Apple's iPad mini and revamped iPad 4 launched just two short days ago.
If you were lucky enough to score one, you'll want to start off your experience right by downloading these awesome apps.
The apps we selected come from across the spectrum and are sure to make your iPad more entertaining and useful.
The first three apps you need to download are, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, and Hulu.
Netflix, Amazon Instant, and Hulu allow streaming of TV shows and movies straight to your iPad.
Each service offers different experiences. The downside is you have to have a subscription to watch and they all cost different prices.
Netflix streaming is $7.99 per month and offers 1 month of free streaming.
Amazon's Instant video service is $79 per year. This breaks down to about $6.58 per month. Not only do subscribers get unlimited instant streaming to thousands of shows, if you're an Amazon shopper, you also get two-Day shipping on millions of items, plus a Kindle book to borrow for free each month from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.
Hulu Plus offers unlimited instant streaming of thousands of shows and movies for $7.99 per month.
While all three services are good in their own respect if we had to choose a winner, we'd pick Amazon's Prime Instant video service. It is the cheapest and the only service to bring other useful perks like quicker shipping with it.
Think of Evernote as your online notebook for everything. The service lets you store text notes, audio files, photos, web articles, to-do lists, and just about anything else you can think of online. You can then access all your stuff on your PC, the web, or mobile device.
Amazon's Kindle bookstore has over 1 million books that you can read on all your devices, even PC.
Kindle lets you to purchase and read books from Amazon's book store. The app is well-designed and robust and offers an excellent interface. We love that your purchased books sync between all your Kindle devices and apps, so you can pick up where you left off. Amazon Kindle users can also check out books from their local library and lend purchased titles to friends.
