There’s no shortage of apps for the iPad, so it’s a good idea to scale things down a little and focus the selection of top iPad app picks on a particular demographic. The young, professional, UK homeowner no doubt owns an iPad and perhaps uses it on the weekends to touch base with world and national developments as well as to delve a little further into his or her personal interests. The following four iPad app suggestions are perfect for helping this professional enjoy the finer things in life.


The Homestyler iPad app lets you bring your interior design ideas to life. You take a photo of the room you are looking to renovate and from there you can test out various design ideas until you achieve the look you have been dreaming of. You can swipe the screen to test out different colours on the walls, you can place 3D products and furniture items in the space, change light fixtures, communicate with professional designers who live in your area and share your designs via social networks so that people can comment on your ideas.


The ProTube iPad app is perfect for YouTube addicts. The basic features available when searching via YouTube are included in this iPad app, which means that accessing your YouTube account is incredibly easy. Downloads are unlimited and the app allows you to sort and file all content into handy folders. The app also makes it really easy to create playlists which can be streamed to another device using a Wi-Fi connection. This can be really handy for people who love being able to access music and video files when on the move.

Food Network In the Kitchen

Food Network in the Kitchen is the perfect iPad app companion for those people who love to cook, learn new recipes and invite people to dine at their homes. The app shares recipes which make use of tempting photos and fun videos as part of the instructions. It’s also really easy to search for recipes by indicating a particular ingredient you are looking to use or a chef you are inspired by. There’s a particularly useful section in the app which is devoted entirely to the user and which allows them to make personal cooking notes and individual meal planners.

Movies by Flixster

Movies is a simple iPad app which allows the user to watch trailers, check movie dates and times, read up on audience ratings and reserve seat in the nearest cinemas. It’s not as flash or cool as some of the other examples of cinema iPad apps, but the focus clear and quality is high.

GuidePal Offline City Guides

People who love to travel must download the GuidePal iPad app. It’s full of travel tips for city lovers all over the world, most notably covering a wide range of cities in Latin America and Europe. It’s full of information, ideas and inspiration for quick getaways and longer city breaks. It’s a great resource to have in your iPad whether you have travelled extensively or not.
