    Flipboard. Best rss/online newspaper I've ever used. It's replaced Pulse for me, which I used on my iPhone.

    One that you can't get anymore without jail breaking is VLC, but I got a universal app before they pulled it so I'm super happy about that.

    Best game for me so far is Aralon. I love console style RPGs and this one is pitch perfect.

    I also use iBooks religiously. Having my triple tap homepage reverse colors makes reading easier longterm on my iPad.

    Flipboard, Dropbox, Air Video, Photogene, a bunch of games, etc, I'm probably forgetting a few.

    Don't OPlayer and Cinexplayer work better? That was my finding anyway.

    VLC was free, and plays anything I've thrown at it yet, so no complaints. I'm curious if the Curia version is just as good.

    How does this work? Do you have to purchase it every season or is it one time purchase?

    The app is only $15... You get access the the pitch-by-pitch virtual gamecast, and the radio broadcast (home or away team). If you want to watch it live it's either $120 for MLB.TV Premium or $100 for MLB.TV Standard. However, for the month of April, MLB.TV (premium I think) is free with the purchase of the iPad app.

    For MLB, you have to pay $99 (0r $129 for premium) and then ANOTHER $15 to play it on the iPad (that's what stinks!).

    http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/subscriptions/index.jsp?product=mlbtv&affiliateId=MLBTVREDIRECT

    They have a variety of devices you can use your $99 service on for free (watching it on PS3 works great!). I did buy it for the ipad, for when I travel (often), and it does look great as well.

    Edit: Apparently it takes me too long to type! Someone else answered it already.

    $15 gets game updates, standings and latest news on every team. For most, that is enough. Pay extra for live audio and video.

    Remote
    Pages
    Evernote
    Kindle
    Engadget
    TWC MAX+
    PS express - maybe a real version of photoshop some day?

    Atomic browser. Way better than Safari in my opinion. Just downloaded it an hour ago and it really does a great job mimicking the desktop experience of browsing. Well worth $0.99.

    Mercury browser is also very good, I actually prefer it to Atomic.

    Yes, except it crashes randomly. Safari almost never does. That alone makes Safari better for me.

    Zite is my new favorite app by far.
    Flipboard is also awesome, especially if you're into social media.

    I love the Hulu app, but you have to pay monthly.

    Another vote for ZITE.

    Another than the usuals like Angry Birds HD, Weather Network HD and Vevo HD. I don't have any to recommend.
