Dropbox updated for iPad

This week’s most notable update to the App Store is the newest version of Dropbox. It’s universal now, meaning you can take full advantage of the iPad’s luxurious screen to view those files you allow Dropbox to sync for you. Oh, but there’s more. How much? Take a look at this week’s list…

  • Dropbox – This is a must have storage app for iPad. It links up with your Dropbox account to keep a folder (up to 2GB for free) synced across all of your Dropbox enabled devices, including iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, PC and now iPad. It’s a great way to have access to certain files everywhere, or even just transfer stuff to your iDevice. Remember, if you favorite a file on your iDevice in this app, it will be stored for offline viewing. It can even share those files with other iPad apps like Mail, etc. If you don’t already have this app, you should be asking yourself why.
  • Photobucket for iPad – This is probably one of the most used apps on my iPad, not because it’s useful, but because it’s just so darn entertaining. You can browse images posted on Photobucket organized by categories. And since the iPad is the ultimate device for viewing pictures, this could eat up hours of time. Download with caution…could be too much fun.
  • ARCreader – The iPad is the perfect device for reading comic books, and now there’s an app that makes it easy too. This app reads PDF, CBZ CBR, ZIP and RAR archives. If you aren’t familiar with these formats, they are the standard for storing comic books. Someone out there is really happy about this app, I just know it.
  • Pocket Pond – Fish tanks are so last year. Fish in ponds are far more interesting than fish in tanks. It’s more natural. This app reacts to touching, so you can ripple the water or feed the koi. Sounds are realistic, so you might just want this app for the audio. Looks very nice.
  • Chase Mobile – If you’re a Chase customer you’ll want to grab this iPad updated version of their popular mobile banking app. It’s a great tool to have.
  • Mahjong Match HD Lite – Free Mahjong on the iPad. Looks pretty nice, but you’ll be bugged to buy the full version. Not a whole lot else to say really.
  • How Long Can You Turn It? – This has to be one of the silliest apps for iPhone I’ve seen in a while. This game requires you to spin your iDevice. That’s it. Just keep spinning it. When you’ve finally given up, the timer will stop, and then you’ll know just how much time you’ve wasted trying to slowly scratch the back of your iDevice on a table.
