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.
The official Twitter app for the iPad is good, but Tweetbot is the best there is. The clean interface takes full advantage of the touch interface on the iPad, and keeping up with Twitter is a thing of beauty.
The latest version of Tweetbot keeps the Twitter timeline synced between the iPhone and iPad using iCloud.
