    Angry birds HD … it's awesome now with the new update!
    Goodreader ... Good all-round filemanager (inapp) and PDF reader.
    Sketchbook pro or brushes ... if you are into drawing or sketching.
    Instapaper ... For offline reading, just mark it from anywhere in a pc or Mac or iPhone.
    Reeder ... For your google reader needs!

    These are what I remember offhand!
    Will post more later!

    You've mainly listed games. Is there anything else you want to use your iPad for?

    yep, it's just because games are the main thing im gonna be using it for, but any other app recommendations are appreciated, mind you that i'm in the UK so apps like ABC player are unavailable to me :(

    I would also reconsider elements if you are only going to play games, plus it's of more use to a student or a chemistry or metals buff! It will lose it's eye candy soon enough if you are not gonna use it regularly!

    I'm in the UK too. My most used iPad apps are:

    • iBooks
    • Instapaper
    • Reeder
    • Atomic Web Browser
    • Twitterrific
    • MLB At Bat 2010
    • Evernote
    • GoodReader
    • sobees Lite
    • WeatherProHD
    • Wikipanion
    • Docs2Go
    • Quickoffice
    • PCalc Lite
    • LogMeIn Ignition

    None of these are games and some are quite expensive apps but they all increase my personal productivity in some way. I'm the reverse of you, I hardly use my iPad for games, although I do have a couple installed.
