    Just got my iPad and love it. Now I need to stock it with apps. I have goodreader and all of my PDFs transferred to it. I also have pandora, netflix, abc, weather channel and a few others. What are the must have free and paid apps. I need some good games as well. I love this thing but I already can't get it out of my apple case.
    Thanks guys

    Best Apps?

    Just picked up an iPad a few days ago and was looking for some advice on the best apps out for it right now. What are your favorite apps?

    And a sub forum for things that get repeated every day, like newbie questions, perhaps iPad 101's etc etc.....

    I wrote a mod and requested this, nothing every came of it. Figures!

    This board is a mess, way too much going on here!

    There should be a thread entitled Newbie Q & A for iPad or just a thread for newbies to iPad period and stickied!

    This I totally agree with, I know some people here don't, oh well.

    Kind of hard to say for games since people like different types. But I have Scrabble, Flight Control HD, and Real Racing HD, all really good. Pinball HD looks great too, I'll probably download that tonight.

    For non-games I also have Pages (very good but somewhat flawed also, weird, I know), BBC, NPR, SketchPad Pro, and Calc XT (free calculator app). But the truth is I probably use the built-in apps about 90% of the time (Safari, iBooks, Mail, Calendar, Maps). All good apps.

    Might as well check out Tap Tap Radiation. Free with 35+ free songs.
    Words with Friends is great if you like word games, its basically Scrabble against people on line. :p
    Zombieville USA is a fun zombie shooter for $2.
    The presentation of "Crosswords" is brilliant. Great use of the iPad's size and functionality.
    Check out Charadium Lite, I loved it enough to buy the full.

    You totally work for this company. Every time someone asks about apps, you're like "OMG (Holoblog/Captain's blog) IS AWESOME!"
    Not to mention you have a link to Holoblog as your signature. Also the fact that you joined like pretty much just as the apps were released (along with the iPad, i know i know) is a little fishy. not substantial, but still.

    Also? While Holoblog is cool looking, the actual use is lacking. So I can...write my own personal journal that stays native to be ipad? Oh, i can also send it to email. Oh, Facebook statuses now?

    None of those are even blogs. Maybe if it supported pushing your blogs to wordpress/blogspot/tumblr. But basically all it does is look cool.


    Anyway...

    I don't have my iPad, but for me personally my list of "must have apps" i have downloaded are:

    Netflix
    ABC Player
    Goodreader
    Wikipanion
    Reuters

    Thanks for the replies guys. I was thinking plant vs zombies. I really want command and conquer but it's $13 and people say it's laggy.

    There should be an "iPad Beginers Guide" forum.

    Angry Birds plays so smooth on the iPad. Scales pretty well on 2x. On the iPhone it's a little laggy at start up.

    Few apps, like Facebook, Huffingtonpost, Tom's Hardware, etc it is just better to use the website.
