Google+ for iPad
Like the app for the Nexus 7 previously mentioned, the Google+ app is also great on the iPad mini. The same graphical interface is present, and it is a joy to use the network with this app.
Angry Birds Star Wars for iPad
It's Angry Birds and Star Wars. This is the best of the Angry Birds franchise and playing it on the iPad mini is wonderful. The Star Wars theme is particularly well done and gameplay is a hoot.
Be careful when you start playing this game as you may lose far more time than intended.
Google Maps for iPad
Apple made a mess of things by replacing Google Maps with its own flawed Maps app. Google has recently released its familiar Google Maps for iOS and it's a must-have for iPad mini owners.
While it's technically an iPhone app it also works well on the iPad mini with a full iPad version coming soon according to Google. It's complete with turn-by-turn nagivation to get you where you need to be.
