Single Most Enjoyable Task/Activity

Hi all.
Just wondering what everyone thought as the best thing to do on their mini?
Is there any one task, or specific app that you find really enjoyable?

As a mini owner, I find reading the news via Flipboard the most enjoyable.

I was going to say FlipBoard too! It's such a beautiful app I use it all the time. Other favorite is Netflix. Pulse is good and I've recently become addicted to a game call Lep's World 2.

Flipboard is good but Zite is better. Google Currents isn't too bad either.

I've recently found Zite and use it more than Flipboard. But my most enjoyable activity is Angry Bird Stars Wars edition!!

By time spent? Reading books is probably what I've used the most time on. With either my music or NPR Music usually playing in the background.

Reading (iBooks and kindle) for me. The major reason why I wanted a 7" tablet was for reading and the mini fullfills that.

I also keep my karate notes in bento where I can easily search or review if need be.

Between preferring iBooks over kindle books (I still buy kindle books but I like ibooks) and using bento on the mac and iPad (syncs seamlessly) The mini is a better choice for me then say a Nexus 7

Interesting... Both of those games come from the same company... http://www.limbic.com/ourgames.html. If you're affiliated with that company, that would make me not want to check out those games...

It's not my loss, it's everyone's loss. I wouldn't like this site to devolve into something built on conflicts of interest.

The term used in the code of conduct is "shilling." I see the code of conduct shows 'shilling' as a bannable offense.

Really? And I'm "shilling" because I like two games from the same developer?

Then you should report me. This behavior is intolerable.

It's definitely a toss up between Tweetbot, MacRumors and WatchESPN. The size of the device makes watching sports enjoyable while still being very portable.
