In fact, last May, I wrote about My 12 Favorite iPad Apps where I called out 12 of the bestapps for iPad so I thought Id revisit the list to see if my favorites have changed. As expected, mytop apps for iPad have evolved over time. For example, only three of the twelve iPad apps haveremained on my list for best apps for iPad including Kindle, Zinio and Mail.#12 Starting at #12, iBooks makes the best iPad app list. The one and only reason iBooks mademy iPad apps favorite list is because iBooks provides an excellent interface to store and readPDFs.Having used several PDF readers including the popular GoodReader for the iPad, I prefer the wayiBooks stores the PDFs showing the PDFs cover in the library view and the ability to sync viaiTunes or attached to an email that you open and send to the iBooks app and these features makeiBooks one of the best apps on iPad.There are a few features in iBooks I dont use including the fact iBooks provides access to ApplesiBookstore which allows you to download and read the latest books and classics. Additionally youcan make notes and highlight passages in your eBook and use AirPrint to print the PDF with yournotes included.#11 My next best app for iPad and latest obsession/time sink is Words for Friends HD. If you havenot heard of Word for Friends, you must be the only one! Words with Friends HD is a crosswordgame (think Scrabble) that is socially played against friends with a NewToy Inc account. Whilethere is an iPhone app for Words with Friends, the larger screen of the iPad allows better visionacross the entire board allowing me to smoke my foes!#10 The iPad app on my iPad favorite apps list is one of the best iPad apps for kids available andmy four year old daughters favorite iPad app. DressUpBaby provides an intuitive and simpleinterface for my four year old daughter using cute characters and funky clothes and accessories. Irandomly receive outfits emailed from my daughter using the camera function on one of her topapps for iPad.#9 Next on my list of iPad best apps is also one of my iPad productivity apps. Remoter is a VNC(Virtual Network Computing) client for the iPad that provides the ability to virtually control yourdesktop over the network from your iPad. Ive used the client to control both Windows and Macmachines, but VNC will also work with various UNIX flavors. This app has saved me too manytimes while Im out but needed something from work making this one of my best iPad apps.
#8 Whistle turns my iPad into a networked conference phone making this app high on my bestapps for iPad. I use Whistle as a client for an Asterix PBX, a 3rd party SIP service) that allows meto make a call from the "office" anywhere that I have an Internet connection. Whistle providesintegration with my Contacts (which is synced with Googles cloud) and with the latest iOS loaded Ican continue Whistle calls in the background as I continue to use the iPad. Speakerphone worksamazingly, but Whistle also supports the Apple Headphones allowing you to answer calls with thecenter button. This app enables business and is one of my top productivity apps for iPad providinga business tool to work virtually.#7 Kindle constantly makes everyones best iPad apps list and is no exception for the Geeksfavorite apps for iPad.

The Evernote iPad app provides my primary interface to takeand view notes, including voice notes, while Im not in my home office. Evernote thenautomatically syncs with the cloud-based service so you can view the notes on the iPad, one ofthe desktop Evernote applications, or the web. The Evernote app was inducted into the Apple"App Hall of Fame", on the NY Times "Top 10 Must-Have Apps" list and has been the winner ofthe Best Mobile App Award from TechCrunch, Mashable and the Webbys and, in my opinion, oneof the best apps on iPad.#4 One of the included apps, the Calendar app, is one of my most used and therefore one of myiPad favorite apps.
