Hi everyone!

Today I’m going to share some essential apps for a new iPad or iPhone.

Yelp (Free, iPad & iPhone) - This is great to find restaurants and anything else in general.
Apps Gone Free (Free, iPad & iPhone) - This gives you daily apps that have gone free for a small amount of time. I highly recommend this one.
Pages ($10, iPad & iPhone) - This is the best word processor for iPad & iPhone.
Flixster (Free, iPad & iPhone) - This gives you movies in theaters and showtimes. You can even buy movie tickets right from the app!
YouTube (Free, iPad & iPhone) - I still can’t figure out why Apple stopped putting this on their devices.
The Google Maps Web App (Not in App Store: See this link for easy install instructions, iPad & iPhone) - Does this really need explanation? Let’s just ask each other if we want cars driving into the ocean.

Parking Mania ($1, iPad & iPhone) - This is a must-have for people that love cars. You drive around in a car and try to park it.
Plants vs Zombies ($1, iPad & iPhone) - I’m sure you’ve heard of this.
Fruit Ninja ($1, iPad & iPhone) - You have to slice fruits and unlock different modes; very fun!
Cube Runner (Free, Only Optimized for iPhone) - This is an action game; you try to navigate yourself through the cubes.
Temple Run (Free, iPad & iPhone) - You are running away, trying to escape the beasts chasing you through a temple.
Sky Burger (Free, Only Optimized for iPhone) - Burger ingredients are falling from the sky; you have to try to make the burger that has been ordered by collecting the right ingredients on your bun.
