Incredibly I am writing this without an iPad2 in my possession. We are among the seething masses who keep missing out. I call, I visit the stores, my husband calls, he visits the stores and we both get the same response: ‘Sold out, don’t know when we’re getting more in and no, you can’t reserve one!’
It doesn’t seem fair to hold back the list of great apps you’ve all been kind enough to share just because I don’t have my iPad yet. So here it is. And thank you to Gregory over at Unplggd for getting the word out. As always the Unplggd readers were really helpful. Here are your top 5 apps.
1.Evernote Everyone loves Evernote. I use Simplenote on my iPhone and laptop but all this positivity around Evernote may just sway me!
2 Drop Box I use this file-sharing site on my MacBook Pro and it is’s excellent
3. Informant First I’ve heard of this one but it won the ‘Best of Show 2011′ at this year’s MacWorld Expo
4. Good Reader Your choice for reading PDFs
5. Penultimate Seems we can still us our iPad like a notepad. I love this one!
