    I am buying an ipad in the next few weeks, and wanted to know what kinds of apps you found useful for college?

    Good idea. No need to upgrade a 2010 MBP.

    In addition to the aforementioned apps, I use WordBook XL, Wikipanion, iBooks, and Free Books.


    WordBook XL is a handy tool and provides as a dictionary and a thesaurus. I had to pay for this app after the iPad 1 launch , FYI.

    Wikipanion is great for on the go information and basic background information of numerous subjects. Be careful using it as a reference, as some professors frown upon such action.

    Check iBooks and Free Books, as they offer some classics for free. Instead of paying $6.95 for a book you might read once, check the lists to see if its free. I was surprised to see books I had purchased a year or so ago, free.

    Also, there are apps tailored for specific disciplines such as: science;the Periodic Table app, history and law;Constitution app and a free advanced calculator app; math and science.

    I like the iPad and think it is useful for many things, but I bought a wireless keyboard, because I cannot type quickly on the touch screen.

    I hope this helps! :D

    writer for writing
    pages for editing the text writen in writer

    evernote for class notes since you can organize them and access them in any computer connected to the internet. It can also record sound in the same writen note.

    dropbox to access pdfs from my local computer
    goodreader because you can annotate on pdfs and mail your annotations as pure text
