    Let's start a thread about the first applications people plan on installing and why. Here is my list:

    1) The Elements - Yes, it is pricey, but I am a science major and I look forward to the functionality of this application. It might actually make learning entertaining.

    2) iPDF Reader - It was the only free PDF reader that I saw for the ipad.

    3) Kindle - I've had a kindle since it came out, I want to keep my library of books. I will probably continue purchasing through this. I figure Kindle books I will be able to read on the iPad and future Kindles, but with iBook, I will be locked down to only one device.

    4) iBook - Incase it has functionality that Kindle does not have.

    5) Netflix - Obvious reasons

    6) ABC Player - Same as above

    7) Dictionary.com - I like using words correctly.

    8) Isocards - I needed at least one game...

    Many thanks for the "In App Purchases Tip"
    Here is the info for those who don't know:

    1. Go to “Settings” -> “General”.
    2. Scroll to “Restrictions” and tap the “Enable Restrictions” button.
    3. You’ll be asked to set a passcode which will be used to lock certain iOS functions.
    4. Scroll down to the “Allowed Content” section and slide the “In-App Purchases” to “Off.”
    Once you’re done, only those who know the passcode you’ve set in the third step will be able to spend your hard-earned money on in-app purchases. It’s that easy. [​IMG]

    Words with Friends is a game exactly like Scrabble.
    MyPad is my Facebook app of choice, until an official one comes out.
    Echofon is my Twitter app of choice.
    Angry Birds is a game.
    Evernote is a note taking/word processing app.
