Though we have smart phones, some useful and daily need apps we can’t find. It is apple iPad it allows you to find more free apps those will very helpful in your life such as news, entertainment, Photoshop, comics and e-books. Surely the following iPad will felicitate in all forms of your life.
Most of the free iPad weather apps refuse to believe that the UK has any weather so AccuWeather gets props for merely working. Happily, AccuWeatheralso proves to be a decent – if quirky – weather app. The interface is odd (but fun) and there’s a ‘lifestyle’ page that determines how your current local conditions might affect over 20 activities, including dog-walking and stargazing.
2. Adobe Ideas 1.0 for iPad
Adobe Ideas 1.0 for iPad is a digital sketchpad that offers simple vector-based drawing tools and works nicely as a standalone app for jotting down creative ideas or as a companion to Adobe Illustrator. Obviously, user can trace over photos, email drawings as PDFs and avoid worrying about mistakes, because there’s a 50-level undo.
3. Air Video Free
Despite naysayers whining about the iPad screen’s 4:3 aspect ratio, it’s a decent device for watching video, although it lacks storage for housing large video collections. Air Video enables you to stream video (converting it on-the-fly, if necessary) from your Mac or PC. The main limitation of the free version is that it only shows a few items (randomly selected) from each folder or playlist.
Beatwave is a simplified Tenori-On-style synth which enables you to rapidly build pleasing melodies by prodding a grid. Multiple layers and various instruments provide scope for complex compositions, and you can save sessions or, handily, store and share compositions via email. You can also buy more instruments via in-app purchases.
With an eye-searing white-and-orange-on-black color scheme that’s a little like being repeatedly punched in the eyes, Bloomberg isn’t an app you’ll want to spend all day staring at. However, for business news, stocks and major currency rates, it’s a usable and efficient app.
On the iPhone, Comics is an innovative app, but zooming each panel and constantly rotating your device gets old fast. By contrast, the iPad’s screen is big enough to display an entire page without the need to zoom or scroll. And with dozens of free comics available via the bundled store, comic book fans should lap this app up.
7. Dictionary.com – Dictionary & Thesaurus – For iPad
We approached Dictionary with skepticism, since most free dictionary apps are sluggish interfaces to websites. That’s certainly what this looks like, but it works offline, providing speedy access to over a million words and 90,000 thesaurus entries. The app’s search is also reassuringly fast
8. Drop box (universal)
Drop box is a service for syncing documents across multiple devices. The iPad client works like the iPhone one (hardly surprising, since this is a universal app), enabling you to preview many file types and store those marked as favorites locally.
9. Ever note
It is similar to Drop box, Ever note works the same way on the iPad as it does on the iPhone. It benefits from the iPad’s larger screen, which enables you to see and navigate your stored snippets more easily.
10. Fiddler RSS Reader for iPad
Fiddler RSS Reader for iPad is fairly basic as RSS readers go, but once you’ve pointed it at your Google Reader account it’s efficient, stores text offline, enables you to browse by feed and has a built-in browser so you’re not booted to Safari if you want to visit a link. As with many iPad apps, you get a full-screen view in portrait mode.
Going head-to-head with evoke, iBooks is a decent e-book reader, backed by the iBookstore. As you’d expect from Apple, the interface is polished and on downloading the app you get a free copy of Winnie the Pooh.
12. Movies by Flixter
It is for film lovers, Movies figures out where you are and tells you what’s showing in your lterritory cinemas – or you can pick a film and it’ll tell you where and when it’s on. The app is functionally identical on iPad and iPhone, but again the extra screen space improves the experience.
Effectively a souped-up digital notepad, PaperDesk Lite for iPad enables you to combine typed words, doodle and audio recordings in user-defined notebooks. Pages can be emailed. Although be mindful that this free version restricts you to three pages per notebook.
14. PCalc Lite
The lack of a built-in iPad calculator doesn’t bother us (in fact, we’d love to replace the iPhone Calculator app with PCalc Lite as well). This app is usable and feature-rich – and if you end up wanting more, in-app purchases enable you to bolt on extras from the full PCalc.
15. Twitterrific for iPad
The iPad version of Twitterrific reportedly marks a new beginning for the app, which the developers think has become too complicated on iPhones. On iPad, things are more bare-bones, but this ensures Twitterrific is a simple, good-looking and usable Twitter client.
16. Wikipanion for iPad
The Wikipedia website works fine in Safari for iPad, but devoted apps make navigating the site simpler and faster. We went back and forth between Simplepedia and Wikipanion, eventually plumping for the latter, largely due to its efficient two-pane landscape view with excellent bookmarking and history access.
Wallpaper apps litter the App Store, but are mostly dull, offering photos of brick walls or bored animals. It is a loopy art tool, enabling you to choose a background and spray all manner of shapes around. Compositions can be well-tuned by dragging objects, and then shared to Flickr, Twitter or your device’s Photos app.
18. Google Earth
It’s not the smartest app in the world, and it lacks some elements from the desktop, but Google Earth is nonetheless a joy on the iPad. Touch gestures are an intuitive means of swooping around the planet, and the optional layers enable you to display as much or as little ancillary information as you wish.
19. Explore Flickr
Explore Flickr provides an engaging way to discover new photography. On launch, your iPad screen fills with a grid of thumbnails, drawn from Flickr.com’s top daily images. Tap one to view or just leave the app lazily updating while your iPad charges in its dock.
20. BBC News
The BBC’s website still reliant on Flash video, this BBC News app now finally available in the UK – provides access to latest stories, including video elements. Categories can be rearranged, stories can be shared and the app’s layout adjusts to portrait and landscape orientations.
21. TV Guide for iPad
It’s a TV Guide for iPad allows the website’s search and the iPhone version’s ability to flag upcoming shows with alarms, but otherwise this is a first-rate TV guide for UK viewers. The interface is silky smooth, and you can easily omit channels you don’t watch.
22. Adobe Photoshop Express
With people regularly moaning about bloat in Adobe’s desktop applications, it’s great to see the giant create something as focused and usable as Adobe Photoshop Express. Its toolset is strictly for basic edits (crop, straighten, rotate, flip, levels and lighting adjustments), and applying a few effects, but the app is fast, stable and extremely useable. Top marks.
23. App Shopper
Prices on the App Store go up and down and Apple’s own wish-list mechanics leave a lot to be desired. You’re better off using App Shopper, which lists bargain apps and also enables you to compile a wish-list and be notified when an item drops in price.
24. Find my iPhone
Surprisingly freed by Apple from the shackles of the paid version of Mobile Me, many users rapidly discovered they needed a 2010 device to sign up to Find my iPhone. Luckily, the iPad is a 2010 device, so it can be used to create an account; you can then add older iOS devices to keep an eye on where they are.
25. Friendly for Facebook
Since Facebook doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to update its great iPhone app for the iPad, download Friendly. Its main aim is speed – despite some oddball interface elements here and there, Friendly’s mostly, well, friendly. It also supports multiple accounts, offers customizable colors, and while it’s ad-supported, the ads aren’t obtrusive.
It’s a bit of a love-it-or-hate-it app, but Twitter showcases some breathtaking UI innovation; if user can deal with its unique way of presenting timelines and join content, you’ll find it an efficient and intuitive means of using Twitter.
27. Sky News for iPad
By offering ‘three views on the news’, Sky News for iPad aims to work something a bit different to most video-based news apps. User can get a timeline of recent stories, a prioritized scrollable grid of top stories and ‘rewind able’ live coverage. It’s all tactile and usable, and it has Airplay support.
28. LoopJ Interactive DJ Station
LoopJ is a loop-based DJ-style tool with two virtual decks. Choose a deck, position the cross fader accordingly, tap play and then prod loops to cue them up. It’s less various than Looptastic but more immediate, although getting your own music into the app is a chore, so stick with using it as a fun audio.
29. Dragon Dictation
There’s always something slightly spooky about voice recognition software, as if Sky net’s listening in or something, but such tools had for years been out of most people’s reach. Dragon Dictation is free for iOS. It’s eerily accurate, trainable and, despite the dev recommending you use an external microphone, the app works fine with the iPad’s built-in one.
30. Classical Guitar
This freebee virtual guitar is one of Apple’s impressive GarageBand for iPad. With this Classical Guitar, one can sound, pick strings and use a sliding. Importantly, though, you can create user-defined chord sets, making this a useful app for writing basic overview songs.
