Okay, but just being a free iPad app isn’t enough. (In fact there are hundreds of free iPad apps.) It’s the cool apps -- the very coolest iPad apps -- that we want on our wonderful shiny tablet.

So here you go. All free iPad apps. Only the coolest. Peruse the full list of apps, or jump to the iPad app category of your choice:

2. The Weather Channel Max for iPad

The classic Weather Channel: Hour by hour local weather in your neighborhood, customizable weather maps, storm footage, in-motion radar. One of the most popular iPad apps, free or not – with good reason.

3. Weatherbug iPad app

Sure, you could look out the window, but this free iPad app gives you soooooo much more. One word: Webcams. Yes, it has webcams from around the globe, showing the weather in real time. Plus, the temperature in various airports, forecasts, satellite views, and much more. Awesome app. This app alone makes me want to whip out an iPad while waiting for a plane and watch the other passengers get jealous.

4. Photos: The Guardian Eyewitness for iPad

The most eye-catching , relevant and visually distinct photos, fresh everyday, from the Guardian, one of the UK’s leading news sources. Constant access to the latest top 100 photos from across the globe. Plus: save your favorite and share via Facebook. I’d call this a leading use of the iPad.

5. USA Today for iPad

What news source could be better suited to the iPad than USA Today, with its never ending outpouring of pie charts and easy-to-digest graphics? A marriage made in heaven. Plus: USA Today keeps it short and snappy, without all the troublesome nuance and depth offered by the Times and the Journal.

Guardian free iPad app, cool free iPad apps.

6. Newsy iPad App

Can a free news app make you smarter. That’s the Newsy claim. It’s a video site that churns out it’s own daily videos, purporting to give you the nuance and backstory to global news. Break out of your box – the Newsy approach claims to offer news from more than viewpoint. You might even hear something you disagree with.

7. New York Times iPad App

The New York Times on your iPad is essentially the entire world in the palm of your hand. Recipes to politics, movies to the breaking news, podcasts, trailers, video clips.

8. NPR for iPad

Probably the most thoughtful news outlet in America. Who else does episodes about African Fire ants back to back with that day’s political news? Plus: allows you to read stories while listening to live stations or on demand audio.

10. Wall Street Journal iPad App

One of America’s leading news sources, laid out in multimedia glory on your iPad. Financial news, stock and bonds, and the famously conservative Op-Ed page. Totally free, but of course there is a pay wall protecting some of the Journal’s content. No, there’s no such thing as a free lunch….

11. Zinio Magazine Reader
