Free IPad Apps: Top Hits And Hidden Gems
Free IPad Apps: Top Hits And Hidden Gems, You may have a few of these on your device already – but not all of them. It’s the hottest tech toy of the year, thus far, and for good reason: Apple’s latest iPad builds upon what made its predecessors so popular – an intuitive touchscreen interface, smooth integration with iTunes and 10-hour battery – but have added a high-resolution “Retina” display, better cameras and faster graphics processor.
Finding and downloading applications at the App Store is also a cinch compared to other tablets, and with nearly 800,000 to choose from — including support for apps designed for iPhone and iPod touch.
In fact, not only are apps relatively affordable — only a buck or two apiece, for the most part — but many tens of thousands of them are completely free to use, as well.
If you’re looking to fill up your iPad with awesome apps that won’t cost you a dime, consider these following suggestions — ranging from the über popular to the obscure, but all worthy of your attention.
Skype for iPad
Using a Wi-Fi network or cellular connectivity (if the tablet has it), you can see who you’re talking to and they can see you, plus you can tap to change to the rear-facing camera for them to see what you’re looking at (such as a home renovation, as you walk around the home). Another great video calling app for iPad is Apple’s own FaceTime, which works over Wi-Fi but not cellular connectivity.
As you listen to your tunes, the camera slowly pans around the beautifully animated celestial scene. Not only does it look great on the iPad’s 9.7-inch screen, but you also can connect the tablet to a big-screen TV (via an optional HDMI adapter) to wow your friends during a house party.
