MUST HAVE iPad Apps!
August 31, 2010 § 6 Comments
For the last 3 months I have been testing many Apps for the iPad. Below see my list of MUST HAVE apps.:
1. Flipboard (Free): This is without doubt the iPad killer app! Your Flipboard is a fast, beautiful way to flip through news, photos and updates your friends are sharing on Facebook and Twitter. And it’s an incredible place to discover fresh content from around the Twittersphere. Flipboard is the world’s first social magazine! Watch video.
2. Reeder (3,99€): Best RSS reader out there! It syncs with your Google RSS account!
4. Dropbox (Free): Keep all your files in the Cloud that you want to have access from anywhere, anytime!
5. iAnnotate (7,99€): iAnnotate is both an elegant PDF reader and a powerful annotation tool that finally lets you work with your PDFs. You can open documents from email, sign and send out contracts, enter notes for edits, sketch diagrams, copy text, and add highlights or underline with the drag of a finger!
6. Kindle (Free): Read, make notes, bookmark, highlight, see what other have highlighted, sync with ALL your devices (incl PC and MAC) and purchase books via Amazon. Almost all eBooks can be found here. See my books and samples (my waiting list):
7. iBooks (Free): If you haven’t installed yet, you have to do it! its free! The user interface is much better than that of the Kindle. The only drawback is that is has not the social feature the kindle has. Also, if you manage different iTunes account, it can be a hassle if you are syncing different devices. Only for iPad devices and not available for PC or MAC. I preffer to read on iBooks, but unfortunately not all books I want are available. See my books and samples (my waiting lists):
8. Pages (7,99€): Pages is the App I use to talk notes. I can edit from here like a normal processor. If you have the iPad Dock with Keyboard, you are going to love writing in Pages. Pages can open and export .doc documents!
9. Keynote (7,99€): Great app interface! You can really make a professional presentation with this App (much better than using Powerpoint!). Keynote can upon powerpoint presentations. Unfortunately, it can not export to powerpoint yet…only to PDF.
10. Wikipanion (Free): Great to search content in Wikipedia. You can save articles as bookmarks and create folders to organize your search content. I am testing also Discover (Free) which are great Apps to read Wikipedia articles, but somehow Wikipanion is still my best choice.
11. DocstoGo (11,99€): Access to all you Microsoft Files and be able to edit them! You can link your account with Dropbox, so all your docs will be update! Now you see why you don’t need an USB port? There is an alternative to this App which is looks much better (which I haven’t tested yet) called Quickoffice (1,99€).
12. Twitterrific (Free): This a great Twitter App to manage what you follow and see all your Tweets.
UPDATE (2.09.2010): today was released the official Twitter app for iPad. This App is great and has already replace Twitterrific from my main homepage! Twitter for iPad is a MOST HAVE app!
13. iThoughts HD (5,99€): Great App to draw Mindmaps. This can be accessed and uploaded to a dropbox account. Can also export to PDF, mindjet manager and other formats!
