Yes. I browse wikipedia articles on my laptop with Opera tablet version as I keep my laptop on corner of the table and wires extending all over the tabletop are frustrating.

I keep my Calibre library in Dropbox and like the fact that I can access all the books in my library at any time. I find that I can navigate through the 1300 author folders very easily because there is an index tab (ie letters a-z on right of screen can be highlighted).
I would like to use my Sugarsync account for my library as it offers a great deal more free storage. However, it doesn't have an index tab which means scrolling through screen after screen to reach an author folder.
Does anybody have a solution?

I bought an app called Due this week-end. I may be the last person to discover it, as I found it in the "popular apps" section of the app store I think. It does seem very useful, and as some of the comments say it does two things that iOS should do out of the box: reminders and timer. On my Mac I use Calendar to remind myself of repeating tasks such as changing my contact lenses, but on the iPad it's close to useless since all it does is display the reminder once on the locked screen, and that's all. Maybe with the new OS it will work better. Anyway, with Due you can very easily create reminders. And it also came in handy today as a timer, since for some mysterious reason Apple seems to have removed the Clock app from the iPad. I've already had to buy a World clock app to find out what time it is in Florida before calling my sister.

As I said, I only bought it this week-end, but so far I'm liking this Due app. Easy to use and very useful.

This is not really an app - in fact it's a book disguised as an app - but it's really, really worth the money. It's called Tips & Tricks - iPad secrets, and it has more useful information than the $15 book I bought from Amazon. The only annoying thing is the page turning animation (with matching sound, if you please), but it's only a minor annoyance. This book has taught me several invaluable tricks, such as tapping the top bar to go back to the top of a page. Very useful on the forum!

TEDTalks is a nice app for those who want a little brain food. Streaming video of short talks by interesting people from all over the world. Check out the renowned website for a taste.

Yes, lots of interesting stuff there. And on iTunes U also. At the moment I am watching a series of short videos on science by prof. Russel Stannard. Some time ago I followed a course on critical reasoning from Oxford university. Both very interesting.

I mostly use my iPod touch as a streaming audio device, so internet radio apps would be my favs: AOL Radio - TuneIn Radio - HiDef Radio - Radio.com - iHeartRadio - etc. I also like listening to audiobooks, so I use either Audible or the built-in Music app.

I hate iTunes, so it's only used for apps and audiobooks; and they must be free or I pass them by.

I don't carry my touch on a day-to-day basis because it's too big, but I would take it with me on vacation (stuffed in a small camera bag). Travel apps and net access would be great tools to have while away from home.

Havent tried it yet, but echoecho sounds interesting. If you are trying to meet up with someone it tells/shows you where they are.

Other apps do this but they broadcast your location. Echoecho let's you ping someone from your contact list and it will temporarily turn on gps to find a location and send it, then turn it off. Helps manage battery.

For travelling I can recommend Trip Adviser for planning trips, Yelp! for recommendations of just about any kind of restuarant and places to see, and Urbanspoon strictly for restaurants. I found Yelp! especially useful when I vacationed in Puerto Rico.

Thanks for the recommendations. I already have TripAdvisor and Yelp. Urbanspoon looks interesting, so I downloaded it. I'll try it out sometime.

Hmmm... I just downloaded Yelp to give it a try... It couldn't recognize my location so I had to point it to it on the map, but it doesn't know about the 2 restaurants within 500 m of where I live. I searched for Istanbul, where I'm going next week, and it didn't recognize the name. Then I made a search for restaurants in Paris and found 20. I guess the app must be useful to someone, but that's certainly not me.

Update: for Paris, Urban Spoon gives me a choice of three cities in the U.S. Double hmmm...

Works great over here in the US. Maybe they want you to live here.

Yes, that's probably it

By the way, it seems my iPad is suddenly lost and doesn't know where I am!!! Strange, I don't remember this happening before, though to be honest I don't use the location services very often. I guess it's feeling cross because I forgot it at work yesterday and wants to punish me.
