good topic. I am interested in what people have to say as I will be picking one up in a few weeks.

And Scott, can we add not just apps but which ipad version you have and if its worth it to get the newest one out there.

I have used my buddys ipad 2 a few times but the camera is the worse camera I have ever seen. I would rather have a windup $5 camera from target and go get my pics developed than the ipad 2 camera.

I have an iPad 1 and use it almost daily. Not for work but for after work. I burn movies to AVI and watch them, play the odd game of mahjong etc., surf RR a LOT and use Skype and messaging over wifi. No facetime or vid Skype as mine and my wife's are both Ver 1. My wife said I was nuts when I bought mine but she tried mine for a while then wanted her own. Now she says we should get a pair of new Ipad 4's so we can facetime etc. I can see us getting them very soon... Not sure if I am so into the mini's but they would probably be good too....

Just Google "Must have Apps" for the ipad and you will have a tome of them come up...

Wow, how do you live without an ipad?! j/k

Must have apps....

Carpenter, excellent spirit level tool.

Calculator, any of em are ok.

Adobe ideas, take a pic and then put notes on it, easy to send as email etc.

Compass, obvious reasons, and useful for calibrating flight controls for the multirotor guys.

Noise sniffer, sound pressure level testing.

Flash light, pretty obvious uses, and it does strobe for a disco effect at home.

Star walk is cool if you like celestial stuff.

Celcius for local weather

Google earth.

Speedometer, for a heads up display in car.

IMAC pro, for imac sequences.

Tom tom or metroveiw for navigation.

Find my iphone for if you lose it or it gets stolen.

Marker slate for easy time stamping of video footage.

There are a ton more.

I have my ipad 4 with me most all of the time. I grocery shop using an app that is laid out exactly like the aisles in my grocery store...also my most used app is RCLogbook. If you like to log helicopter and airplane flights along with fuel or battery info plus lots of other stuff this is the R/C app for you. "Pages" and "Numbers" are great business apps and of course a game or two....maybe "Angry Birds" or "Solitaire". I've had two iPads at this point and would not want to be without one.

I do a lot of traveling for business and I am finding the ipad is more convenient (lighter, better battery life, easier) than my laptop. There are down sides too, but since my lectures go on a thumb drive and there are PC's everywhere I go, I do not miss the laptop.

That's like bying a Porche to go grocery shopping. You can watch Netflix on a Kindle Fire for $100.
