    I'm a newbie too, but so far have found the following apps very helpful:

    QuickOffice
    Facebook (duh...LOL)
    Oxford Dictionary
    Real Solitaire (the $ version) (this is the only game I play...obviously not a gamer) :D
    The Recipe Box
    Calculator
    CNN, Weather, etc.
    Medical/Merck Manual

    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!

    - Dropbox
    - GoodReader
    - Mashable
    - 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)

    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.

    Thanks for the suggestions, may give that a try. I love a card game called Hand & Foot, would love to have that but the reviews are not good....hope they use the feedback to improve the app. :(

    What I use most are web browsers, I have 11 installed but three I use most.
    For file management, FileBrowser and DocsToGo.
    To control my PC, SplashTop Remote.
    Magazines on Zinio.
    Books on iBooks, Kindle, Kobo and Stanza.
    Drawing with SketchBook, ArtStudio and iPocketDraw.
    Slingbox to control a tv and listen on the iPad
    Various radio stations that have their own apps.

    Quite a few apps for different tasks such as the AppleRemote to control my AppleTV.

    I'm really looking forward to GarageBand next...

    I only have 2 apps in my iPad. With a lot of games.

    The 2 apps are iBooks and FB. Don't judge me.

    I tried to narrow my faves down to just one.. couldn't do it. My favorites are:
    * Dropbox
    * Documents (by Readdle)
    * Newsify
    * Wordpress

    Lots of reading and writing on my iPads.
