Love the iPad and it’s seamless integration with all of my devices and technology tools, especially some of the latest updates with iOS 5. I’m continuously amazed with all the creative apps that are available. But, have to admit that it’s tough to keep up with everything that is out there and narrow it down to what is truly useful instead of just another icon in the continuously growing number of my swiping pages. Spent some time recently honing in on which ones I really make use of and enjoy as a web/interactive designer and developer. The list below are 8 of the best free iPad apps that I have found particularly useful and inspirational.
