Demo-I hear Dropbox and some other cloud based services are better than iCloud?
Like stevejobsfan0123 - I use both DropBox and iCloud. I use the free accounts in both instances and they both have their pros and cons. Since I am using the free accounts of both - I can't complain! .
Once again, it depends on what you want to do. Get the free accounts for bot and see what you think works best for you.
If you want a really good web browser - download iCab Mobile .... and leave Safari buried on the last home screen on your iPad.
iCab Mobile is far superior to Safari in every way - IMO. It is not free, but it is one of the best $2.00 apps that I have downloaded.
The Weather Channel App is nice. I like HBO GO, ABC Player, CNN, USA Today and Watch ESPN, ESPN Score Center XL, NFL 2012 for TV, news and sports. HBO and ESPN require subscriptions to a cable provider but they are really great apps.
PhotoPad for iPad is a free photo editing app and it suits my simple needs very well. Kindle is great if you have an Amazon.com account.
There are so many really cool apps.... I even have the Sam's Club app. You just have to decide what you want to do on and with your iPad and start taking the plunge!!!
