Below is the list of current apps I have on my iPad (in no particular order):

  • iBooks – I like the additional features and ease of purchase, but the reading experience is nicer on the kindle app.
  • Kindle – I like the reading experience, perhaps due to its cleanliness and lack of ‘gimmicks’ that iBooks uses like the fake pages. However, the purchasing process is painful.
  • Instapaper – Great app to read longer articles later. I usually see the article in an email on my Mac and then use Instapaper to read it later.
  • Reeder – Great app for Google Reader. I use this more than Google Reader on the web!
  • Atomic Web – An alternative browser with tabbed browsing, what Safari should be, but can only do three tabs before memory runs low.
  • TED – To watch inspiring speeches
  • Atomic Clock – To feed my OCD time setting compulsions.
  • Bloomberg – better than the FT app because the info is free…
  • Flipboard – I liked it quite a bit at the start as a way of visualizing the news, but after a while you realize that it doesn’t weigh things quite in a logical way leaving important things smaller and less important things large…
  • Twitter
  • Friendly – Facebook ‘app’ that works reasonably well.
  • IM+ – Instant messaging app, good enough.
  • DocsToGo – Great app to see your email attachments, also allows you to save stuff to DropBox. Recommended must have.
  • Dropbox – App for the cloud storage system.
  • PlainText – A simple text editor that saves file to Dropbox.
  • Remote – Apple’s remote, to control the Apple TV or any Apple library
  • PCalc Lite – Calculator
  • Currency – Currency calculator
  • Digits Lite – Another calculator that’s got a ticker tape.
  • Bible – Yup, the bible.
  • Bicycle Buyer – a magazine, but takes for ever to download new volumes.. kind of annoying so I stopped using it.
  • Ultralingua – Translator
  • iDisk – Apple’s Dropbox but not as good.
  • NPR – News app.
  • Ocado – To buy groceries
  • OpenTable – When I’m feeling too lazy to buy groceries, to find a restaurant.
  • Planets – Good astronomy app
  • TripAdvisor – To come up with fantasy itineraries for trips I’ll probably not take.
  • Spotify – Just in case my iPhone’s battery life is dying..
  • Spotifinder – to remote control Spotify on my Mac, but not so good… don’t know if I’d like to recommend it, but only option at the moment.
  • Find iPhone – as the name implies.
  • eBay – as the name implies.
  • WordPress – blog editor
  • ShopShop – Shopping list input.. really good. I highly recommend it. If you have two people that buy groceries, you can write up a list, email it, and it shows up on the other person’s app!
  • VLC – I am not using it yet…
  • Glow Hockey – Game that I always lose at. Thus I don’t like it.
  • WeatherBug – To only reassure me that it will rain.
  • shrinkURL – URL shrinking app
  • Waitrose – more grocery shopping.

  • TwitterFall – to follow a subject on Twitter
  • Units – Units converter
  • TouchTerm – SSH
  • Speed Test – To see how fast the connection I’m on
  • Sol – to see how little sun we get in the UK.. argh.
  • Vault – to store information

  • Skype – to call mom
  • Standard Tube – UK tube map
  • Entrepreneur (Magazine)
  • PayPal
  • nook – another book reader. I have yet to buy a book on it, but just in case.
  • AroundMe – location based searching
  • Ping Lite – network testing
  • Train Times – to find national train times
  • Magic8Ball – when you just need to go with the luck of the draw
  • London Cycle – to find the nearest boris bike
  • HulloMail – best voicemail app I’m using
  • GuitarToolkit – Guitar tuner
  • GraphCalc – replaced my ti-82
  • Foursquare – to check in… don’t know why.
  • How To Cook Everything Essentials – to guide me to cook.
  • Amazon Windowshop (.com) – to manage my wishlist
  • Amazon (UK) – the same, but in the UK
  • LinkedIn

  • EuroSport Player – to see video, but wish they had the HD version
  • Email Contact – to send a contact in simple text via email
  • Dual Level – for when I need to level something
  • BA – British Airways app
  • Warfare Inc. – great game for the iPhone, looks pixed on the iPad, but surprisingly playable and quite fun networked.
  • neu.Notes – to doodle on the iPad

  • FriendSheep – another non-inspiring game
  • HTML5 Guide – as the name implies
  • CSS Reference – ditto
  • JsAnywhere – a javascript interpreter, handy.
  • Muji Calendar – a simple and clean Google calendar app, highly recommended..
