The top 50 iPad apps

It’s easy to forget that when Apple’s first iPad was unveiled in January 2010, there were plenty of cynics questioning the need for a slate-shaped device sitting somewhere between a smartphone and a laptop computer. Microsoft had pitched tablets a decade before, to little interest. So what were iPads for? Scroll on 21 months and a second-generation model later, and we have a better idea: iPads are for lounging on the sofa, browsing, emailing, tweeting and Facebooking, for sure. But they’re also for playing games, reading books, discovering music, watching films and TV shows, following recipes, video-chatting with friends and much more. And if iPad has found its multiple roles, the burgeoning number of apps available for the device is a key reason.There are currently more than 100,000 native iPad apps available, although, as with the iPhone, a big chunk of those are filler. But the good apps are really good: creative, innovative, imaginative, useful and fun (or at least several of the above).
