    Do you guys have any tips on apps that you like to use when your iPad or iPad 2 is docked next to your computer? I made a little compilation of Chris Cunningham videos in portrait mode (cropped off the sides and used only the middle of the videos), and I play that on a loop sometimes when it's in the dock. It gets pretty repetitive though.

    Any suggestions on apps I should check out that can make my iPad 2 do sweet stuff when it's docked in portrait mode next to my computer? Any cool HD scenic video apps or anything? Or maybe cool screensaver stuff?

    Weather HD is a start

    Just FYI you don't HAVE to use it cos you have it. I use it as I need it even when docked next to my laptop.

    You will probably like this App. I always have it going when my iPad 2 is docked next to my computer. It also wakes me up every morning.

    Nice, I'm really liking this one! I'm thinking about picking up the full version so I can get rid of that ad at the bottom and get more background videos. If you have the full version, how are the rest of the videos?

    Anyone else have any suggestions?

    FlipBoard also has a nice overview of your RSS feeds when you swipe back from the homescreen of the app. Perfect for docking.

    I use AirFrame, iQuarium, substrate, Flipboard, Weather +, and Nightstand Central. I'd like to find some better screen savers however.

    AirFrame is great for displaying pictures from flickr. iQuarium is OK but you have to earn the stuff to put in the tank. Substrate is nice but gets old. Weather + and NightStand are nice clock/weather apps. Flipboard is OK but you get a giant Flipboard logo taking up the corner and the text is sometime hard to read.

    I'd really like some sort of news/headlines/pictures slideshow which I can tap when something interesting comes up.
