Did you just buy your first iPad, and want a basic overview of what you can do with it? The new app called AppStart, available for free this week in the App Store, is a great intro to the iPad.
The design of AppStart is gorgeous. Text is clearly written and fun. Most of the articles are roundups or overviews of the best apps in a specific category, and their favorites are generally spot on.
Examples of some of the app advice they include are:
- The first 10 apps everyone needs to download
- How to dump your laptop
- Newsstand to go
- The next generation of board games
- The portable arcade
- Plan a trip
- Organize your photos
- The lowdown on printing
- Apps for cooks
- Apps for students
- Best file managers
- Best password keepers
The app was created by AppAdvice, and their AppAdvice iPad app ($1.99) is a great way to stay up to date on the newest apps, plus it includes mini reviews and roundups.
AppStart is highly recommended for newbies to the iPad as well as seasoned users who want lists of the best apps for specific functions.
