File manager: GoodReader
Many people really wish the iPad had a shared file system, like a PC or Mac. But it doesn't. GoodReader can give you much of the file manager you want. It provides a central file repository for files you transfer via Wi-Fi, various storage services, iTunes, and the Open In facility used by many iOS apps (such as Mail). GoodReader -- as its name implies -- also lets you read many file formats, inclding several not supported by iOS's naive QuickLook facility. Plus it unzips file archives as well, so you don't need a separate utility for that purpose.
