In Pictures: 15 Best iPad Apps for Newbies (2012)

Got a shiny, new iPad or iPad Mini? The first thing you'll notice is that the tablet itself isn't all that exciting. It's the apps that make the iPad special. Here are 15 must-have apps.

iMovie

Martin Scorsese. Steven Spielberg. Akira Kurosawa. You're not in their league. But you can still make cool short movies with Apple's iMovie app ($5) on the iPad. There are eight movie themes to choose from. You can add videos and photos from your library or shoot footage right into your timeline, as well as create a soundtrack from your music library. Every movie needs a promo trailer, and there are a dozen Hollywood-style movie trailers to choose from. Ready, set, action!

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
