    Windy - an incredibly powerful weather app
    YACReader - yet another comic book reader...but a great one
    Day One - really well done journaling app

    Word is kind of a must-have...but it’s not a great app.

    I still clearly remember the days before Office on iOS, back when Microsoft only cared about Office on Windows. Even then, many like me badly wanted to be productive on an iPad. But we had to turn to wonky, third-party solutions for editing Office docs. There was Documents-to-Go, some other app I can’t remember the name of, and a third one (also can’t remember the name) that actually was a heavily customized remote terminal app (they hosted a modified version of full Office on their servers and you’d remote in to use it).

    It was as cluster. The touch-adapted user interfaces were flat-out strange, especially when editing Excel cells. Lots of conversion errors.

    From that perspective, I’m thrilled to have real Office on my iPad, and it’s surprisingly slick and capable. But certainly not exciting.

    This is a really helpful thread. Out of a gazillion apps available it’s cool to see local favorites.

    I agree that Word on the iPad is not at all bad. In some ways, I prefer it to the desktop version, as it has much less clutter. But obviously that means fewer features. I think the features/functionality is the same as with the Web version in Office 365.

    Mostly well known apps

    Lightroom cc
    Affinity Designer
    Affinity Photo
    Autodesk Graphic
    Assembly (really fun to use)


    Splashtop (to remote into my pc/hackintosh, mostly for Xcode)
    BTT Remote (on an old iPad as a trackpad for Splashtop)
    Controller for HomeKit automation

    And lots of media apps...let's face it the 12.9 screen is ideal for media consumption.


    Besides the pencil I bought an Anker usb-c hub that has worked really well so far.
