Apple and it’s app creators have done it once again! Not only have you probably discovered by now that the iPad can make your life a lot more simple with it’s productivity apps, news apps, even travel and weather apps, we can’t forget to have fun!
This week in the top ten app lists for iPad, paid and free apps, an old favorite that many will remember spending hours with has made the number one spot. Pac Man for iPad is finally here and better than ever with a virtual joy stick or the option of letting you use the “swipe method” using only your finger as your guide for the little yellow guy.
I urge you to watch the video demonstration at the end of the article to give you an idea of just how cool Pac Man has become in 2010. There is one correction I would like to pass along. In the video it states that Pac Man is 4.99, well good news gamers, the price has been lowered for a limited time to .99, Yeah!

So there you have it the best of the best for the first week in July. Some have stayed strong returning week after week, while others are new to the list.
Now, if some of these look interesting and you would like to check them out then the free ones are a no brainer. Simply load on to your iPad, ( or iPhone or iPod touch if compatible ) and check them out. If you don’t like it, or find you don’t use it as much and you may have originally thought then simply erase it.
When it comes to the paid apps I have found that going to YouTube is very helpful as there is a video demo for just about every app you could think of. Sort of a try before you buy, if you will.
So go out there, take along your ultra portable iPad, enjoy the summer, soak up the sun and get things done.
