Come across any apps that are really cool? Post them here. My favorites at the moment are

NPR
Google mobile app - google goggles in nothing short of witchcraft
New York times editor's choice - great for top news stories and a nice photojournalism section
Fruit ninja - slice up fruits and such like a samurai
Capture Pilot - if you're into photography and shoot with Capture One 6, Capture Pilot let's you see the shots wirelessly, in real time on your iPad/iPhone
Flixster - movie news, trailers, rotten tomato reviews, local showtimes, etc

I haven't downloaded a lot of iPad apps, but my favorite so far is Fotopedia, which is a collection of thousands of pictures of UNESCO World Heritage sites. You can click a button to read about it, and then click to see where it is on Google Maps.

I totally love it.

AwesomeNote
In my opinion, hands-down the best combination to-do + scratch pad + notes and folders app out there. Syncs with Google Docs. Like my favourite apps, it just gives you a great interface to work with and doesn't force you to use in one particular way or another.

Reeder
There are many good RSS readers that sync with Google Reader; this is my current favourite. Goes for a paper feel with very nice UI design. MobileRSS Free is the free alternative to go for.

Instapaper
Save web articles with one click for reading later offline on your iDevice. Formats everything in a very readable, plain text format, and it's great for those who rely on Wi-Fi and still want to read news on the bus or train.

Flashcards Deluxe
Great, very flexible flashcard program. Import lists of topics to study from Excel worksheets and go to it. Really helping keep my language skills polished.

Hipstamatic. I actually find that I take a lot of photos using it when I'm just walking around the city or home from work, etc.

flightcontrol (might be 2 words, i forget) is fun. you guide planes and helicopters to land safely. i primarily play it on an ipod touch but i did see it on an ipad at a store and it was even more awesome on it.

Anyone have any remote desktop apps? I've been looking at team viewer hd (free) but I hear logmein is pretty awesome (but $30). Who has experience with these? Is logmein worth the money?

For all those interested in photography, there is a pretty cool app called Instagram. It's free and it's like a mixture of Hipstamatic and Twitter, but instead of lame statuses about what someone had for dinner that night, it's just pictures they've taken. Of course, they've all got that hot-at-the-moment faux vintage look. So if you hate that, you'll hate this. Otherwise, it's pretty cool.
Let me know if anyone gets it and I will add you to the friend list
