You're going to have to be a LOT more specific. What one person finds as a must have, many others won't.

What do you like/ want to do?

Regardless of how great Apples app store is this is my most used app list.

Facebook
Instagram
Google maps
Tapatalk
Pandora
Dropbox
Weather Channel

Everything else I use native Apple apps. Calculator, maps, safari, mail, messages, clock (alarm), camera.

I have quite a few apps but nothing I'd consider must have. Things like Netflix, Pizza Hut app, Amazon and stuff like that I use but not that often...

Tweetbot - Imo, the most robust twitter app out there.
Newsify - If you use RSS feeds to read your daily news from various sites, this is a great app for that.
Google Currents - Another news app, it just got updated a few days ago, and flows very well (better than flipboard imo, however it has overlap with Newsify).

And which news feeds should I search for and follow on Newsify?

These are some of my tech feeds, to give you an idea (I need to tidy these up, I have some overlap). One thing I recommend is using Google Reader to manage your subscriptions, and this way you can just hook up that account on Newsify. You'll be all synced up and happy after that
