Default Best iPad Apps?

So the iPad is pretty convenient for watching movies on Netflix. Are there any other apps that are useful?

Yeah Flipboard is very good.

If you want to use your iPad for work-related stuff...e.g. taking notes during a meeting, then I like "Notes Plus". I've also heard good things about Penultimate although I haven't used it personally.

If you want to do file sharing among multiple devices (iPad, iPhone/Android, PC, etc.) then look into Dropbox.

There are thousands of useful apps, however most are very specialized so it really depends on your needs. I'm a composer and use a lot of the music apps, but most people wouldn't.

Other apps I use a lot: travel, news aggregators, social media (mainly Instagram), and expense tracking.

Dragon Dictation, I use it while in the car on long drives to make notes about various things. Observations for my travel blog, ideas for the next chapter of my novel, etc.

I use the Kindle App a lot. I also use Perfect Reader to store PDF files, usually those are scans from books such as maps or passages I want to remember while I'm trying to find a Ghost Town, old gold mine, or other hidden location.

Google Earth - for the obvious reasons. I'll "pre-load" it by looking at maps in the area I'm going to be in before I loose signal, it's been a life saver many times.

MapQuest - for the navigation, along with Google Maps. I use both, MapQuest for longer trips, Google Maps when I need to find something nearby and want to see multiple routes on how to get there.

I also use the Wordpress App for blogging on the road, and use Writers Kit coupled with Dropbox to work on my novel.

I'm thinking of buying an iPad for my 9-year nephew. He's autistic but, on the spectrum, he would be considered a high functioning child. He's smart and curious but has poor social interaction skills, which has hindered his development. So I think a tablet could address some of the 3 Rs he may be missing out in a classroom setting. Should I purchase an iPad, what apps should I consider?
