This is a growing list. I will be updating this from time to time. The prices shown are the prices at the time I created the list. Should you want to add a game to the list feel free to leave a comment below. I will add it asap. Hope you enjoy.
1. Pages ($9.99) this is an awesome word processing application. It allows you to add shapes tables, charts, and other media with a simple click or tap. The spurious sampled use. You can copy all of your documents if pages into iTunes, iDisk, and WebDav. This is a Must have application if you plan to do any type of word processing on the ipad.
2. Notes Plus(1.99) To need a note taking application this is my favorite. It allows you to type or write the notes. You can also record the lecture if you need to. It can be synced with itunes, dropbox, and google docs.
3. DropBox(Free) is a must have for several reasons. The best thing about dropbox is you always have your document with you if you need it. Just upload whatever you want into dropbox and access it from any web location. The only negative thing about dropbox is they only give you two gigs. You can buy more if you need it. I really haven’t needed anymore storage.
4. BoxNet(Free) with the release of icloud, storage became a major issue. Boxnet has offered 50 gigs of free space for life. That’s a great deal. If you haven’t claimed your sstorage I would. I don’t believe this will last long.
5. AppAdvice($1.99) I use this application everyday. This is the best site I have found to stay up to date on the latest applications being released.
6. ChickenBalls($1.99) If you enjoy Angry Birds you will enjoy CB. It’s based on the same principal as AB. I find I like it a little more personally. I am not a hard core gamer. I do enjoy a select few and this is one of those chosen few.
