The Best iPad Apps for 2019
Fact: Tablets are nothing without a rich selection of apps. Thankfully, all iPad users can take advantage of the App Store’s huge selection. The right app can transform the iPad, regardless of which model you own, into nearly anything you desire. However, with so many options at your fingertips, how do you find those worth downloading?
Look no further than this roundup. PCMag’s staff has tested hundreds of iPad apps and highlighted the best of the best. If you’re a glutton for punishment, you could dig through the depths of the App Store for user reviews, but that demands a lot of time and little-known apps of high quality may have only a handful of reviews anyway.
What You’ll Find in This List
Our list features native iPad apps that deliver unique and compelling tablet-based experiences. Note that these are not just iPhone apps running on a larger screen. For your convenience, we’ve divided our selections into eight categories and linked the app name to its page on the App Store.
We’ve also included links to in-depth reviews where available. Rest assured that even those apps that haven’t been fully reviewed are included because they’ve impressed us after some serious hands-on time.
What You Won’t Find in This List
The Best iPad Apps doesn’t include games or preinstalled apps. The former aren’t included because default apps are easy to find—they already live on your iPad’s home screen. The latter aren’t included because we’ve broken out the best iPad games into their own dedicated article.
Looking for apps for your other devices? We’ve got you covered there, too, with our roundups of the best android apps and best iPhone apps.
