    Splashtop. Either I didn't see it in the description or it wasn't there, but you have to install their software on the PC you want to remote into. As an IT person who oversees a few hundred PC's, not really an option.

    My favourite app is iAlbum for organising and showing off my photos according to catagory. Doesn't need dusting like the paper ones! Easy to set up and graphically very pleasing.

    Worst Purchase Ever

    Money for iPad - Should have just set a $20 bill on fire, at least I would be warm for a minute. :)

    iSoccer News, very plain simple, nothing special, just gives you links to websites for Soccer News, nothing original.News reader is better.bought it used it once have not used it since. the 99 cents would of been better spent on a cheap coffee.

    The only one I regret buying is the ePrint app which did not work for me at all. It wasn't a lot of money wasted, but it taught me a lesson! As far as most used, its a toss up between iBooks and Kindle depending on what I am reading at the time. I also use PocketTunes a lot when I am at home since I can listen to my local HD radio stations.

    Pocket God. How people love this I really do not know. Bought after hearing an interview with the creators and thought it would be a lot more than it actually was.

    The Gaurdian eyewitness is great. A new photo every day. And Zinio just delivered the December issue of Automobile magazine. Wonderfull

    Autocad has proven to be rather cumbersome.

    I regret buying iTeleport and Desktop Connect the day I got my iPad....
    On the other hand Splashtop Remote is worth $30 and I paid $3!!! Best app ever! RealVNC is also exceptional! Use them both daily.

    Iron Man 2 game is horrible and totally not worth it! Angry Birds is pretty awesome tho! And so is Plants Vs Zombies!

    I don't have too many I regret. I've been mostly very happy with my apps.

    The one app I regret is Air Display. Man, I cannot get that sucker to work!

    Sorry to add to an old thread, but I just spent another fruitless session trying to get that darn thing going! For $10, all I'm getting is nothing! The PC sees the iPad, but I can't get anything to show up on it. Total waste of my money!!!

    Sorry to vent, but this thread popped up at just the wrong time...

    I really wish I wouldn't have bought Pages and Racing HD or whatever it's called. Waste of money.

    I'm so with you, woman! I just bought, yesterday, an app for weather, HD. I forget the name. Only 2 bucks, but still. It kept freezing and so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it.

    The app doesn't do anything! All the degree numbers are in C, not Fareinheight (sp) The menu button pops up, but before you can tap a button it leaves!! LOL!

    I emailed the dev and she got right back to me and told me that there is a new update that is going to fix all of this.

    So I am really screwed, since I can't update!!
