this response I fully appreciate why now.

    I'm not sure these are outside the norm but I like Tom the talking cat lol silly but fun, over drive for library books, amazon MP3 player, a cheat app for words with friends, zite, groupons, Wikipedia app, and wall paper hd, I have the normal angry birds face book, twitter.... Stuff like that.... Hope that helps some...

    Well, ya know that was a 'tongue in cheek' response to encourage your friend to join the forum and tell us his interests - this is indeed a friendly place w/ plenty of members willing to help.

    But if he is not interested, then I would encourage him to visit the Apple App Store, and download AppAdvice & AppStart - there are plenty of suggestions in these apps which are well organized & fun to use - I'm sure that there will be plenty of interesting choices for him - peace

    Well here is one I love.....

    Pulse

    It's for everyone but with headlines from Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, and a ton of gadgets it's a must have for most males.
    iPad 4 - 64GB Black Wi-FI
    ZAG-Folio Bluetooth Keyboard Case

    I like Flipboard for feeds. Does it come included? I can't remember.

    Kindle for books, in addition to iBooks. If you like reading, get McSweeneys app for stories. Also Goodreads booky network.

    Atomic Browser for browsing, plus Puffin browser for viewing awful flash content.

    Remote for controlling iTunes on PC through external soundcard-amp-speakers.

    Twitter - yeah, I know, but the app is pretty good.

    Dropbox - simple interface and file sharing between PC and iPad.

    PS Express and PhotoPad for basic photo editing - if he's not fussy about results. Get both because on their own they don't do everything you need.
