After playing with it for about 3 months, downloading about 350 apps
I found I am not producing anything good, but killings lots of hrs exploring, new apps and appreciating them. So sold it this week.


Now I am going to buy ipad3 with the cash proceeds, if I am convinced that I can produce something good. Mostly educational, certificate course entirely done using ipad2 and results value add to my resume, or learn some languages at no cost and get a school certificate to add into my resume!.

Would love to hear from you if you have accomplished something value add, and that you think it has improved your resume.
[Productivity improvement, entertainment are not value add for me]

Hello there :)
Lol i use my iPad mostly to take college notes, study, sync all PDF that I have in my Mac, store the books that i need and more.

To improve productivity its a MUST to have, IMO, the following apps:

Any note app (I use Noteshelf), iStudiez (If you're still studying), Wolfram Alpha, GoodReader (Or any other PDF editor of your choice) and Dropbox to keep all sync. I don't know which area you are, but for my engineer course i also have Wolfram Calculus, Wolfram Physics, Formula MAX, Molecules and PSE HD (Periodic Table)

That's it, for me :D

Oh ok ok. I know that there are some programming apps. I have one called Codea, which is basically to create Games (maybe other stuffs, i really don't know, i'm using to incentivate myself to lern Lua, which is the language used in Codea.
There are others apps, but i really don't know. Good luck :)
