My Favorite Free iPad Apps
Iâ€™m extremely fond of my iPad. I consider Appleâ€™s tablet to truly be revolutionary. It has changed the way I consume the news, interact with followers on Twitter and Facebook, and even how I blog and keep my journal. All in all, I couldnâ€™t be happier with it. It has truly enriched my professional (and private) life.
Since there are so many great (free!) apps out there, Iâ€™d thought Iâ€™d share my favorite freeÂ iPad apps. I know that there are a lot of paid Apps out there, and reviews of them, but what about the iPad owner who doesnâ€™t have much to spend, or whoâ€™d like to experiment a bit with different kinds of apps, without having to purchase them?
Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™ve compiled this list of my five favorite free iPad apps.
Iâ€™ve got several great news apps on my iPad, but the one by Al Jazeera truly is one of the very best ones out there (even though I disagree rather often with their opinions) Why? Because itâ€™s so easy to switch from reading articles to watching the news channel online. The quality of the video is great. I actually prefer watching Al Jazeera on my iPad to watching it on my TV, because itâ€™s just so darn easy to read a few articles when thereâ€™s a commercial break on. Download Al Jazeeraâ€™s app here.
If you are an avid reader like me, Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ve got Kindle installed on your PC. I know that itâ€™s one of my most used programs on my iMac. However, if you havenâ€™t used the Kindle app for the iPad yet, youâ€™re in for a big surprise. Reading books on an electronic advice has never been so much fun. Itâ€™s easy to highlight certain parts that stand out to you, and the combination of the Kindle app with the iPad feels naturally (which makes it different from most ereaders Iâ€™ve tested). When I used the Kindle app on my iPad for the first time, I immediately realized that critics of paper books are right: ebooks areÂ the future. Download Kindle for iPad here.
Although I like, but am not truly passionate about Evernote on my iMac, I do absolutely love it on the iPad. It feels, again, more natural, and the layout and design is just about perfect. Because itâ€™s so easy to sync between different machines, I can write a journal entry on my iPad and read it back on my desktop, and vice versa. Although I used Â different apps on my desktop to keep my journal, I have now switched to Evernote. Once you try it on your iPad, Iâ€™m confident youâ€™ll do the same.

So, if you too are a news junkie, this is definitely an app you should download and use. Daily. You can start doing so by clickin
