    Playing with the new toy now, He even sprung for a 32GB model so I won't need to worry about space problems :D

    Reading through the forums for tips & tricks but need to ask what in your opinion are must have apps?

    You are lucky to have such a good husband! :D

    Must-have apps? Totally depends on what your interests are. But I'd say get Dropbox and/or Onedrive, for exchanging files between your computer and the iPad. Also, turn on Find My iPad and iCloud backup. If your husband also has an iOS device, get Find My Friends and friend each other, and you have a quick way of letting each other know your location. And download the iWork and iLife apps that you get for free with your new iPad.

    Check out the Top Apps list in iTunes for a start. Then, if you share some of what you like to do or are into, I'm sure other members will have LOTS of suggestions.

    I'd suggest Apple's free Podcasts app. Podcasts are free, and there are SO many amazing high quality podcasts out there. I like to listen to them while I'm driving to work, on a lunch break, doing laundry, etc. My favorite podcast is "Hardcore History" by Dan Carlin. It's not some dry history lecture, it's pretty fascinating stuff. For someone who has never heard his podcasts before, I'd suggest starting with Show 41 "Thor's Angels", covers the post Roman collapse period. There is also a lot of NPR podcasts that are pretty good.

    Depends what you are into. I like my sports, so have the BBC and Sky Sports Football apps installed.
    If photography is your thing then Lightroom (if you have a CC subscription) or snapseed a both great.
    Games are fun, but very personal taste. Spend some time on the App Store and read some reviews.

    Nope! He did something VERY wrong!

    Enjoy the new toy. Good hubby you have there. Would not concern myself with apps right away. Get use to it first and see what you will use it for mostly. Then it will be time to look for apps. We all use our iPads very differently from one another, so apps I use, may be useless to you.

    My darling wife just took over mine. Who am I to argue with the powers to be. Guess I kind of gave it up, so to speak.

    So did you get yourself another one?

    And yes, I firmly believe that "What is the wife's, is hers. What is the hubby's, is also hers." :D

    Could not agree with you more!

    No, but she does on the rare occasion allow me to use it. I will probably not get one as I have a MBP that I can use.

    Must have apps are clash of clans... I don't know what else. Just find stuff that interest you.
