CloudOn (pictured) brings Microsoft Office programs, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint, to your iPad. It plays well with cloud storage providers such as Box, Dropbox and Google Drive, allowing you to open, rename and delete files stored on those services. It also includes Adobe Reader and a file viewer for opening popular file formats, including PDF, JPG, PNG and GIF. CloudOn has its competitors, of course, including Onlive Desktop, a virtual Windows desktop for the iPad, which also includes Windows 7-based versions of MS Office's big three apps.

I second Waze. My other favorite this year is Uber, which has rescued me more than a few times from waiting for taxis that never arrive.
