    The 20 Best Apps For The HP TouchPad
    HPís TouchPad launched with around 300 tablet-specific apps. We combed the catalog to bring you our favorites so far.

    The 20 Best Apps For The HP TouchPad - Slideshow from PCMag.com

    The HP TouchPad may have been discontinued, but the thousands of people who picked up tablets in HP's recent sale still have plenty of apps to choose from. HP has hundreds of dedicated TouchPad apps in its store, and the tablet can also run about 70 percent of the more than 8,000 apps designed for HP's WebOS phones. The phone apps run in a little phone-sized box on the tabletís 9.7-inch screen, though.

    It is shocking how poorly investigated this list is. It is actually shocking that 'Glimpse' is not even on the list. Whereas it should easily be atleast in the top FIVE.
    Pre3 (AT&T meta-doctored to ROW) webOS 2.2.4 build 3175
    TouchPad WiFi (32GB) - webOS 3.0.5 build 86
    App Catalog (US) - Vodafone (India)

    Treo 180 > 270 > 600 > 650 > 680 > Pre+ > Pre2 > Pre+ > Pre3 & tPad

    I never considered the app catalog an app (although I guess technically it is).

    Nice catch, dessert. Thanks

    I don't know what this fascination is with slide shows either. I'd much rather see it all on one page as well. There's 22 slides, so the App Catalog isn't included as being one of the 20 apps. Subtract the 2 slides he uses to show the App Catalog and you get 20 apps.

    Articles like this usually leave out something but they did point out a few apps I haven't discovered on my own yet.


    PS - I thought there were more TPad specific apps than what's stated. Maybe my math teacher didn't do as well as I thought all those years ago.

    Poorly researched article. How can he leave out glimpse, gemini file manager, videoflood HD (which was updated yesterday btw) and Kalemsoft?

    Seems like the Guy was too Cheap to buy some Apps to do his research. 90% of what he listed where the freebies

    Honestly what a ****ty list. Half the stuff comes on the device, and really the app catalog and the app list (which isnt even an app...) are included? Cant believe I just gave them 22 views for that.

    So do we have a user created Top 20 apps list rather than one generated by PC Mag?

    Yeah, or Kalemplayer. Wallpaper switcheroo is also really good.

    Unfortunately, it's all about monetizing the website. More page views, more ad revenue.

    It wasn't around when the prev. lists were put together, but it's a BIG favorite with me.
    I bought my Touchpad primarily as a book reader & for email & browsing when traveling. I'll use Kindle Daily...

    Another one that's high on my list is TB File Transfer for wireless file transfers between my PC & my Touchpad.

    I agree, technically it is, but it should not take up the space of a regular well deserving app.

    This is sad list without comics hd on it.

    I hate slide shows as well. All the top webos app lists I found when I first got my Touchpad sucked. And I agree with whocares69, Comic Shelf HD should be on that list and I'd say every other list as well. That's why I bought my Touchpad in the first place.

    grumble grumble. The forum ate my post.

    Anyway, let's do our own best app list. Everything's from memory so some prices may need to be edited later.

    1.Tapnote Pro $5 (?) - Dropbox syncing text editor with cursor left/right buttons. Can open multiple documents, each in their own card. Good conflict management. Buy the pro and if you've got a phone on the same WebOS account, you get that free too. Replaced ClassicNote on my Pre as all my text docs are synced now between PC, TP, Pre, and NookColor (use Epistle on Android for syncing text editor but not as good as TapNote)

    2.Glimpse $2 (?)-- a multi-pane way of getting info. Great for reading twitter & RSS feeds. Actually makes RSS feeds that only have summaries easier as you can launch full article in a browser pane. Even better when it's Advanced Browser.

    3.Advanced Browser - $2 (?)--(works with Glimpse) Tabs, background loading, awesome.

    4.Spaz - multicolumn twitter goodness

    5.Internalz (Pro is awesome via Preware) File manager, text editor. Pro gives access to system files and can install patches.

    6.Preware Documentation -tells you how to get Preware

    7.Grupo -Free- for checking multiple cities' Groupon quickly

    8.Comics HD -Free- great webcomic reader

    9. USA Today -Free- yeah, semi-fluffy stories but great to read over breakfast

    10. New Republic - Like USA today but an aggregator. Tons of articles.

    11. Data Manager -$5- it's like all the list apps rolled into one relational database. Need a CD catalog? Make it. How about a recipe list? Done.

    12. GraphCalc (TruGraphcalc?)- Free - graphing calculator with formulas new to catalog. A little tricky to use at first (delete/backspace is in upper left) but a good app.
