software for Android, iTouch, iPad

here is my completely subjective and biased list

As I see it you can choose Apple problems or Windows problems

Apple is a cradle to grave mentality where things are tightly controlled to seamlessly work together. You decide if this is good/bad.

With Windows it's more of a dog eat dog world. EVERYTHING is possible leaving you open to all kinds of nasty attacks .

I won't say that it was completely intuitive to pass files back and forth between my android phone and iMac...BUT the 'droid does have an external SD card and once I figured out that it needed to be seated (insert red faced smiley) and mounted it worked a treat. It took a little more fiddling around to figure out how to read/write from the phone's internal memory to the external card.

programs I use;
-Words with Friends (scrabble like game, I sprung for the paid application) (in order to cheat on the above mentioned game :-) )
-for reading I have the Kindle app for downloading samples of books I might want to buy
-for actual reading of public domain classics I like Stanza
-I use Safari for Yahoo/Flickr (don't like the Flickr app)
-I look at the Dutch weather radar for forecasts and traffic jams (for fun and fashion)
-Sketchbook express is a terrific painting app (just the free version, can't comment on the paid)
I have some Dutch apps for the TV guide and News ( & the Telegraaf app)

I'm really new to this but so far have played with the following;
Photoshop Express
Dolphin browser
Camera 360 (nice cross processing feature)
Sketchy (see attached) offers numerous ways to get the actual painting off of the phone though

What's nice about the Android in comparison to the Touch/Pad is that you can see MP4's from Lightroom and Flash slide shows that have been written to the external SD card.

When I can wrest this away from DS/DH (they play Risk on it) I like;
to look at my Twitter account on Flipboard
We bought Artrage and it's wonderful. You can have up to 10 layers(you can change the opacity and blending modes), and there is choice of different brushes. There are multiple ways to choose colors (even off of the drawing). You can load existing images into the program for further editing. Files are saved within Artrage as pngs. It gives you the option of mailing the file as well.

Corel Paint it!

Nice paint strokes. Kinda hard to figure out. It takes a while to render but well worth it.
