Title says it all.
Splashtop is cool, 5$ to link your computer to the ipad, you can use it around the house to view hulu and other ipad incompatible sites, videos you dont want to convert, or just use your normal pc apps with touchscreen.
There are a lot of vnc apps that let you control it over the itnernet from anywhere, but those are generally more expensive, slower and hard to setup.. so this is cool if you just want it on your local wifi.. runs smooth and takes 30 seconds to get working.
Oh and I like "pulse" to quickly check up on news and my favorite websites, though i havnt tried all the alternatives.
These are the apps I use a lot.
Zen Viewer - http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/zen-viewer-hd/id413108517?mt=8
Twitter and Twitterrific - I love both apps.
Flipboard - Started to use this recently.
Remote - Works great with AppleTV
If you have a TiVo premiere get the TiVo app- it's cool
Apparently series 3 owners get it soon.
in no particular order:
Pocket Informant HD
...these are my can't do without apps...
Not being snarky, but three todo apps? That tells me none of them are worth it/right.
Id like to recommend these apps for iPad which are listed below:
NetFlix ($8.99 Monthly)
Words with Friends HD ($2.99)
Angry Birds ($4.99)
well, Pocket Informant gives me an inegrated to do and calendar view. I rarely edit todos on this app. This is quite unique.
2do und ToDo are both really great. Sometimes I just happen to prefer one gui over the other.
...as all three sync with toodledo I'm totally free to use whatever suits me in the moment.
I had 2do for the iphone and and when it became universal app, I loaded the ipad version as well.
I already used todo from appigo at that time on the ipad.
and you can't go wrong with iPad Games
Free to-do apps
I am new to iPhone, and I got my iPhone 4 about a month ago. I am struggling over the to-do app options that are out there. So, I have 2 questions for ALL of you: 1) what is wrong with the free to-do list apps? I'm not defending them, I just don't know what I am missing, if I choose them, instead of any of the paid apps. 2) I am getting confused with the fact that I have to "buy this app that syncs with this other app that you have to buy' , etc. Is there one app that does it all? I don't need to sync to Outlook, since I am ALL APPLE, now (finally!). I do think it is a handy idea to have my to-do list sync with iCal, but it is not necessary. Any help would be appreciated!
Some apps that I would personally recommend (in no particular order):
Angry Birds Seasons
Someone has already said it:
Dropbox = my best friend.
Documents To Go - if you do a lot of office type work on the road
OmniFocus - a truly well-designed to do/GTD app
Reeder - no other RSS app is worth considering
InstaPaper - I'd move to a cave with no internet connection if this went away
NoteShelf - my favorite handwritten notes app
DropBox - it's the dropbox of dropbox apps
For reading my RSS feeds/news:
Plants vs Zombies
Alternative Web Browser:
For watching videos:
VLC (my videos)
Here are the ones I've been using the most so far (got my iPad 2 last Tuesday)
Dropbox for getting files on the device easily.
Goodreader for reading and marking up PDFs
Atomic Web Browser--I love tabbed browsing and the private browsing feature
Evernote for organzing my notes from meetings etc. ( I take them in the Notes app) and synching them to all my PCs.
Kindle App for e-books (I have a Kindle and still mainly read on it) so prefer this to iBooks or the others as it's were my books are).
DirecTV if you're a member. Fast way to check the guide, set up recordings if you have a DVR etc.
News Apps: NY Times (going to $20 a month--but Top News section will remain free), USA Today, Politico, NPR, BBC, CNN, Zite, Pulse, The Hill
Sports Apps: ESPN ScoreCenter, NBA Courtside Game Time, March Madness
Games: Plants vs. Zombies, Angry Birds, Words With Friends, whatever free solitaire app you like best etc.
Skype--iPhone app only, but still looks good. Essential for me as I don't have any friends/family on facetime currently as like me they're all PC people.
Marvel and Comixology for comics
Zinio for magazines
Pandora for streaming music
OpenTable for making restaurant reservations if you live in a city
Epicurious--great free cookbook
Backgrounds--huge collection of wallpapers
Pages, good reader, chopper 2, stick golf, Photopad/ps express, weather+, ssh terminal, teamviewer, usa today, pocket pond
also, can someone recommend me a voice-guided GPS app that doesn't suck? I was using motion X for awhile until it made me exit highways for no reason only immediately to get back on.
app advice, zite, good reader, evernote, pages, notetaker hd, new world colony, osmos, movieslate hd, pocket call sheet, march madness, Screens, netflix, dropbox, box.net, artemis viewer, ProPrompter, Rehearsal, CodeRed, DSLR slate, Artemis remote, PocketLD, Sun seeker, - looking forward to more great filmmaking apps and final draft when it arrives.

Thanks to both of you for point me in the direction of Zite. It is awesome!
DiamPrice, UPAD, Bento those are mine top three
Not really. If he's like me, he spends more time entering the items than doing them.
I just enjoy organizing the things I have to do. It gives me the illusion that I have a life.
