Best iPad Apps of 2014

Best iPad Apps of 2014

(Apologies that this post is around a week later than usual. I had a bit of a health scare during Christmas week and very low energy for a fair few days. Feeling fine now.)

This has been another year of notable milestones for the iPad – 225 million iPads sold, over 650,000 iPad apps in the App Store, and a breakthrough new partnership between Apple and IBM to develop enterprise apps – just to name a few.

iPad apps continue to be one of the biggest attractions of owning an iPad. There continue to be marquee apps and games that come to the iPad first or the iPad only. Apps that are optimized to the Nth degree specifically for Apple’s tablet. Apps that make us more productive; apps that educate us, young and old; apps that enable creative folks to produce amazing images. videos, and music; and of course plenty of iPad apps and games that just do a great job of entertaining us.

iPad Insight has been reviewing and featuring iPad apps right from Day 1, and this is our 5th annual list of our choices for best iPad apps of the year – the Best iPad Apps of 2014.

Please note that there are a number of repeat winners in this list, because they are still eminently worthy of being on it. Of course there are plenty of new choices too.  Any apps that are repeat choices from 2013 will be marked with an asterisk next to the their names. Also note that this year’s list includes app choices from me and from Thomas Wong and James Potter – apps chosen by Thomas and James will be marked so you know who’s doing each write-up.

One more little note: all App Store links below are for the US App Store. You can just insert your own country code where you see /us/ in the address bar to change to that App Store (if the app is available in that nation). Here we go …

Best iPad App of 2014

Todoist iPad app

Todoist: A runner-up last year, Todoist is a fantastic task manager app for the iPad, and across Mac, Windows, web, and Android too. It already boasted a gorgeous, simple interface and a rich feature set, but In 2014 the developers upped its game in a number of big ways.This year saw a complete rewrite of the app, dubbed Todoist Next; the launch of Todoist for Business, integration with the excellent Cloud Magic email app, a new task time tracking extension for the Chrome browser, IFTT support, and interactive push notifications a Safari action extension and full support for iOS 8.
