We Rule, We City, We Farm – Many know I love these apps, similar to farmville but in my opinion better and designed for touch especially iPad
News – I get news in a variety of ways such as :
Flipboard which offers magazine style news selected and including facebook and twitter
Sky news has a lot of video as well as timelines and news articles
Early edition is good for RSS feeds displaying like a news paper
Reeder is best google reader app with good UI
Metro app is also good for quick news
Guardian Eyewitness – The day summed up with one photo, looks beautiful on the screen.
Airvideo – I use this to stream over wifi unprotected video without syncing and also to convert videos and playback on iPad and Apple TV
iPlayer – BBC has a great HD version of iPlayer
Movies Now HD – Great for checking trailers and times.
iWork – Pages and keynote is crucial for iPad and work really well displaying documents and keynotes with great performance and almost as fast as using it on a Mac. I think that Numbers is a disappointment though and wouldn’t recommend it.
Note taking – Evernote is my main note taker syncing up to the cloud and allowing location, pictures, audio and text notes.
iTeleport – Best VNC client for viewing computers screen
Goodreader – To store multiple files
Mindnode – The best mind mapping application
Instapaper – For saving news articles for later viewing
iStudiezPro – I plan to use this extensively when I go to uni.
Calcbot – The best calculator that includes a listing feature so you can find calculations.
Dropbox – Access all my synced files
Magazines – I regularly read GQ, Wired, and Time Magazine. I also subscribe to magazines from app publisher Pixel Mags (@pixelmags) and with Zinio
Games – Angry Birds, Chopper 2, Monkey Ball, Mirrors Edge, Zen Bound, Avatar, Brothers in Arms 2, Shrek Forever After, N.O.V.A HD, Flight Control HD, Blokus, Gangstar HD, Little Things.
Social – I find that Facebook works best in the web browser and that Twittelator Pro is the best Twitter client currently.
