Have you just gotten your paws on your very first iPad? Hooray! But you don't want to leave it like that, do you? No. So let's get your feet on the road to appiness, navigating the twisty and confusing paths of the App Store and weeding out exactly what you need.

Now, bear in mind, we are not telling you that these are apps you absolutely must have; everyone's needs will be different after all. But hopefully we can give you a good starting point so you can fly free and customise your iPad however you like.

Are there any good apps that allow you to watch DivX AVI video files without the need to convert to MP4???

Hi Dean,

flex:player looks great, and it's free: http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/flex-player/id451024857?mt=8

And there's AV Player HD for AU$2.99: http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/avplayerhd/id407976815?mt=8

Ok , sorry. I read some other stories and there it was. You should of grouped them together. My bad

No harm done. Grouping them wouldn't work though, as the platforms are incompatible, so the info for one is irrelevant for users of the other.

If CNET was totally professional, they also would of added 50 starter apps for all the people who got an android tablet for xmas. Don't seem biased CNET. That's not your job. Show both sides objectively or nothing at all. You are suppose to be journalist . Do your job properly

It's not 50 apps, but feel free to add some of your suggestions in the comments section of the linked article?

I wouldn't say "totally", but that's why I come here. CNET.com.au has a lot more personality than many other tech sites out there!
