My Top 5 Favourite iPad Apps At the Moment

by on April 10th, 2010

I got my iPad early last week and I’ve been putting this puppy to the test. It’s a gorgeous device and I’ll have my review up shortly. In the meantime, if you just picked up an iPad from the USA (hopefully Canada will get the iPad on April 24th), here are some of my favourite apps so far (in no particular order) you should download:

1. The Guardian Eyewitness – this app lets you view some breathtaking news photography taken all over the world. A partnership with Canon also offers ‘tips’ on how the photographer went about composing their shot.

2. USA Today – the layout of this newspaper app is awesome. Feels like holding a real newspaper when the iPad is in your hands.

3. Epicurious – this is another gem in the iPad App Store and is free to boot. 1000′s of recipes at your fingertips in an easy to navigate format. Who wants to bake me some cookies??

4. SkyGrid – want to find the ‘hottest’ news that’s trending? SkyGrid will show you the goods you’re looking for. Taking advantage of the latest two column layout, you can quickly skim through the latest news topics on the net.

5. Weather HD – this was one of the first apps I purchased based on the recommendation of a friend. With its crystal clear animations, it’s a fun way of checking the weather forecast and really shows off the iPhone’s awesome LCD screen.

Other notables: Tweetdeck, Yahoo! Entertainment, Marvel, NASDAQ.

    Thinking about the weather HD too but I hope they have updates to show you what the 5 day forecast would be as well or it's in it already and i'm just not seeing example of it?

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

    I'm having trouble getting iTunes to recognize the iPad as IPAD and iTunes think it's an iPhone, so essentically, it wouldn't install any iPad specific apps on my iPad. Anyone having this same problem and how to solve it?

    I restore it factory once and it work, but then after I sync my iPhone with iTunes the next day, it thinks my iPad as an iPhone again in iTunes. Restore the second time does not work anymore. :(

    Thank you so so much! I need a solution desperatly!!!

    You do mean April 24th for the release of the iPad in Canada and not, god forbid, August 24th as stated in your post? Or do you know something that we don't know.

    That happened to me, too, the first time I connected to iTunes. After puzzling about it for awhile and unsuccessfully trying this and that, I disconnected and used the iPad for a couple of days. When I finally decided to reconnect to iTunes to try to resolve that issue, it has resolved itself. The iPad appears as an iPad with all the iPad apps recognized and positioned correctly. I wasn't aware of having done anything special that would account for the different result.

    I restore one more time and now it works again with the proper iPad in iTunes. Seems like a bug.

  • Wuju

    Try to sync again, but now it's back to thinking it's an iPhone. So I wouldn't syn for now until this is fixed.
