Here are some good ones!

I have loads of apps but most of them are craps.

Here is a list of what I found good ones. Many of them are quite common but I still included the description for the sake of completeness. All these apps are free except only one as marked.

Dropbox - To store files online (many iPad apps can sync with Dropbox). Files marked as favourite in Dropbox will be stored locally.

GoAruna - User file manager (all files imported to relevant apps may have their own copies). It can also open (read only) many common known file types eg. Word, Excel etc.

PlainText - For editing text files, can sync with Dropbox

Simple Note – For editing text files. Can sync with own server.

Catch Note – For editing text files. Can sync with own server. Basic formatting (bold/italics/underline) possible.

Locayata Notes – For editing text files. Can sync with Dropbox. However, the file names in Dropbox are system generated.

iBook - To read PDFs and eBooks (can download books from Appstore as well)

Amazon Kindle – For reading ebooks. Some good free ebooks are available. If you have Amazon Kindle, all your purchases (free & paid) will appear within this app.

Flipboard - good reader for lots of news feeds, twitter links etc. You can configure it to show your own blogs, Twitter feeds etc. in a nicely formatted magazine like way.

Cloud Reader – can open PDF and zipped JPG file collections (often used for comics).

Office 2 HD (£5) – Can work with Word/Excel files. Allows tables/images in document. Some complex documents may be troublesome to work with if originally designed in desktop Word. Good cloud integration (Dropbox, Google docs etc.)
