Cool apps for the HP TouchPad with screenshots

Summary:There aren't a lot of apps available for the HP TouchPad, but these ten cool apps shouldn't be overlooked for the webOS tablet.

A common complaint made about the recently released HP TouchPad tablet is the lack of apps in the App Catalog. This is a legitimate complaint but there are some gems already available for those who spend some time looking through the selection. After using the HP TouchPad for a while I am finding it to be both a productive tool and a good medium for entertainment. I haven't tried games on the TouchPad, other than the free Angry Birds game, so this list of ten apps covers productivity tools and audio/ video entertainment. There is also a bonus look at a cool feature of one of the preinstalled apps on the TouchPad that I haven't seen on any other platform.
