My initial suggestions based on ltd iPad use:

Prefer Lastpass to Spb Wallet; like the cross platform/browser feature
Notability - notetaking, recorder, PDF annotator I am playing with, so far really like it
Google Voice - access to VM from cell
Flixster - movie times & locations
Slacker over Pandora
Mindjet for mapping
IP Cam Viewer - allows access to our campus cameras & Dept of Transportation traffic cameras
Roambi - using for graphing campus attendance on a weekly  & monthly basis
