Robin Good: I feel that curated selections of “apps” by a trusted source is definitely an area where people will be willing to pay to get good advice while saving time and money to choose what tools to use on their new iPad.
The new interesting aspect is that the availability of different apps and software has
increased so much that the ability for someone to provide reliable advice and selection of what is really useful and effective becomes by itself a valuable and monetizable service.
“AppStart is the first app to download on your iPad: An app starter kit with all the essential apps you’ll ever need.
AppStart takes a fresh and fun approach to teach the average Joe (or insert your name here) how to become more familiar with his/her iPad and apps. NO THIS IS NOT A BORING MANUAL. We’ll fill you on the basic things that everyone should know, and then get you started with the best apps for you.
Throughout the app you’ll find special sections that tell you apps you’ll need to turn your iPad into a specific kind of tool. You’ll also be given a list of the essentials apps for certain types of user (lawyers, teachers, musicians, moms, dads, etc). If you see something that sounds interesting to you, click it! We’ll give you the exact set of apps to download and you’ll be on your way, no need to scour the top charts in the App Store.”
