Top Ten Coolest iPad Apps
Opening weekend for the iPad saw brisk sales and ecstatic new owners. Users are raving about how fast things run and how good everything looks on the screen. Here are Retrevo’s picks for ten of the coolest new iPad apps that might just make you want to run down to your local Apple Store and buy an iPad.
1. Brushes ($9.99)
A true mobile paint studio for fine artists and doodlers alike. Create, or attempt to create at least, expressive works of art with just your fingertips. Brushes for iPad introduces new features like a color swatch with favorites for commonly used colors and a very nifty playback function that acts as your very own speed painter, minus the epic soundtrack.
2. The Elements: A Visual Exploration ($13.99)
This app, based on the book of the same name, uses the new capabilities of the iPad to bring the periodic table to life. Integrating related data with WolframAlpha computable knowledge, each element can be viewed and interacted with in stereoscopic 3D, yes glasses are necessary for 3D. Add to that a high level of polish and you get an experience that is to books what Avatar is to film. We should note it looks great in 2D too.


3. Kindle (Free)


Apple was not shy about its aspirations for the iPad as an e-book reader, but Kindle for iPad makes the list because it means current Kindle owners won’t need to re-purchase their library. For iPad, Amazon also introduced an attractive and usable new library view, controls for adjusting the brightness of the page, and for turning it, and, of course, color photos. Your ereading possibilities just got a whole lot more interesting.
4. Netflix (Free)
We give this app a spot in the top ten because Netflix provides such an awesome service, movies and TV anywhere, in a clean lag-free environment. Unlike other devices, you can browse the streaming library and then watch instantly right from the iPad itself. Finally, a really cool service that needs no hacking or elite expertise to setup. It just works.
5. Plants vs Zombies ($9.99)


We needn’t repeat what EVERYONE else is already saying. We’ll simply perplex you with this: The game is as awesome as it sounds like it’s not… PvZ for iPad boasts new achievements, 4 play modes, and an iPad exclusive mini-game, all wrapped in glorious HD hotness.
6. Twitterrific (Free)
OK, this one is kind of a gimme as it’s already an established favorite on other iDevices, but this iteration lives up to the legacy. You’ll find all the familiar features you’ve grown to love, plus a new sidebar giving you easy access to trends, lists, mentions, favorites and more.
7. AtBat ($14.99)


AtBat by MLB.com is a powerhouse of an app that brings many new features to the iPad. In addition to in-game simulations, pitch tracking, and video highlights, iPad users have customizable displays with stats and details accessible by tapping on a player. MLB.TV subscribers will also be able to watch live broadcast feeds and get the Game of the Day for free.
8. Pandora (Free)
With a constantly fresh flow of music, tailored to your tastes, and delivered anywhere you are, for FREE, no wonder Pandora is such a popular app. Set to bring an immersive experience to your music listening as the iPad matures, Pandora is great already, and should only get better in the weeks ahead.
9. Kayak (Free)
We really like this app! Redesigned to take advantage of the iPad’s huge screen, Kayak searches for flights on dozens of sites at once, sorts your results with an innovative set of filters, and does it all with a well thought out interface.
10. Box.Net (Free)
The Box.net service lets you sync all your work related files and computers, even your Google Apps stuff, in one place online. For iPad, the app shines as a true mobile office thanks to real-time syncing and commenting on shared files, an open API allowing for limitless new features, and planned capabilities like editing with Pages from within the app.
Retrevo Looks Great on the iPad
We’re sorry to say, Retrevo doesn’t have an iPad app….yet….but….you can get all that good gadget info on any browser and we’re talking about reviews and manuals for the latest gear like digital cameras, HDTV, laptops and more.

nothing special yet...

Honestly, the idea of this iPad is good, but it is lacking too many options for me to buy it. I guess the 2nd or 3rd version will be worth it. Right now it is just like my iPhone but in bigger...

I think #1 should be

I think #1 should be AutoCad's Sketbook Pro, this app is the real deal it uses the same engine as its desktop counterpart.
