    The iPad’s digital coattails are long and there are no shortage of people riding them. The most persistent appear to be rotating around its axis as if trying to acquire a suntan by means of the occasional ray. Their status being elevated by merely being in proximity to one.
    Is it all hype? Or does Apple have another big winner on its hands? Judging by my friends’ responses, version one is a fantastic first try, but wait for version 2 (here’s another perspective by David Winer).
    But if you already have one or are getting one, then start with these apps for business.
    The Judging Criteria

    Below are all iPad apps that were made for the iPad (not simply an iPhone port). They were also highly rated by the community and/or suggested by Steve Bjorg and others when a request was made via Twitter.
