Goodreader by a longshot. I actually feel bad for only paying .99 for it.

I'm frustrated beyond belief that I can't import iWork '08 files into the iPad, so I have to rather ironically copy them into Office first and then transfer them onto my iPad. So I'm slightly peeved at Pages and Numbers so far.

I've tried a few games that have blown me away as well

NOVA
Super Monkey Ball
Homerun Battle

The news apps are amazing, particularly BBC, CNN, and the NPR app. Great for any good patriotic liberal American!

I haven't gotten many. I did buy the 3 iWork apps and I find them to be extremely well done. I never cared for Numbers on the Mac, but the iPad version is a joy to use for some of the budgeting spreadsheets I keep.

I got Flight Control HD too. Already addicted to it again. The new bigger maps are great, but really tough. I hesitated spending $5 on it but am glad I did now.

I hope there are some free versions of games coming out soon. There are a lot of $10-15 games that look great, but I want to play a free demo of a level before I spend that.

couldn't you just export them from iWork as a .doc?

So far:

iBooks
Pages
Zinio
ABC player
Pandora

Really want a good study/notepad app to come out.

Surprised that I enjoy pages on this thing. Typing is actually pretty decent.

Rock Band is awesome on the iPad. It's not iPad native yet though.

You can export Numbers '08 documents to a Microsoft Excel (xls) spreadsheet and then import that into Numbers for iPad, even though you can't import Numbers '08 spreadsheets directly into Numbers for iPad.

Is this the definition of irony?

I've watched three movies on Netflix now. By far my favorite app. Probably going to get the MLB app, too.

Also impressed with twitterific and abc player.

I'm patiently waiting for the Madden app. Should be really cool on a bigger screen.

I only grabbed a couple of apps.

iKeys for iPad is by far the best piano app I've used. It sounds like it's a real piano, rather than the usual crappy samples that most piano apps use. Way better than pianist IMO, and it's way cheaper.

The other one I bought is iHeritage. It's an awesome family tree maker. I took my iPad over to my great grandmother's house this morning to get info on my ancestors. It was awesome. Well worth the $3 it cost.

I still need to grab the iWork apps though.

You're actually getting the ABC player to work consistently without crashing? I've given up on deleting/reinstalling it until there's an update.

Sam and max is awesome on the iPad and being able to play it 2weeks before it comes to other platforms is just an added bonus.

Yeh no issues at all. My wife and I rewatched the Modern Family iPad episode last night. Smooth play back and looked great.
