    Productivity:

    • Dropbox: file management (unfortunately without rename functionality)
    • GoodReader: for iCloud file management and (easy) annotation
    • PDFExpert: for more difficult/ambitious annotation
    • Pages: for creating documents/letters

    Social/News:

    • Tweetbot for iPad (Twitter): to stay informed - my personal news channel
    • Facebook: to keep in touch with my friends
    • Flipboard: to get the best of all worlds in one app
    • Instapaper: for reading saved articles

    And of course the build-in apps: iMessage, Mail, Calendar, Reminders, Notes

    I use the built in apps where available.

    For additional apps, some of my favorite 3rd party:

    Downcast
    Netflix
    Facebook
    Kindle
    CamViewer
    Notability
    DropBox
    Amazon
    Camera+ (iPhone all but works great on the iPad @2X)
    WebEx
    PlainText
    IMDB
    Wikipedia

    These are Apple freebies, great stuff:

    Remote (if you have a shared iTunes library or an AppleTV it’s a must have)
    iTunes-U
    iBook

    Some current games we’re having a blast playing:

    Swordigo (highly recommended if you’re a fan of ol’ school Zelda/Mario, was mirroring to the 54” plasma last night!)
    Paper Monsters
    Choco Loco

    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

    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)

    CNN

    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

    Dropbox

    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

    The latest update for Procreate is amazing. I'm no artist by any means, but it's a great way to unwind.
