10 Best Free Apps for the iPad

by Admin on September 15, 2010

While the Apple iPad itself can cost a small fortune to interested parties, there are still many free applications that allow owners who have caved to enjoy their new toy, all without having to spend another small fortune. These are ten of the most popular and useful ones.

  1. Marvel Reader: Whether you love the memories of reading old comic books or you want to get into the old fad, this free application allows you to view comics digitally in high resolution, making them look great.
  2. Epicurious: Folks interested in cooking will be able to enjoy this application, which allows them to search for recipes, complete with detailed ingredients and great looking pictures. You can keep the iPad nearby so you don’t need to travel back and forth to the computer.
  3. Adobe Ideas: This is a digital sketchbook, allowing you to make sketches onto your iPad and send them off to Photoshop or Illustrator for additional editing.
  4. Shazam: Just about everybody has had to deal with hearing a song and not knowing the artist. This app can hear the song and identify it simply, allowing you to purchase it immediately afterward if you wish.
  5. Tweetdeck: This application offers convenient columns presenting recent tweets, recent messages and a list of people you are following.
  6. AIM for iPad: As the name suggests, this puts the commonly used AOL Instant Messenger onto the iPad. With the larger iPad screen, you can see your current conversations, your buddy list and all of your active conversations in the same window.
  7. Evernote: This application is great for getting organized. It helps keep track of information by allowing you to include notes while you are on the go. An update to this application will include inking, which will allow you to write your notes directly, taking less time to stay organized and offering a more fluid feel.
  8. Box.net: After obtaining a free Box.net account, you can collaborate and share many different kinds of files, which effectively makes it a great application for folks in need of collaborating on projects and documents, such as some employees and students. Files stored on the Box.net account can be accessed by the users, allowing them to pull up a stored Excel spreadsheet or a PowerPoint file right from their iPad.
  9. Weather Channel Max: This is a very useful tool if you need to know the weather, whether it is now, for the next three days, or as far as the next ten days in advance, such as if you are planning an outdoor event. Other than your local forecast, you will have access to traffic cameras, weather information and satellite information through this free iPad application. There is no other application to get if you consider yourself to be something of a meteorologist.
  10. ABC Player: Watch your favorite shows that air on ABC. Rather than having to shell out the three dollars that it costs to view the shows in high definition, you can watch Desperate Housewives or Lost for free, provided the episode is currently being hosted on the official ABC website.
