8. eBay for iPad

9. Mailboxes

Mailboxes lets you share your iPad without having to share your Gmail as well.

The iPad is a wonderful shared device for areas like the living room, letting people browse the web and play games together. However, the iPad isn't ideal for reading email since Mail leaves your email either open for anyone to read, or else makes you have to lock the iPad behind a passcode so no-one else can use it.

Mailboxes solves this problem for Gmail and Google Apps users. You enter you account details and an optional passcode into Mailboxes. When you want to log into you account all you need to do is enter your passcode, Mailboxes will then load up your email in the familiar iPad-optimised Gmail web interface. Then, when you're done or the iPad locks we log you out, keeping your emails safe and secure.

Mailboxes is the easiest, safest way to access your Gmail or Google Apps account on a shared iPad.

13. QNotifier Linux Server Monitoring

The best way to monitor your servers: Installing large monitoring applications is difficult and time consuming, especially if you only have a handful of servers to manage. Qnotifier is an effective way to monitor smaller clusters of servers using a beautiful and responsive interface.

iPad and IOS 4 support: Qnotifier is a universal app and supports both the iPad and iOS 4 multitasking features such as fast application switching. The same functionality is available on both platforms, the iPad just gives you much more room to see your servers.
