Best iPad Apps: Download these now

Without apps, tablets are pretty useless. And the apps you download can transform your tablet into anything you want: a source of entertainment, a source of communication or a way to look for jobs.

If you’re an Apple fan, you might have noticed that iPad apps are more expensive than their iPhone equivalents. But there is a reason for this — it’s because they’re of a higher quality.

Whether you recently got an iPad and want to get the most out of your new tablet, or have had an iPad for a while and want to give it a new lease of life, here are the best apps you should download right away:

Tweetbot 4 for Twitter

Let’s be honest, one of our main uses of smartphones and tablets is social media. If Twitter is your go-to, download Tweetbot 4 for Twitter.

It may not be the cheapest app – costing £9.99 – but it allows users to swap out the main feed for a list, track stats and mute users. For many Tweeters, this is the only way to use the social media platform.

Slash Keyboard

As well as providing us with entertainment, as users, we love apps that make life more convenient. And that’s exactly what the (free) Slash Keyboard app does.

Designed to make it easier to share online content, users can add commands to quickly find and add links to notes, documents and social media posts.


Join the trend of adult colouring books while simultaneously making use of your Apple Pencil by downloading the Pigment app.

Instead of tapping to auto-fill spaces, this free app (with in-app purchases) allows users to choose different brush types and zoom in without losing quality. This is
the perfect app to help you relax on your commute.


With a plethora of note-taking apps, how do you know which one is worth downloading? If you’re after flexibility, look no further than Notability.

As well as typing notes, users can draw, annotate, add audio recordings and import PDFs and web pages. The app also allows users to share notes through numerous sources.

And if that didn’t sell it to you, it was recognised by Apple as the Best Selling Paid Productivity app for four years in a row.


Netflix – the ultimate source of entertainment. As well as having a host of films at your fingertips, Netflix originals, such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, are sure to keep you entertained on your commute.

The app is free to download and users get a one-month free trial. Members have a choice of monthly plans, so they can choose the one that’s right for them.


If you’re looking for a free alternative to iMovie or Pinnacle Studio Pro, head to the Apple iTunes Store and download Splice.

While this accessible video editor might seem simplistic, it has a surprising amount of depth to it. By accessing an individual clip that has been imported, users can
choose from a whole host of tools, including speed adjustment, text overlays and animation effects.
