    I bought an iTunes gift card the other day just so I could buy a few apps for my new iPad, but after browsing the store for awhile nothing catches my attention. Apparently plants vs zombies is awesome, but idk if it's worth 10 bucks. Anybody have recommendations?

    NFS Shift seems fun, PvZ is definately a good buy too.

    Need For Speed Shift is freaking awesome, worth every penny. Zombieville HD is only $1.99 and worth getting too if you are into that type of game. Let's Golf HD is a blast and has beautiful graphics. X-Plane 9 for the iPad is Amazing, check out Dungeon Hunter HD If you are into RPG games.

    So I guess when you wrote "apps," you really meant games, right?

    If you mean "Apps" instead of just games, then GoodReader and Air Video are must-have apps.

    Have you been able to beat the Drifting levels of NFS shift? It's kind of frustrating having beat everything else (including stage 4-7) but I can't get more than 50-60 seconds drifting so I can't get that fastest car.

    can Airvideo be used to as a file directory for offline videos like lets say for an airplane trip.

    No, sorry. It's streaming only. Very good though.

    I mean can you upload video on the ipad like Good reader and the airvideo will transcode it for you. Or do you need a server (main computer) to run it through...

    Real Racing HD, N.O.V.A HD, Dungeon Hunter HD, Low Grav Racer 2 HD, Fieldrunner, The Elements, Asphalt 5, Cocoto Kart HD online. They are some good ones I think.

    I decided to resurrect an old thread to ask the same question..

    Buying my first iPad soon, what are some must-have apps? I didn't bother looking at the responses in this thread as I figured they'd be outdated answers. I'm already planning on getting GarageBand. Any others?

    And I'm sure this is a basic question, but even if you purchased the iPhone version of the app, you also must purchase the iPad version separately, correct?

    Thanks!

    Yes, you need to buy the iPad version if the app isn't universal (with the little plus sign). Universal apps run on both iphone/ipad without pixel doubling (2X)

    I already bought the Ultimate Guitar tabs app for my iPhone. Is TabToolkit much better?
