New to the iPad and was wondering what everyone likes to use them for?
I'm a newbie too, but so far have found the following apps very helpful:
Real Solitaire (the $ version) (this is the only game I play...obviously not a gamer)
The Recipe Box
CNN, Weather, etc.
I would also love to hear what other newbies find helpful.
Can't limit it to just one.
The ones I use constantly are:
GoodReader - Document reader and organiser
Evernote - Notes synced wirelessly between all my machines
Pulse - News reader for News channels and Papers
River ofNews- RSS feeds
BlogShelf - Blogs I keep track of.
One of my favorite things I like about my IPad is the ability to save things from Safari. For example, my favorite recipe site is called onetsp.com and if I search for it on Safari I can save it to my homepage on the IPad and I have all my recipes for easy use in the kitchen. I'm sure I'm not explaining this well, very NOT tech savvy!
Just down loaded Firefox but it wants to do some special synching...argh!!! Will have to wait till I have more time and brainpower to deal with that...LOL.
Gonna try Pool Bar and Drawing Pad...that should keep me busy for a while.
Ever note would make this so much better for you.. I just downloaded it and it is amazing
I don't think of apps in terms of "favourites", but the ones I find myself using most often are:
- Flipboard (my app of choice for browsing Facebook and other sites)
- Friendly (when I need to do stuff on Facebook)
- SkyGrid (personalized news/feed aggregator)
- ForScore (music score eReader)
Chapters for writing
IA Writer for writing
Netflix for movies
TuneIn for radio
Reeder for RSS feeds
Read It Later for easy saving and reading
Dropbox for syncing and organization
IMDB for quick movie reference
Kindle for reading books
CNN/USA Today/New York Times/BBC/CBS for news
Textfree for texting
Wunderlist HD for tasks and to-do listing
Amazon for shopping
Many others...but those I use most often.
Some goof around apps I use are:
Groupon (need to save some $$ with this addiction ;-)
Angry Birds and Flight Control... LOL

Anyone who plays cards or solitaire should buy Card Shark Collection Deluxe. Two bucks for 55 card games and the best interface ever in a solitaire game. You feel like Tom Cruise in Minority Report when you're playing.
There's a free sample with half a dozen games, but for two bucks... the artist who created it deserves our support.
