Favorite iPad Apps?

I wanted an iPad before I knew I wanted an iPad. It was probably the first product from Apple that I purchased without hesitation – not because I needed one, but because the iPad was so radically different from anything else in the industry that I was drawn to it (magnetically, perhaps).

Years later, I’m sitting on top of hundreds of installed iPad applications. I get many of them for free not because I’m reviewing them, but because I watch for iPad software discounts to float across my social media radar. I tend to share and reshare the good ones, too.

The community constantly asks me: what are my favorite iPad apps? I don’t even know if I have a favorite iPad app (singular)! There are just so many of ’em out there, and each one of those applications does a great job independent of any other iPad app. That’s what makes the iPad work, ya know? It’s not some kind of complex computing tool that allows you to see dozens of open programs at any given time. No, instead, the iPad excels at providing a near-perfect platform for today’s various needs.

Each iPad app has the potential of being my favorite app – depending on what it is that I’m wanting to do. In many cases, I can likely find an app that will do what I’d like to have done. Doesn’t that make it a favorite for the task at hand? I believe so.

Mind you, I don’t use every single iPad app every single day. I don’t even use a single app regularly (beyond the web browser and email clients)! I know: you still want to know what I’m using on my own iPad this year. It’s for that reason we decided to do a live walkthrough via YouTube earlier this week (in conjunction with an iPad 2 giveaway, courtesy of a sponsor):

By the time the third-generation iPad rolls off the assembly lines and into my hands, I’m sure I’ll have hundreds more apps to show you. Maybe we’ll do this again next year? If you have the patience to sit through this hour-long video iPad tour and you noticed I have a few missing apps, please make your Favorite recommendations in the comments thread.

Win an Optimus Maximus Keyboard by Asking and Answering Questions

What questions could you ask? Which questions will you answer? The sky is the limit for all of those who participate. The first one to attain 100,000 karma points (legitimately – cheaters are disqualified) will get this Optimus Maximus keyboard.

In order to give our new Lockergnome.net site a proper launch, we’ve decided to do a giveaway. The site is now a question and answer site where you will earn karma points simply by asking questions, voting on the questions others have answered and answering questions you find interesting. If you flag questions with a thumbs up or thumbs down, you’ll also gain more karma.

The more karma you gain, the more you can do on the site. Once you reach a certain level, you’ll be able to delete trash answers and even edit questions when someone forgets their PUGS. You’ll need to be careful when doing those things, though. You don’t want to get too big for your britches and earn a bad rep in the community. Doing so will get you kicked out faster than you can try to spell Optimus Maximus.

As of the writing of this post, there are now over 4000 questions and more than 20,000 answers! That is a lot of participation going on. Don’t miss out on all of the fun. Please remember to ask your questions as specifically as you can. Also, always give the most specific answers possible.
