Apple’s iPad is less than 24 hours away from being released in the wild. By this time tomorrow, a huge number of people will have an iPad in hand and frantically looking for new iPad-specific apps to put their new tablet through its paces.

Personally, I’m really excited about Game Table.

So, what iPad-specific apps are you looking forward to installing right away tomorrow? Let everyone know in the comments!

    I bought the iWork suite, and a downloaded a lot of free apps,
    The ones I guess I’ll be using a lot:

    • Marvel Comics(Comic Book Reader)
    • Twiterrific (Twitter Client and browser)
    • i-Journals (Note taking, web browsing and maps)
    • iBooks (Books from Apple and my own collection)
  2. First, 1Password

    Second, Wall Street Journal (I subscribe to both print & web with free iPhone)

    Third, Pandora

    Fourth, Slacker

    Fifth, Schzame

    Sixth, The Weather Channel

    Seventh, Woot Watch

    and useful iPad specific apps such as iBook when it’s available.

    Apparently I’m suffering from appAddiction.

    Today I spent $50 on iPad apps and I haven’t even ordered an iPad!!

    I’m waiting for 3G version obviously but still seems weird that I’m spending money for apps when I don’t even know when I’ll have money for the iPad. [yet]

    • Pages
    • Keynote
    • Words with Friends
    • Bento
    • Charadium
    • Labyrinth 2
    • Weatherbug Elite
    • Drawing Pad (for my 8 year old)

    Lots of freebies: The best being
    – Netflix
    – IMDB
    – Pandora

  4. I ordered a 3G iPad (and therefore wont get it for another month but..) I have already downloaded Numbers, Pages, Captain’s Log, Tweetdeck (for iPad), Sketchbook Pro, Worms HD and Weather HD.

    Seriously though, Zen Bound 2 looks great and Weather HD too (although it’s pure eye-candy) TweetDeck. Fingers crossed that PhotoFramePlus gets approved for tomorrow :)

  6. I’ll admit to having bought my first load of apps yesterday, so that I can sync the iPad when I get it and be totally ready to go with apps, music, and video. Here’s what I got:

    -Productivity: Keynote, Pages
    -Reading: Kindle (iPhone version), Marvel Comics app
    -Games: Scrabble, Secret of Monkey Island (iPhone version), Mirror’s Edge
    -Music: half-a-dozen music-making apps, some iPad and some iPhone
    -Entertainment: Netflix, NPR

    I’ll wait to download the iBooks app tomorrow so that I can test the app-download experience on the iPad itself.

  7. @CHILLIX Really? The first app you will install is your own, which isn’t even available yet? Come on.

    The app looks sick though. I tried to find it on the App Store.

  8. Daniel

    Definitely Netflix. It was a great move putting that on the iPad.

    I also got Pages, Wolfram|Alpha (just discovered the website, it’s amazing), and The Early Edition.

    Along with, of course, the freebies like ABC Player, NYT, Twitterrific, etc.
