Recommended iPad applications

My new iPad arrived today and I asked my friends on Twitter which applications I should download.  Never people to disappoint they provided me with some great recommendations.  Here are some of the suggestions, some of which I have installed, some I have not yet:

  • @hillert noted “Pad-App-Empfehlungen: TwentyThree für Location http://bit.ly/bMDTJr und Pulse als RSS-Reader http://bit.ly/9HIfiu (Tipp an @JohnFMoore)”. Yes, I can read enough German (and translate helps) that I did download The Pulse and Twenty Three. Pulse does an interesting job of presenting news feeds (I think I will like this one) and Twenty Three pulls in location data from multiple networks (Foursquare, Twitter, GoWalla) to show you where your friends last were on a easy to use map view.
  • @ReduxOnline also noted “The Pulse if it’s still available !! Grab it if you can”.
  • @tnawara suggested “I highly recommend the NPR app. TweetDeck and Evernote are essential. Also like Digits, Penultimate and popplet. Wired is cool.”.I downloaded NPR, Evernote, Penultimate and Popplet.  Evernote is great, of course, and I like NPR as well.  Still trying to see if Penultimate and Popplet fit into my working style.
  • @Dale_Vile suggested “What are the must have iPad apps? << ‘Read it Later’, IM+, iAnnotate, ‘Good Reader’, ‘Metal Gear Solid’”.   I have not yet download these but will soon.
  • @AndreaMoe also pointed out  ”I’m liking penultimate and TweetDeck (even with it’s stability & uability flaws)… Oh, and I’m a weather channel geek too”
  • @coryb23 suggested that, for Twitter, “@Twitterrific is pretty solid too, but as far as paid #Twitter apps go, #twittelator is where it’s at.”
  • For RSS readers @jthake noted “ for rss reader, reeder is best. Enjoy ;-) “.
  • Also, @jnjosh suggested “Reeder, Instapaper, SimpleNote, Digital Post……”

With these great suggestions I will have many things to play with.  I hope this helps you out.
