Keeping up with current events and finding interesting things to read is a great way to use the iPad. The popular apps like Flipboard and Zite are nice, but this app has a twist that makes following the news really cool.
While the app pulls news of interest from popular online sources, it also lets you connect to your Twitter account. This lets you pull news that is being read by the people you follow on Twitter. You click on a friend's Twitter avatar and instantly see the news articles that your friend is reading.
The news is presented in an attractive format that takes full advantage of the iPad display.
Watching movie trailers for new releases is great on the Retina Display. This app pulls all availabe movie trailers from the iTunes App Store and presents them in an attractive format that makes it easy to find the right trailer.
Spinning through the trailers is a simple operation, and watching the trailer as easy as tapping on the thumbnail.
The iPad is perfectly at home in the kitchen, and budding chefs need to check out this app. It presents recipes using an nice format, and even offers video showing exactly how to prepare each recipe.
The app comes with a set of recipes, and more can be purchased inside the app.
Given the size of apps with lots of video, this one intelligently leaves them out of the app. You simply click the download button if you wish to watch the video for a recipe.
