The first thing you’ll mostly likely do with your shining, shimmering, self-luminous rectangular gadget we call iPad is to (ab)use its storage capacity—that’s if you’re anything like me. Some people might prefer looking for iPad accessories first rather than having a spin with iPad apps, though. But as they say, apps are the lifeblood of these blank canvasses, so you’d likely end up choosing apps meandering over the cloud sooner or later.
Before, I load my device with apps that look interesting. But then again, the amusement I get from these seemingly entertaining apps don’t last all the way through as they lack the oomph factor I’ve been always looking for—and yes, what we all are after for. The list of must-have iPad apps had already been published, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to add some apps on the list that could get your iPad’s old apps ditched. Let’s hit the list below, shall we?
#1: GoodNotes Free – Notes & PDF
You already have your own default note app on your iPad, why the need for another note app? If you think critically like me, you’d probably be asking the same question. It’s actually pretty easy to jot down something in just a few taps using the preinstalled note app. But hey, GoodNotes Free – Notes & PDF app actually does more than that. This app allows you not just to write with your own handwriting, but also make a doodle—or practically anything you do on your notebook (except folding or tearing the pages). It’s more like a real notebook, but only virtual and doesn’t need a pen. And don’t you forget that the app has a tail on its name saying, “Notes & PDF.” This actually means that you can open PDFs using this app and highlight all the important things on the file. And yes, you can also scribble out some notes right then and there. [Free on iOS]
#2: AccuWeather – Weather for Life for iPad
Now, if you want to stay abreast with the weather, then AccuWeather – Weather for Life for iPad app is a must-have. Of course, most events depend on the weather conditions. If you are planning for something special, being watchful of the weather conditions is highly advisable. You need not worry since this app shows no technicalities and jargons. It is made pretty simple and easy to use to give you the most accurate weather information there is. That’s what the name stands for—Accurate Weather. Aside from weather forecasts, it also has features like giving weather alerts via push notifications, allergen specifics that could possibly affect your outdoor activities, humidity, wind speed, visibility, and the list goes on. You can also easily navigate as this app is associated with Apple Maps. [Free on iOS]
#3: Fayve – Watch Movies & TV on Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, VUDU, Hulu, Xfinity, Redbox, Crackle and more
What a title indeed. That’s because this Fayve app—to call it shortly as it should be—can do so much to your favor. On a typical TV, it’s always hard to catch up on your favorite show unless you keep yourself tuned in your channel and know the time they are scheduled to be played. Well, that’s only for one channel. Do you know what you are missing on the other channels? With Fayve app, you can discover movies & TV shows on services all at once. In this way, you won’t have to miss a single clip that you‘ve always wanted to watch (except when you only have limited time). At least you can stay abreast on what’s ahead when talking about movies and you’ll always have something to look forward to. Moreover, this app suggests movies and TV shows basing from your in-app ratings and Facebook likes. Now, you get to save a fraction of time when searching for a movie that suits your taste. All thanks to Fayve! [Free on iOS]
So, let me ask you once more. Wouldn’t you ditch your iPad’s old apps with these ones? Try them now!
