    Where the Air Force sends me
    I recently bought my iPad and have been looking for apps to make myself more productive. I use it to study and edit PDFs mostly.

    So far I've bought and downloaded iAnnotate and SundryNotes. Now I'm looking for a good flashcard app. Know of any?

    Any other useful apps to make studying and accomplishing simple school/work related tasks possible please post....

    As a student, I'm torn between SmartNote and Sundry Notes. Both have their merits. I wish the developers would come together and combine their efforts.

    I use GoodReader for my PDFs, which is a great program for it. If you're going into medicine, Anatomy Lite is a fun little program to help you memorize parts of the human body. There are language dictionaries, if you're studying languages.

    Other than that, I haven't checked out any other education Apps.

    If you have a Mac, Mental Case is a great flashcard app. I don't know if they have a special iPad version yet, but I have used it to memorize a ton of definitions.

    I found gFlash+ to be an excellent flashcard solution. It's not iPad ready yet but you can use your Facebook account to access it. It also takes your flashcards and makes them into multiple choice tests.

    I have tried tons of flashcards apps on my iPhone and the best one by far was called 'iFlipr'. I don't know if the developer has any plan to make an iPad version though.
