The Music app preinstalled on the iPad is pretty good, but some of us want one even better. This app steps in by offering an interface that is easier to use by touch.
It also comes with several free equalization settings that have been designed to maximize the audio output of certain headphones and speakers. The sound is tailored for each to provide the best sound possible.
There are quite a few optimizations available for many speakers and headphones available for in-app purchase.
This note-taking app takes advantage of text, handwriting and image capture for getting ideas onto the screen. It uses multiple panes to allow referring to outside sources while taking notes.
It is reminiscent of the Microsoft Courier project that unfortunately never made it to market.
This app isn't new but has recently gotten an interface facelift that makes it really great. You can follow all of your local sports teams in one place, with current news presented as an attractive news magazine.
It's the equivalent of a magazine like Sports Illustrated that only reports on the teams you care about.
