    Just got the US Census app dwellr . It's really fun.
    Don't read the comments section. You want to, but don't do it.

    This is my first post, figured this is as good a place as any to get started!
    Here are a few more apps that I find useful:
    Waze
    Maplets
    Gaia GPS ($20 but totally worth it if you want real-deal GPS on your phone)
    Genius Scan
    Pocket or other read-it-later app (invaluable for aggregating articles, resources, and random internet stuff)
    Aviary or other photo editing app
    Evernote - a very powerful productivity/cloud app...if you only check out one app from this list make it Evernote. If you use it you know what I'm talking about
    Any pertinent cloud apps:
    Google Drive
    Adobe Creative Cloud
    Dropbox

    If you have an iPad and do or are interested in graphics, you MUST check out Procreate. It is stellar.
