    This is the first time I have ever owned a ipad or any tablet for that matter. I am wondering if some people can give me some tips and recommend some apps. I have always wanted an ipad and the display is what pushed me into getting one.

    Some of the free ones I use most often:

    Flipboard is a great custom news feed. Beautiful layout

    CNN has a great app. You can watch the channel live if you have a subscription to a cable service.

    Dropbox of course for transferring files from iPhone/pc to iPad

    Evernote is another great productivity app for syncing stuff between devices.

    Kindle or iBooks for e-books

    Hootsuite is nice for syncing social networking feeds.

    Netflix if you have an account.

    for dropbox, does it download to your iPad? I am always confused about this ( i dont have an iPad yet, but planning to buy a 16 GB one). So would dropbox gives me "extra" space for stuff (non apps, etc.) or what?

    It's stored in the cloud, but you can cache stuff to your iPad by marking it as a favorite. Anything you start as a favorite will be available when you are not connected to the internet and will use local storage.
