It’s a good day to be an iPad.AppStorm reader, not only is this the week of the iPad announcement, but we have a bonus competition for you! We reviewed PDFpen from Smile less than a week ago and Chris had some great things to say.

PDFpen is a powerhouse when it comes to both editing and marking up PDF documents, and it’s hard to believe that this high level of functionality comes from an iPad application.

PDFpen is a powerful PDF editor that provides a wide variety of markup and editing features. With PDFpen, it’s possible to highlight text, add PDF comments, or even change a pesky typo in the original PDF. Read on to find out how to enter!

Do you love iPad apps? Are you always on the look-out for the latest and greatest iOS software to work faster, be more productive, and enjoy your free time? You sound like the type of iPad expert that we’d love to have on our team!

We’re always on the look out for fantastic new writers across the AppStorm network, but we’re particularly wanting to find a few new contributors to iPad.AppStorm over the next few days. All our writing positions are paid, and we’ll work with you to choose apps to review and suggest article ideas.

If you’re passionate about writing and can’t get enough of your iPad, we’d love to hear from you. Register your interest here, and we’ll be in touch!

Do you like Safari on your iPad? Really?

I’ll admit that it is pretty quick, but that doesn’t make up for the dire lack of extensions – I just want to be able to use 1Password, is that so much to ask?

The question today is, would you use a different default browser on your iPad if you could? You can freely use a whole multitude of different browsers on the iPad, but not being able to set them as the default makes things awkward. That little settings change could mean so much.

You could have that gesture based browser you love always pop up when you click a link in your email, you could even use a browser that supports Flash as your default!

I’ve got a feeling that most people aren’t too fussed about the default browser, and the fact that Safari is pretty good helps to keep people from investigating the other options. But maybe I’m wrong, would you change the default browser if you could?

Text editors are a dime a dozen on the App Store, so it’s always a pleasure to find one that’s a little different! Phraseology is a text editor that offers a powerful set of language tools. Users can easily rearrange text, look up words, and inspect word usage for repetition or reading difficulty. We reviewed Phraseology at the end of January and gave it 9/10!

Phraseology is an absolute joy to use. It took some time to adjust to the sandy colors, but the app’s unique and powerful features are game changers for anyone looking for an app that does more with language.

Apple today sent out invites to journalists for their annual iPad event. This year, the event will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on March 7th at 10:00 AM Pacific Time. Accompanying the invitations, Apple included the traditional image, which reads “We have something you really have to see. And touch.”

While there has been a great deal of speculation regarding this device in the past few months, there are a few things that have remained the same in most of them. Hit the break to see some detailed information on what Apple’s next-generation tablet may include.

What’s the latest iPad rumor? Well there are a ton of them going around nowadays, what with a rumored event happening March 7th and all that, but one of the hot tickets is that Microsoft Office is coming to the iPad. Don’t believe it? Well there’s a picture, a story on The Daily and a journalist who’s fighting pretty hard to prove that he’s right. And, as they say, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

But what does this mean for the iPad? Do we really need Office or is it just a crutch for people who think they need it? Talk it out after the jump.

Let’s not beat around the bush, we’re going to be getting an iPad 3 (of some sort) in March. The specifics are harder to determine, but that they’ll be sought after is pretty much a given – expect Apple fan queues to be featured on evening news broadcasts!

The question I’d like to ask today is, unsurprisingly, will you be getting an iPad 3? Have you already sold you iPad 2 in desperate anticipation, have you prepped your camping gear?

Or, alternatively, are you unfazed by the whole thing, perfectly happy with your current iPad and planning not to get involved in the expected frenzy?

There is, I suspect, actually a third camp in this situation. Those people who haven’t yet decided and are letting the impressive (or not?) new features make their minds for them, people who desire a retina display (likely) or LTE connectivity (less likely) before parting with their cash.

Let us know in the comments the factors influencing your decision!

iAnnotate is a great app for reading, annotating, and sharing PDFs. Use it to improve your productivity, reduce your clutter, and go paperless! If features an extensive set of tools for taking notes, annotating and more.

We’re soon to have a review of the app here on AppStorm, but in the meantime here’s a chance for three lucky readers to get their hands on it. Read on to find out how!

Three services dominate the read later category. They are Instapaper, Read It Later, and Readability. Instapaper and Read It Later have been around the longest but Readability has been gaining a lot of transaction ever since the service was released last year and re-branded with a free service this year. I have mostly been an Instapaper user over the last couple of years but have looked at Read It Later every so often, and I wanted to take a look at all three services to determine if I still am happy with Instapaper as my read it later app of choice!

Read later services take articles, content, and websites, and let you save items in a queue for you to read later. The services will strip out all of the ads and weird formatting to leave you with just text. Instapaper and Read It Later download these articles to your iPad so you can read them offline as well.
