To Celebrate the release of the new iPad, the ultimate iPad starter guide is now free! All articles and AppLists have been fully refreshed and loaded with the freshest apps.
AppStart is the first app to download on your iPad: An app starter kit with all the essential apps you'll ever need.
AppStart takes a fresh and fun approach to teach the average Joe (or insert your name here) how to become more familiar with his/her iPad and apps. NO THIS IS NOT A BORING MANUAL. We’ll fill you on the basic things that everyone should know, and then get you started with the best apps for you.
Throughout the app you’ll find special sections that tell you apps you'll need to turn your iPad into a specific kind of tool. You'll also be given a list of the essentials apps for certain types of user (lawyers, teachers, musicians, moms, dads, etc). If you see something that sounds interesting to you, click it! We’ll give you the exact set of apps to download and you’ll be on your way, no need to scour the top charts in the App Store.
This app starts out pretty basic, but by the time you get to the end you’ll be performing all the tricks that truly make the iPad “magical.” Oh, did we mention that you’re going to have fun doing it. We love the iPad and what we love even more is watching each person get the most out of it.

What's New in Version 1.5
Added Push Notifications and new method of updating content.
Great Starter App
I always recommend this app to friends new to the iPad. I think it's very informative, helpful and even a resource for those that have had the iPad for some time. As a rule of thumb, there's more than one source for anything you want to know more about. This app recommends many of the apps I found to be best in the highlighted category but then I've found so many great apps that aren't on these lists. Start here but do your own research to find out if these recommendations will work for you.
In the excitement of this new hardware, it's so easy to buy something that is the latest buzz but falls short of the competition that has been around and tested for a while. Right now, that buzz is around the latest digital "paper" applications.
Was browsing through games and was reading about the great real racing 2. I want to grab it. Click on the link. Go to the app store and make my purchase. Purchase made, nice!!! Look away, look back. Look away, look back... I had just bought real racing hd rather than RR 2. While it was my bad for not taking my time I would appreciate it in the future if your advertisements actually led to the correct product in the app store and not just a similar one especially in the no take backs'ys world of the appstore. Also if you want to track me down and give me back the 5 dollars i just wasted being stupid I would appreciate the gesture.
Other than that snafu this app is great with crystal clear imagery and smooth navigation
It's for beginners?
What's strange about this app is that it doesn't feel very intuitive unlike say Flipboard, iBooks, or pulse; which is really weird since this is aimed at people who are new to iPad.
Another problem is the content itself. I can get books and mostly text articles anywhere anytime. There are very little in terms of pictures and illustration; the welcome text content is also too formal too much at one time.
Tdlr: It's a good idea, but it failed the dad test. He didn't even get past the welcome page.
Still I think this app will eventually be fixed and become a success. I am just at a loss why it was featured by apple though, given the current quality.
