Essential apps for a new tablet [Telegraph-Herald (Dubuque, IA)]

(Telegraph-Herald (Dubuque, IA) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Now that your shiny new tablet is all set up, charged and raring to go, what to do with it? The following are some of the tried-and-true workhorse apps that any new tablet owner will appreciate.


1 Kindle This comes as a surprise to many, but you don't need a Kindle to read Kindle books. The free app is available for all devices and gives you access to more than 1 million Kindle books.

2 NextIssue Like having an entire newsstand at your fingertips, NextIssue gives you access to more than 100 leading magazines for a low monthly fee.

-- Banking app Like having a teller in your pocket, most major banks now offer a banking app that gives you access to and control of all your banking needs from the convenience of your tablet.

4 Netflix The world's leading subscription service for watching TV shows and movies, the Netflix monthly subscription allows you to watch as much as you want whenever you want from your smartphone or tablet.

5 Shazam With a tap on the seemingly supernatural Shazam screen, the app will listen to whatever song is playing and then perform a feat of magic: It will identify the song, album and artist, and then give you the option to purchase the song or to save it for future reference.

6 Paprika The recipe manager app clips your favorite recipes from the Web and syncs them to the cloud so that all of your tidily organized recipes are accessible from any of your devices.

7 Red Cross apps The apps give you everything you need to know about preparing for tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfire, earthquakes - including warnings when applicable.
