Let’s say that I hypothetically have access to an iPad for a month. What apps should I be loading onto it? You know what I’m into—space, disasters, pretty rocks, and hedgehogs. I’m also game for more general-purpose utility apps, random cool things, and games for the truly ludicrous amount of travel I’m doing in the next few weeks.

Also: Hi! How’s it going? Are people settling into science being hosted on Gizmodo? Anything I can do to ease the transition?
