Reasons ( in my opinion) why apple apps are better than others. Ok, not in everywhere, but still
The iWork has iCloud built in, it's really easy to transfer files, they automatically come in, save etc.
The interface is amazing, I use it for school ALL the time. You can do things so much easier than most apps.

About the USB disk, I meant something to transfer files easier. When you plug it in, in the apps tab, in file sharing if you get the app USB disk, you can transfer files onto your iPad ALOT easier.

I certainly wouldn't jailbreak.. No need.

Essential app - Amplitube. Best guitar fx available.

AGREE COMPLETELY
I broke mine as soon as I got it and it crashed like crazy,
I restored it then, when I found out 1 month ago, it was upgraded, I tried again, after that it crashed EVEN MORE!
Completely recommend not Jailbreaking your iPad.

This is one reason why I love this forum! I had never heard of CloudOn! How brilliant it is! My favorite apps otherwise are:
Quick office
Photogene, very good for editing photos
PhotomgrPro, good for creating albums
ZeroPc where you can access all your cloud accounts from one app
Slashtop to access computer
AVPlayer HD to play videos
iBooks
IM Pro
Skype
YouTube
Oh dear, the list goes on and on! I used to be into Angry Birds but not at the moment.
Enjoy your iPad, it is the most wonderful device!

No mention of Goodreader yet and that is my favourite app for all my lesson plans and teaching resources. There are loads of app suggestion threads on here so spend some time looking them up. Everyone has their FAVOURITE app but they may not necessarily be the one for you. Research - research - reasearch. I teach science to 11 - 16 year olds.
p.s. just love it! I'm a member of appolitus - 650 apps later and £'s poorer.

Oh yes! Goodreader, I forgot that, but,as you say, there are so many to research and find what is right for you.

I bought Goodreader last night...it's not bad but I haven't really dived into the app yet...I also bought Pages which I like a lot too...I'll probably get Numbers & Keynote soon since I could use those (I teach Elementary Physical Education so I don't give a LOT of presentations but I do a few). I do need to get the adapter to plug my iPad into a LCD projector...anyone recommend a good AND inexpensive one?

Thanks

Must have apps for a teacher...keynote, pages, numbers. Depending on which subject, the howstuffworks app (howstuffworks.com).

There are other very good office options besides just the Apple stuff. Docs to Go and Quick Office are excellent products that deserve a look for the teaching crowd. Just wanted to throw that in there. Make sure to get some fun games too, have some fun with it. :)
