Disappointed in iPad Apps
Part of my reasoning for buying the iPad was the hope that native iPad apps would change the computing experience. With the iWork Apps, MLB at Bat 2010, ESPN Scorecenter, Wall Street Journal, Netflix, and NY Times, I was very excited for the potential of development on the iPad as well as the current selection of apps at launch.
Since I purchased the iPad, it has felt as though there has been little to no exciting apps that have been released since the original launch. Maybe it is just me, but I do feel that the selection is pretty poor. Yes, Apple advertises that they have "X" amount of apps available for the iPad, but they are also skewing some of these numbers by including 40 different versions of the same app in different languages. A little misleading. Also, some apps are simply books, which I don't consider an App.
I am still waiting on apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Texas Hold'em by Apple (come on Apple, this should be easy). I am also hoping for EA to release their sports titles on the iPad as well.
Anybody else feel that the app selection for the iPad is pretty weak? Are developers afraid to put time and effort behind the iPad?
