Stupid question I know. I have ordered an iPad, but want to know if I can begin downloading apps to my MacBook now and sync with my iPad later (like with the iPhone), or do I have to wait till my iPad arrives?

Apologies for sounding like a moron :unsure:

I have at least half a dozen iPad only apps just waiting in iTunes waiting to be freed..... :)

Which ones? I know there is a thread on "must have" apps, but I'd be interested in hearing what a fellow-expectant iPad owner has selected.

Only free ones at the moment (I have to come to Oz this week and actually find an iPad first!)

iPad only


Go SkyWatch Planetarium
1000 Ultimate Experiences
Pocket Pond
Twitterific
Sudoku Tablet
Comics


iPhone/Pad apps that I've only downloaded since deciding to get an iPad


Epicurious


I'll have fun once I get it.......

And just to add to be able to download without the iPad, which I'm surprised you haven't asked is use iTunes and go into the store and select Apps tab, or did you already know that? ;)

Yeah, sort of figured that out

I had about 160 apps by the time my iPad finally arrived. Mostly free ones so I could see if I wanted to buy the full version, and to see which version of duplicate apps were the best.

Cheers for asking this - wouldn't have known otherwise. Unfortunately I got in a bit late to get the free 1000 Lonely planet experiences app for free, but I've also scheduled a few dozen apps ready for when the iPad arrives :)

Would also be interested in seeing people's suggestions for free apps to check out - though I guess that's for another thread ;)
