The iPad has become very popular all around the world, including in Canada. If you are Canadian and you own an iPad you have the possibility to install a few apps that are useful only for you.
For instance, Hootsuite is a free Canadian app designed for the iPad that comes with a user friendly interface and plenty of tools. This app connects users to Facebook, FourSquare and Twitter. It also offers a read later service, Instapaper and the possibility to track link stats from within the interface. You will also be able to use various keywords and hashtag to search for the needed information and translate a tweet to 50 languages.
Another Canadian iPad app that you must install on your device is Kik which is a free messaging app that allows you to send free text messages to your friends from all around the world. This app offers a simple and intuitive interface and plenty of useful features. It can even provide support for push messages and landscape typing. The only thing that you need to remember is that your friends need to have Kik on their smartphones if you don’t want to pay a fee when you send a message.
You should also consider the mobile version of “The Globe and Mail” newspaper which is a Canadian national news source. This app comes with a polished user interface and allows you to access a wide variety of articles that cover politics, sports, travel, technology and not only. These articles are organized in categories and some listed as breaking news. You also have the opportunity to bookmark your favorite articles for later reading
CityTV Video is another Canadian app that needs to be on your iPad. This app provides direct access to TV shows such as Modern Family or 30 Rock directly on your tablet. You will be able to view not only full episodes, but also interviews and video clips. This free app also notifies you when your favorite TV show is scheduled to start and gives you the opportunity to watch live the morning show Breakfast Television.
I can’t forget about Timmy Me which is a great coffee finder app designed for the iPad. If you didn’t know, Canadians have a strange obsession with Tim Hortons coffee, so this app is definitely vital for Canadians because it’s designed to find the closest Tim Horton stores based on your current location. It displays accurate details about the stores found including address, phone number and directions to get there.
These are only a few of the best Canadian apps designed for the iPad that might help you if you are travelling to Canada. Also useful is MoodFood.
