Google Mobile

The Safari web browser on the iPad already has a Google search option built into it - though who knows how long that will last with Google and Apple increasingly staring daggers at each other these days. However, the Google Mobile app provides an instant search facility, along with the ability to connect to other Google services such as Google Docs and Maps. Its piéce de resistance, though, is the Voice Search option that allows you to search by using voice commands. The speech recognition is a little dodgy, but it can handle "reghardware" okay – which is all that really matters.

IM+ Lite

There are loads of Twitter and instant messaging apps, but IM+ draws them all together, allowing you to connect to IM services such as Yahoo!, MSN and GoogleTalk, as well as chatting on social networking sites such as FaceBook and MySpace. It uses ‘push’ notifications to keep you updated on new messages, and there’s even a built-in web browser which allows you to switch between chats and web pages without having to quit the app and launch Safari. The Lite version is supported by ads, but these are small and unobtrusive so there’s no real need to upgrade to the full £5.99 version unless you need the additional Skype support that it offers.
