BEST iPad app you've downloaded?
What is the single best iPhone app you have ever downloaded? Don't pick a stock app, but one that you had to download from the App Store. I can be free though.
I don't necessarily mean most used, just the one you think is best. You don't necessarily use your best installed app the most. Don't give me two! I wan't you to choose just ONE!
Mine is Noteshelf. I use it regularly to help my students with math questions over email and to give them solutions to quizzes and tests. It helps me be a better teacher. That's why it's the best for me.

I'd say Logmein. It's the most important and what really allows me to sub my ipad for a laptop most of the time.
Twitter, facebook, and all that are good too i guess, but i get those on iphone. I don't really use ipad a lot for the social stuff.
I almost picked comic zeal. I'm a big comics reader.

This is tough. I'm gonna go with Pulse for both iPhone and iPad. I like Flipboard but prefer getting news and rss on Pulse. I love the interface and how it syncs across devices and it's the one app that I use almost every day even when I had an android phone.

It's a tie between Flipboard, Noteshelf, and Splashtop. Flipboard is a great way to consume news on the iPad as well as all my social streams and twitter hash tags. I prefer to browse Facebook and linked in via Flipboard than their specific apps.
Noteshelf has allowed me to go completely paperless at work. Combined with a bamboo stylus and I can do everything on my iPad. I now leave my notebook, laptop, and pens in the office and just take my iPad to and from home, to meetings, etc.
Splashtop has allowed me to ditch my laptop and leave in the office. Being able to access it directly via my iPad has transformed how I work. When I need full blown MS Office applications, they are just a stream away. And simple tasks like replying to an email inline with an attachment via Outlook means no more clunky workarounds on the iPad. Knowing that I can access my laptop on the go if I need to without having to lug that beast (it's a Thinkpad) really is a back saver.
So I cheated and gave three, but these have changed how I do my job. Crazy good stuff.

Splashtop is the best, hands down. Increases the usefulness and practicality of the iPad ten-fold.
Air Video is probably a close second...Reminding people that "your" ≠ "you're"...

I'm addicted to EA's "The Game of Life" You've GOT to get the HD ipad version. Another awesome program is PlayOn, which lets you access Netflix and Hulu free (you don't need to subscribe to Plus), and MANY flash based streaming sites, ABC, Fox, Crackle, etc I KNOW the ipad has apps for many of these, BUT it's great having them all in one place, getting the free hulu, and the flash based sites. You must subscribe to PlayOn, but in my opinion it's well worth it!Rich C. PK's BlackBerry Help Thread
