Pandora Radio

Pandora Radio iPad app

And when iPhone 4.0 is released for the iPad this fall, Pandora will play in the background - finally

Pandora Radio is another iPhone app that takes good advantage of the iPad's larger display. And if you live in the US (sorry, UK readers) and aren't already familiar with the Music Genome Project and Pandora, you just haven't been paying attention.


PCalc Lite

pCalc iPad app

If trig et al. isn't enough for you, pony up for an engineer's or programmer's power pack

More calculator power that most folks will ever need, including trig functions, log, and various exponentials. Access the in-app PCalc Store to add more features, functions, themes, and engneering- or programmer-specific capabilities.


Pro Keys

Pro Keys iPad app

An uncomplicated way to tickle the iVories

This straightforward polyphonic or monophonic keyboard has two ranks, each with seven voices and simple effects. Unfortunately, it only works in one landscape orientation - and that one is 180 degrees off Apple's tilt-up iPad case. [Update: When we wrote this, Pro Keys was free. It's now 99¢. Life goes on.]
