Popular and Free Apps for Your Apple iPad. Part 4
A week ago iPadsHouse’s rating of popular and free iPad applications was mainly filled with newspapers. This week the situation has changed a bit.
News applications are still in the listing, however iPad users are trying to educate themselves more, downloading and installing useful programs that would either take them around the world for free or show them how to create iPad shortcuts and discover hidden features.
A recipe app is still in the list, because girlfriends and wives do like to cook and surprise those who they love. Besides this, we have an application for kids who can enjoy a popular Disney story on their parents’ tablet, and an app for music lovers.
And here goes our rating!
