    iBird Yard - if you enjoy backyard bird watching/feeders, its an amazing little app. I've actually been able to lure in birds using the encoded bird calls in the app for a closer look.

    Dropbox
    ToDo
    Penultimate
    Goodreader
    Newsrack

    All nice apps. Some paid and some free. Dropbox is good for quickly transferring photos from my laptop
    news rack is a really nice RSS reader app. Although I do miss the wooden effect rack that there is in the iPhone version.
    I got ToDo to Because it is much cheaper than Things and does pretty much the same thing.
    Penultimate is good for quick notes when a keyboard is a little too slow.

    Also Sundry notes is a really good app for anyone needing to do anything mathematical or scientific because it has a load if Greek letters and a dedicated mathematical set if symbols aswell. And it's free iirc.

    Atomic browser. Definitely best one out now.

    Mirror's Edge. I'm totally addicted to this game.

    TakeNotes (formerly PadNotes) for marking up PDFs. This has been a game changer for me.

    Weather Channel HD. Always went to weather .com for weather, but now there's an app for that.

    Star Walk is amazing to play with and one of the best apps for showing off your iPad when someone calls it a giant iPod Touch.

    Maps. I'm working in South Korea right now, so using my GPS and marking locations allows me to get around quite well. Not really anything comparable to street signs here so, yeah it's another godsend.

    I'll have to give that a try! Sounds like fun.


    Also, I use 1Password, Evernote, GoodReader, iAnnotate, etc. There are more and more useful apps appearing, and we've only just begun....

    Hmm, in the last day or so, my most used apps have to be:

    -Dropbox
    -Early Edition
    -Evernote
    -Mail
    -Safari
    -Wordpress

    I just downloaded Epicurious, which looks to be a most used app too. Will check out FatSecret too though.

    So far...

    Evernote: organizes my web browsing snippets, photos, notes, ideas
    Pianist Pro: I use it to record music
    Keynote: great for presentations, demos (I get lots of "oohs and aahs")
    Mr. Fingerpad: great for jotting down notes quickly and drawing
    Tweetdeck: MUCH easier to access the endless columns I've created

    ... and Dropbox will likely become one of my key everyday apps.
    ... and also, I think Things will become one as well
    The NPR app is a pretty nice news app too.

    NewsRack integrates with Google Reader, so everything stays in sync.

    FatSecret is a great app, it probably would get a lot more users if they changed the name.
