Sales of the iPad Air kicked off this weekend and I, like many others, grabbed one of Apple's latest tablets. Coming from an iPad mini, I couldn't wait to try out the new A7 processor in the full-size tablet. As soon as I unwrapped the device, I picked five of my favorite apps and gave the processor a thorough workout.
Unlike the iPad fourth generation, which got a little warm from my nonstop playing, the iPad Air cruised along without a hitch. Enough of the jabber, here are the first five apps I installed on the iPad Air.
iMovie [iOS Universal; US$4.99 (free with new device purchase)]
iMovie is included for free with all new iPads and there is a good reason why Apple bundled this software with the new Air -- its performance is perfectly smooth on the Air.
