I feel like an app hoarder, I have so many. But, these are the ones I'm most obsessed with:
-Slippery Seal (great new game as addictive as Angry Birds and so cute: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/slippery-seal/id499638045?mt=8)
-Scramble with Friends, Words with Friends, Sudoku
-Tripadvisor (I travel and this is a great place to go for hotel reviews, etc)
-ESPN (All the scores, and easy to keep up with games while they are playing)
-Kindle (great for reading)
-News: Zite, CNN, NPR, Flipboard
-Music: Spotify, Pandora, NPR Music
-Movies/TV: Hulu, Netflix
-Productivity: Dropbox, Evernote

Mobli- photo app
Apr 8, 2012, 10:15 AM
I ended up downloading Evernote, Crackle, and Tripadvisor so far. Some of my favorite apps are
Garageband (even though is seems a little harder than the mac app and I'm still trying to learn it)
USA Today - I find myself now reading the news more than I ever have
Gmail - it got bad reviews, but I like it
iReal b - for learning music
My favorite games are:
Jetpack Joyride and Words with Friends.

AppAdvice - Never see anyone recommend this app. I've had it since my iPad 1 and it used to be free, but if it's $5 or less, totally worth the money...app reviews, app sales, app lists (IE apps for musicians, or apps for artists).
Zite - I'm on Zite at least twice a day, great way to get news by category that you select
Notability - my favorite note taking app I've tried yet...love the organization ability this thing has
Apr 9, 2012, 10:47 AM
appadvice seems cool... I kind of think it should be free though..

RedFlagDeals - Canadian Deals/Coupons app (Free)
Mint.com - Personal Finance app, helps me keep track of ALL of my banking needs (Free)
Flipboard - News and social feeds with a sweet UI (Free)
Dropbox - Gotta have my files with me at all times! (Referral link in siggy!) Maps - Gotta love 'dem maps!
Reminders - I actually use it quite often..
Current Games: League of Evil (1 & 2, Paid), The Impossible Game (Paid), Flight Control (Free? I don't remember), Sonic CD (Paid), ASYNC Corp. (Free)

The latest update for Procreate is amazing. I'm no artist by any means, but it's a great way to unwind.
Apr 13, 2012, 05:00 AM
I notice one entry for Infinity Blade Dungeons. I believe that hasn't released yet. I'm anticipating that one, too, but I'll probably wait for release before I may include it as a favorite app.
Apr 13, 2012, 09:35 PM

Circus Ponies notebook
my meditation app
Apr 15, 2012, 05:15 AM
Okay no particular order..
Goodreader: wow, value for money, tonnes of functionality, has replaced the dropbox app, PDF reader and displays documents more fluidly than pages. Allows abuse of trial program's which only allow 1 file to be stored too (chmlite). Ridiculous value.
Avplayerhd/ecplayer: either of these babies destroys the opposition on anything other than stylised mkv subs....
Sub video: the ultimate player for stylised subtitles anime or media. Drop a few files into a 5 sec converter and boom! Where every other player and conversion method failed, this was amazing.
Mangastorm - manga for free from many different sites. Thank you!
Evernote: fantastic app
Reminders: it's alright tbn... It's nice for listing revision ATM
Apr 16, 2012, 03:24 AM
Airvideo for video.

Swissquote is best replacement for iPhone Stocks app.
Help boycott apps on touchscreens with black backgrounds unless you like looking at your fingerprints.
Apr 27, 2012, 11:15 AM
Fairway HD - my gosh this game is addictive and mind-rotting!
Angry Birds HD
ESPN Score Center

Dropbox - storage
PDF Expert - annotate pdfs
Notability - record and take notes
Flipboard - news, politics, mac news, anything else your interested in
Mr. Reader - rss
Omnifocus - task management
These are the apps I use most often. Any others are only used sparingly. I recently switched from Reeder to Mr. Reader. I think its the best rss reader out there. I like that flashcards deluxe can download from quizlet and flashcard exchange.
May 4, 2012, 11:10 PM
Flipboard, IM+, PDF Expert, Reeder, and Atomic Web Browser are my favorite iPad apps.

So what are your favorite iPad apps so far and what do they do??
For games it would have to be Math Mage! I reviewed it for my site and it is good. You solve math equations to get power to dissolve beasts for what seems a very long time - for me anyway - LOL

My top 7 favorite iPad app till i have used it. All my favorite app are really enjoyed and useful to me. here it is
The best app and useful app is to me is "iWedPlanner". I like iWedPlanner. It is a nice wedding app for organizing the wedding planning in an efficient way and within the budget. It has many features like seating arrangement, RSVP, resources, to-do list and more. You download this from Appstore and install it.
May 25, 2012, 07:10 AM
I stopped using Evernote and Simplenote and switched my note taking to Trunk Notes.
I like Notesy and Writeup.
Note and Share
May 25, 2012, 11:07 AM
In no particular order:

May 25, 2012, 11:37 AM
Tweetbot to rule them all

May 28, 2012, 05:39 AM
Love App magazines.
May 28, 2012, 09:02 PM
I decided to try using only my iPad for a year and see if I can get along with only my desktop and iPad. Here are the apps that I find to be my top used apps:
2. Mercury Web Browser
5. Designs for Pages
7. Google Apps
Great suite for getting basic (and sometime more) business related jobs done. It keeps me in touch and I can monitor everything from my iPad.
May 29, 2012, 02:29 AM
ESPN ScoreCenter XL
Words with Friends
May 29, 2012, 06:33 AM
My little hero and Google Earth are my favorite iPad Apps...............
May 29, 2012, 10:45 PM
I found out today at work that Remarks is THE killer app for me. Simply unreal. The writing is super smooth and fluid, even on my 1st gen iPad, the PDF anotations are super simple, the whole app is for sure worth the 4.99 price tag. This app is killer.

I downloaded Maddie and Matt in my iPad and I was surprised to know that it was not like the other apps. Its educational and it teaches good manners. There’s a story in every scenario. Each of them will teach children how to act in different situations.
May 30, 2012, 10:59 AM
iWork, Dragon Dictation and Filemaker GO are my favorite iPad Apps for Business (http://ipad-applications.neiia.com/article/226/ipad-apps-for-business/)

Favourite ipad apps
Jun 12, 2012, 03:37 PM
Olive Tree BibleReader ... see youtube for all this offers
Notes Plus for handwriting (UPad deserves mentioning here)
FlipBoard and Zite are excellent special interest browsers
iFiles (for remote file organization / viewing / retrieving / from cloud services like dropbox, you're own ftp-server, FaceBook, Google Docs, Picassa, MobileMe, WebDav, Amazon, etc etc etc ... )
ArtStudio => for anyone wanting to get a little serious with doing digital artwork on the iPad
Photogenie for photo editing (although iPhoto is also good)
EBay is sweet and very responsive with it's recent updates -> almost better than regular web browser.
EASY BOOKS => AWESOME double-entry financial business software for anyone running a small business and wanting to keep track of profits, and categorized overhead expenses, invoicing regular accounts, managing payments, etc ... (May take a little bit to customized it's default template, but becomes more and more intuitive to use everyday. Very easy and organized. Also, makes filing at tax time very easy ... )
Jun 12, 2012, 06:31 PM
Scrolled through the posts and didn't really see too many people mention Pulse. It's one of my favorite apps on any mobile OS, more functional than Flipboard (thought not quite as beautiful) IMO.
Jun 12, 2012, 07:10 PM
Zite is one of my favorites...
