Im a new ipadder. What apps are MUST HAVES, including games. Free or otherwise.
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!
My personal preferences of must have:
3. PDF/doc reader-goodreader app,Docs2Go
Free games app, i just install every game that interest me and delete them as soon as I'm bored with it.
I am a professional in the Internet marketing biz, a musician, and a casual "gamer" aged 32 from US and A )
Updating my recommendations
iBooks - Free
Kindle - Free
megenious (if you have kids)
Video - Free
News - Free
Print n Share
Games - (get the HD version of course)
Hero of Spart 2
Dizzypad (if you have kids)
Shark or Die
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.
Well, it really depends!
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.
