    I just graduated from the police department last week and as a present my dad got me a 32GB white retina. This is not my first apple product. Between my wife and I we have 2 iPhone 4S's. I am wondering what apps or accessories I should get beside all the basics....thanks

    Congrats on the graduation and on getting the iPad! A good app to get some ideas of what is out there based on your needs is AppStart, has tons of info in there and it is free. And a great app, also free, to find free apps that typically cost something but are free for a limited time daily is AppsGoneFree.

    Congratulations! I highly recommend a clear screen protector just to save the actual screen from scratches. The one I bought also helps reduce finger print smudges. You can get them for like $6 off eBay. Also I recommend a keyboard folio, it has dramatically improve the web browsing experience for me along with reducing the fatigue of holding the iPad for extended periods. Here is the one I purchased and it's great. Kensington KeyFolio Pro2 Removable Keyboard Case & Stand for iPad 4 with Retina Display, New iPad (3rd Gen) and iPad 2:Amazon:Computers & Accessories

    this she case is at office depot for 99.99 currently so Amazon is the place to get it: )

    I know the Zagg screen protector, I don't like it because its contains liquid and I am not good with that.

    Oh, you mean the spray you put on the screen before you apply the film? That is just to help apply the ZAGG without bubbles and place it correctly easier. I had a ZAGG touchscreen protector on my Garmin running watch, they are very nice indeed! I get why you'd be leery though with liquid, even if it is a spray, with an iPad. I've never used a screen protector for my 2 or my 3. I just keep them in a folio Oberon leather bifold cover and close them when not in use. Not too worried. If it was a phone, you'd bet I'd cover it though! Pockets and purses are brutal!

    I wasn't a fan of the application process of the zagg screen protector. I had a hard time with it, because the spray solution came out of the bottle and was in the bag! I had it on my droid phone and over the time the edges rolled up with lint getting trapped under it. Not sure if I'd get the zagg again. I think a dry application would be better for me!

    I need to know what screen protector to get. I don't want one that's too expensive and I need one with good quality without any liquid.
