40 Useful iPad Apps With Beautiful Interfaces

If you have an iPad, you are probably wondering what apps you should load up your iPad with. If you don’t have an iPad, bookmark this post and come back later when you get yours.

I received my iPad a few weeks ago and the first time I got it, I surfed around looking for iPad app round ups. But the Apple community seems to be lack of posts like this, so I hope this will help you find something useful.

Below are 40 carefully handpicked iPad apps that I find useful and well designed. Some of which are free, some are paid, some I have used and some I have not.

Enjoy!
