Okay, okay, I admit it, I was one of those guys that bought himself an iPad during OOW and I thought maybe it’s cool to share some thoughts on those iPad apps that are currently on my iPad, after things have settled down a bit regarding the downloading, install, try-outs and deleting (zillion of times) most of those apps again and again and… Which of those apps are still on my pad and worth maybe a tryout…? Some I have bought, some are for free. Let’s have a look and I hope you enjoy the line up…

Current Setup

Currently I have setup my screens in multiple sections:

  • Main Screen
  • Social apps
  • Music and …
  • Games
  • Utilities
  • iWorks and alike

You could discuss if they are really belonging in those sections but currently those screens feel okay for me and that’s what counts.

Main Screen

Not that much exciting stuff here. Worth mentioning is the WordPress app that I can use to update, write and check my wordpress blog sites I post to. Twitterrific is a twitter app that I installed because my default one, the one that I like most, Tweetdeck, crashed initially to many times. Nowadays Tweetdeck is stable but lacks some functionality that I have on my desktop machines. Mentioning “lack”; The WordPress app doesn’t have the statistics tab, that his alternatives have for Windows or Android, because this page makes use of flash and being on a Apple environment, that kind of stuff doesn’t work anymore…

“Timezones” isn’t actually a app, but a HTML5 site saved on the “desktop”, which is very useful site really to quickly check timezones and avoids me calling people in the States while they just went to sleep.

WeatherProHD is a very extensive weather app. If I really need it, I don’t know, but it is really beatifully crafted, but you will have to pay for it.
