We recently recommended a handful of apps to get new iPad or iPad mini owners up to speed on some common usage patterns. But the buck didn't stop there: Ars readers also chimed in with several recommendations we thought were worth sharing. We've arranged the recommendations loosely into categories, such as games, productivity, and music.
Here at Ars, we use many of these are apps ourselves or know colleagues who use them. Either way, they are apps that Ars readers feel passionate about—a ringing endorsement, I'm sure you'll agree.
We recommended Flipboard for a curated selection of top news articles in your favorite categories and Reeder for sifting through mountains of articles via RSS. One Ars reader recommended Newsify RSS Reader ($0.99) as an alternative to Reeder. It also uses Google Reader to subscribe to and sync RSS feeds, it looks nice, and it will only cost you a buck.
