Default Just got a new iPad2 3g what are must have apps?

Wife just got us a new iPad2 3g. Not very savvy with this product and I do not own a smartphone. Sooo, what apps are must haves? I got the GPS and a Casino game app. Like music, boating, travelling, long walks on the beach, oh wait a minute scratch that, wrong venue.

Thanks for the help.

If you want to see how a crack addict feels.... get Angry Birds. You will lose track of time playing that game. VERY addictive.

My fav apps for the IPhone but you can get them for the Ipad also are Fling, Angry Birds, Every Trail, if you like to hike or bike, and ESPN ScoreCenter.

It's just a toy, you really need no apps.

I use mine for work daily, so for actual productivity apps you must get Pages, Numbers and Keynote. (I am typing this on my iPad.)

Otherwise you need to get: Angry Birds (Rio and regular), iBooks, Radarscope, CNN, USA Today, Trip Advisor, Zagat, and SportsCenter XL. There are many more, but those are some of my favorites.

The layout and interface of the CNN app is very impressive.

Looking the iNavX over and it is a bit confusing. If I buy the $49 app do I also have to purchase the Navionics chart package for $29?

Thanks to all that have posted. Some neat stuff for my new ''toy''!

The USA today app is nice.

If you invest at all the E-Trade app is very nice. I use Scottrade but the E-Trade app will give you news for individual stocks and allow you to do basic research.
