This morning, eight days ahead of the launch of the iPad on world markets, Apple unlocked the door to the iPad AppStore. I've already had a quick browse through the long list of items, some of them familiar from iPhone days, but many new ones that I'm anxious to try. Perhaps this fillip to the iPad experience will help convince me that the new device has a place in my life.
Notably absent, as far as I can see, are Apple's own apps – iBooks, Pages, Numbers and Keynote. I wonder why? I was looking forward to downloading Numbers, in particular, in readiness for my departure to Greece tomorrow – with iPad, sans MacBook.
