    Playing Movies -- I don't do this outside of apps like Netflix and Hulu; and rarely there. I prefer the big computer screen (27") for movies.

    MP3 Player -- I just use Music and iTunes, for now.

    Torrent Downloader -- Not even sure you can find one without jailbreaking. And given the rampant abuse of this technology the subject is likely to get you into trouble here.

    Video Downloader -- Again, I don't do this. If I do need a few videos on the iPad I import them into iTunes on the computer and sync them to the Videos app; but I almost never do this.

    PDF Reader -- I like PDF Expert for documents I may want to annotate and iBooks if all I'm going to do is read them.

    Microsoft Office -- Hard to beat the Microsoft apps already available in the App Store. They are free, and you can enable almost all the functionality with a free Microsoft user account.

    My most used apps:

    Accounts2 - personal budgeting and checkbook
    Day One - person log/journal app
    Documents, by Readdle - good all-around file manager
    Feedly - news aggregator
    Leonardo - image editor
    PDF Expert - reading and annotating .PDF files

    Hello Fbus02 - I have an iPad Air 2 (Wi-Fi only but w/ 64 GB of storage) - so your first mistake w/ this device is to have purchased one w/ only 16 GB which you will regret (may have been OK 2-3 years ago) - you are quite limited on what to store on this device, e.g. I've added a LOT of MP3 music and apps and have already consumed 30 GB - my main point for your lack of storage is to tell us what your main apps & storage (e.g. music, books, movies, etc.) are desired - you really do not have many choices w/ the 16 GB - sorry but true. Dave :)

    P.S. Depending on your needs, the request for only 'free' apps is also a misconception - again, depending on what you want to do w/ this device, apps that may be to your best advantage may cost a few bucks, so forget about 'free' and pick a price that is acceptable to you, whether one or two dollars or $5 or more.

    Forgot about free. I actually tend to avoid free apps and services, unless they are one time use throw aways, or casual games. I like quality, and I like some assurance that the developer is making enough money that they will 'probably' still be around a year later; when I've invested all my time and data in their product.

    Hi TP - I really hate that attitude of 'free apps' - you pay hundreds of dollars for an iDevice and then expect all apps to be free, many of which are inferior and/or have irritating ads (which I understand are needed for these developers to support their efforts) - BUT, for those considering apps for their iDevices, decide on what you need to do and look closely at the reviews - an app that may cost you a few bucks (i.e. USA dollars) or even $5 will likely be a much better option - of course 'free' apps can be easily downloaded, tried, and deleted which is probably a very common occurrence - just my 2 cents - Dave :)

    I tend to agree, but also try to remember that not everyone is the same situation. Some receive their iPads as gifts or part of a business or educational program. These people might be on a limited budget; have a 'gift card' limit from parents, school, whatever; or some other situation I haven't thought of.

    So, I say, if you can pay for apps and services it's a good idea. It helps support quality developers, encourages a healthy app store, and generally gets you better apps. If you do use free apps, remember that you are getting them for free. Don't expect them to be the 'best' apps. And don't gripe about the best apps costing money. Developer's need to eat too.

    I feel the need to chime in here and say don't be afraid to pay for apps, or at least research them a bit. The reason I say this is that I just bought a running/walking app for my iPhone after doing a little reading. The app was $3.99 but turned out to be worth much more than that due to the type and amount of information the app provides, as well as its other features. This app, in my opinion, should have cost three times what the developer charged for it, so I was tickled pink to find it at its current price. I used to be an android developer and, from what I've seen, paid apps on iOS are much more polished and of higher value than many of the paid apps I used while on android. Needless to say I'm much more willing to pay for apps on iOS.
