The Best of Music, Movies, Books and More
The iPad is great for a lot of things from reading the news in the morning to getting some work done, but let's jump straight to entertainment. The iPad's screen and accessibility makes it a great way to watch movies and listen to music around the house.
The Best Utility and Productivity Apps
The iPad is often called a consumption device, meaning that it was designed to watch video and read text, but there's quite a bit you can do with it beyond music, movies and games. Not only does it make a great way to organize your day, but you can easily get done basic tasks like word processing and tallying totals in a spreadsheet.

Great Apps to Get Your Daily Does of News
I've already mentioned Flipboard, which can be a pretty good way to get your news, but there are a lot of great apps designed specifically for going with your morning coffee. The best apps for news usually combine sources from across the Internet to bring you the best of the best, but there are a few great papers in the app store and at least one newspaper designed specifically with the iPad in mind.
The Top Apps for Social Networking
Facebook and Twitter have become synonymous with staying in touch with your friends and staying connected to the rest of the world. And don't worry, there are plenty of great clients available for the iPad. In fact, you might find some of these apps much better than dealing directly with the websites.
Games Packing the Most Fun
Of course, what would the iPad be without games? Whether you are looking for a hardcore role-playing game for yourself or some of the best games for kids, the iPad has plenty to offer in the app store. In fact, the iPad can be great for families because the games are so much cheaper than games for consoles like the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.
