When you think of games you can't miss Angry Birds, and the latest version is the best of the series by far. The birds move to space in Angry Birds Space, and the addition of multiple gravity wells make it the toughest version to date.
The gameplay requires careful thought, more so than past versions, and the game makes passing time on the iPad a real joy.
$2.99, with additional levels available through in-app purchase for $0.99.
When you think of video calls on the iPad, the first thing that comes to mind is Facetime. That's a good app, but Skype is the standard by which video calls are measured. Skype on the iPad is a great way to communicate with coworkers and family members, and I use it daily.
The quality of the video and audio are outstanding using Skype on the iPad, and it has become my preferred method to use Skype.

There is nothing like GarageBand on other tablets, and it's great for musicians and wannabes. The app makes it possible to create sophisticated compositions on the fly, and even simple goofing off can produce amazing results.
It's like having a virtual orchestra at your command, and a bargain.
