Apple iPad Review
Apple created the market and dominates it with its mature first tablet.
One of the selling points of the iPad is the access to the Apple App Store, which offers over four hundred thousand Apps, including both free and paid products. There is a huge range of products available, ranging from games to utilities to business programs. From fart apps to drug desk guides, as Apple themselves say, “There’s an app for that”.
But, while there is a huge range of Apps available, access to the App store has some restrictions. Apps have to be approved by Apple before they can be offered (including free ones), and Apple is sometimes somewhat capricious about this process, occasionally turning down Apps for reasons ranging from copying the functions of the built-in software to obscenity. However, the huge success of the iPad means that you get to pick and choose between apps, with most offering a trial or free version with limited features. The price of apps varies from 99 cents up to $30-$40.
