    Too many to mention.

    That's testimony to my membership in AA.

    Yes - but they don't know you mean Appaholics Anonymus....:D

    My biggest disappointment is the free app that you use as a '3' network customer - it doesn't even respect screen orientation, its touch 'sensitivity' is awful and it let's you play a game to get your network usage - really? What were they thinking. Bizarre....

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    Pricewise Smartpad was the largest let-down so far. It's an organizer app, which is supposed to be smart, but somehow the developer forgot to include a weekly overview, not to mention that it shows events on the wrong date (always one day early) :mad:

    Regret

    Buying GarageBand now that I have Amplitube, apart from that none really, although Dead Space (due to my inablity to aim properly) will last until the Ipad3 is released :D

    Since it looks like this thread is going to 'take off' it might be worth reminding Members that you can get a refund for any app that fails to satisfy. Just call the Apple Support line with the reference number of your puchase (on your iTunes invoice) and the refund will be credited to your iTunes account. Many members have done this and I've yet to hear of a case where a refund has been refused. (If you want to be cynical then it's because Apple keep their cut of the original purchase price and the developer refunds the full amount to the original purchaser).

    Thanks Tim, thanks for blurting out my shameful vice. I was hoping peeps would decipher 'AA' as my raving 2 bottles of scotch a day habit. Much more respectable. Thanks mate. Just hope nobody I know reads this thread. I'd be finished.

    Same here, way too many to mention.

    I do a bit more research now before purchasing an app.

    I bought backgammon HD about a week ago because I like to play online against real people and not computers , this seemed to be the best app from what I could see ,but after hours of trying to get matched up with an opponent it could not find one . This is not the app to buy if you want to play online, very disappointing.

    Netflix.

    Okay, so watching movies is a must-have if you have a subscription, but the rest of the app has always been pretty horrid. It was bad enough when it was just a repeat of their website, but then they changed it to what is essentially an iPhone app being displayed on the iPad. And you can't put things in your mail queue. I tend to go to the web version (weak though it is) for this reason.

    I wish they'd take a good, hard look at Hulu Plus and Crackle and figure out that you CAN load pictures relatively fast and have a decent interface for browsing.

    Wish I could be that fore-thoughtful... I just end up buying anything that looks like it fits my needs of the moment (games included).

    I got a free alarm app, but it was a joke, as It would only work if the app was open.

    Ndrive! Bought it "on sale" for $3.99. Bought it because you didn't have to download maps. Was removed from the app store two weeks later never to be seen again. Maps were crap to begin with, was hoping for an update. Couldn't even find my house in a subdivision that has been there for 20 years.

    Stereolizer. Great looking app with a funky interface but I didn't stop to think that it wouldn't feature the BBC radio stations. It has Worldwide but not 6 Music, 4 Extra or radio 2

    Absolutely. One of the first apps I bought. Great UI but pretty limited with channels. I never use it.
