This list is actually much shorter because I have realized that to be perfectly honest, the iPad is more of a toy than a tool. Hampered by poor PowerPoint support (and this despite Keynote which I have tried), it is only a backup email platform for me. So besides Mail, I use The Guardian Eyewitness for their fantastic photos, Accuweather because it tends to be accurate (duh!) and it is actually pretty to look at, MyKeePass for the same reasons I mentioned yesterday, Popplet (although I have found it less and less practical), SportsTap for following football and my Gators in particular, and VLC for watching movies.
My biggest disappointments have been Dropbox/2Screens/GoodReader/Box.net/Quickoffice Connect because all touted PowerPoint support and none deliver – at least my PowerPoints get hosed up fonts and colors and icons are misplaced and miscolored. Argh.
Oops, I forgot two other winners: Flipboard and Drawing Pad. The first is pretty nice for browsing through Facebook/Twitter and lots of other RSS-type feeds in a web-oriented manner. Drawing Pad is my kid’s favorite because of the extensive sticker collection.
So am I running out for an iPad2? Not yet. Either I’ll go the US-Store-refurbished route or I’ll wait for the iPad3.
