    What apps would you recommend for a person to try that's new to the iPad? I already got garage band, and it's amazing. Does anyone know of any games that will take advantage of the horsepower of the iPad 2? I'm also looking for a good note taking app for classes as well as suggestions as to which office app is best to view/edit power points and PDFs.

    Other than that, what apps could you not go without on your iPad?

    Game: Infinity Blade
    This is an amazing game. Probably the best demonstration of where gaming is going. It goes head to head with console games, and wins. If you're looking for a racing game, Real Racing is my favorite one. I haven't played Real Racing 2, but I'm sure it's good.

    Notes: Notes Plus
    A nice little app for taking notes. A lot of neat features built in. I've also heard Penultimate is really good, but again, I haven't tried it. I would strongly suggest getting a stylus if you want to take notes.

    Productivity: iWork (Pages / Keynote / Numbers)
    By far the best set of office apps in the App Store. Very clean, and very user friendly. Pages for documents/PDFs, Keynote for presentations.

    And if you're a student in any math or science classes, WolframAlpha is a MUST HAVE. It will blow your mind.

    Noteshelf - it allows you to WRITE notes down, have different books and has templetes for daily tasks. You need a stylus to get the best out of the app. It has replaced all paper products.

    Notes plus looks promising since then i can type and handwrite my notes (picking up a stylus tomorrow).

    Has anyone replaced their laptop with an ipad for note taking in college? Also, i know keynote may work for creating new presentations, but most of my professors upload their lectures in powerpoint format. Is there a good app that will allow me to add to the slides or take notes along with each slide?
