    Well why don't you start off by telling us something about yourself and your interests so we can try and point you in the right direction. You and I might not agree on what is a "must have" app!

    I would say for me:

    iBooks: Never thought I'd read ebooks, total traditional paper guy but iBooks is amazingly lovely to use

    Goodreader: I prefer iBooks for reading PDFs but Goodreader can download them nicely for you...and even read from them

    iCab browser: if you want a more tabbed browsing experience. I find it nicer than Safari

    Friendly Facebook: As Facebook has no real iPad app yet this works really nice.

    mBox for Hotmail: if you, like me, are still using Hotmail

    Docs to Go or Pages/Numbers: still using both but slowly moving to Numbers and Pages. Docs2Go was my fav app for the old Palm units and the iPad version works great.

    Informant HD: awesome schedule app

    Pulse: best rss reader in my mind

    Airvideo: for streaming avi's over a network. Saves on conversion and saved memeroy space on iPad

    Oplayer or CineXplayer: actually plays avi's and other formats ON the iPad without conversion. Been using this more now than Airvideo. CinXplayer is a free app like Oplayer but I find not as good. These even work better if iPad is jailbroken, has iFile and the camera connection kit.

    Angry Birds, Plants vrs Zombies, Monkey Island SE, NY times Crosswords, Flight Control are my fav games.

    Flipboard, get Flipboard. Once you see that you will appreciate what the iPad can do for Internet content.

    iCab Mobile is a tremendous tabbed browser with extensions and many improvements beyond Safari.

    Go with Kindle. You can read books on many more devices. iBooks is iPad only. Stanza is great for public domain books.

    Since no one has recommended any music apps, I'll say iElectribe by Korg. It's almost the real deal.

    This.

    Personally, I prefer Atomic. Lightning quick, and no bloat or feature sprawl. Just a well-put together web browser. And adBlock for the win.

    Some Cydia apps that are unmissable for me:

    iXpectrum - Sinclair Spectrum emulator, or Timex to you guys across the pond. My childhood self would have probably killed to have an iPad-like device with his entire Spectrum games library pre-loaded.

    iMame4All - Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. My childhood self would probably have happily fired the Death Star at the Earth for an iPad-like device with authentic arcade emulation and all his favourite arcade games loaded.

    Just missing an Atari 2600 emulator now and my regression to a ten year old will be complete!

    Imho

    I didn't see anybody talking about board-games - in my opinion the best kind of game on iPad - so i recommend you "FunTable" simple and funny suite of classical game like Sudoku, Checkers, Hanoi, 4-in-a-row, Memory, TicTacToe and so on! ;)
    Great also for it's affordable price!
    Any other board-game recommended?

    Thank you :D

    LUDO is a great board game. It reminds me of the old Trouble game and Parchese.

    I also like Marble Mixer. Not so much a board game, but lots of fun for 4 players.
