The iPad is, by far, the most software-rich tablet out there. We’ve been creating Best iPad Apps lists for years now, but this is something new. We’ve completely rewritten and recreated our master list of fantastic iPad apps. In the pages ahead, you’ll find more than 100 of our faves, from Amazon Instant to Zite, with more to come! We’ll add new apps on a regular basis and tweak this article to help you find apps in any category you need. Each main category page is split into subcategories too, so you can find the best apps for Turn-by-turn navigation just as easily as ones for transit directions. It’s all right here. Let us know what you think in the comments section, or suggest something we’ve missed!
