Ever since iPad debuted in 2010, app developers have tirelessly worked towards developing exciting and useful apps. At iGeeksBlog, we keep our eyes wide open to spot the best apps to make your life easier. While we have already rounded up the best lifestyle apps for iPhone, we were searched for the best apps for iPads. We have finally found the best and most fitting lifestyle apps for iPads, so here is the round-up of those apps.
1. Apple Books
Last but certainly not the least, the Apple Books app that comes in-built on your iOS device is the best app to read on if you are buried in the Apple eco-system. Because the app has a sync feature, you can sync it across all your Apple devices and enjoy reading all your favorite novels.
If you are a book lover you would understand the importance of mobility of your library and Apple Books ensures that. You could effortless carry your entire library along with you where ever you go. With a vast collection of all contemporary and classic eBooks, the iBooks is certainly my go-to app to read novels on.
2. Google Drive
We all know the storage limitations that come with affordable iPads, but that shouldn’t stop us from storing memories and other documents. Oh, and post the consumption of 5 GB on your iCloud storage you would definitely need some more additional room, and that’s were google drive steps in.
Google Drive offers a whopping 15GB of free storage per google id, which, according to me, is pretty amazing. If someone has more than one Google accounts, then their Drive storage capacity is 15 multiplied by the number of accounts that a person has. This, according to me, is the coolest feature for people who like to keep work and personal life balance.

If you have trouble waking up, then you need to have this particular lifestyle app on your iPad. I dare you that this app is definitely going to change it. Give this app a try, and I assure you that you will forget what it means to snooze your alarms and eventually be late.
Fondly known as the Devil’s alarm, Alarmy gives you different tasks that you have to accomplish to turn off the alarm. You can assign a math problem as your task or a memory game or shaking your phone for say 30 times or taking a specific picture. But none of the tasks are easy, if you think that you can keep math problem as your task, then you won’t be asked to solve 2+2 or something like that. Sleep if you can.

4. The Daily Horoscope
If you are a believer in horoscope and like reading it, then you should definitely give this app a try. Touted as the best and most accurate horoscope app for iPad, this app has the most compelling observations.
Daily horoscope has accurate every day, weekly, monthly, and yearly horoscope readings for all zodiac signs. The app also supports individual zodiac characteristics, and it also shows which signs are the most compatible and why.

5. Yahoo! Weather
Before you go out to attend any party or social gathering, check the weather conditions in your city or the place where you are going. Yahoo Weather is undoubtedly the most reliable weather app on your iPad. The app gives you accurate hourly, 5-day, and 10-day forecasts. Therefore, you can plan your small trips within or out of your country.
The weather app provides all the necessary details like wind, pressure, and chance of precipitation. Animated weather effects grab your attention while you are checking weather conditions for rain, snow, fog or heat.
Animated sunrise, sunset, wind, and pressure modules keep this app engaging. Get notifications twice in a day, so that you can be prepared for any weather.
We all go through the ‘What Should I Wear today?’ Phase every single day, and I can’t begin to thank the developers of these two apps. Stylebook and Stylebook Men are my favorite apps amongst all Lifestyle apps on iPad. The reason is quite simple. I can now pick and plan my outfits directly from my smart-device and do that all well in advance from anywhere. It has definitely made my life much more straightforward.
Although adding your clothes and other accessories on this app can be quiet a daunting task but trust me once it is done, you will get the best out of your clothes. Because you can now style them with ease and can try to be more experimental. And you would also be able to wear the clothes that you didn’t even know you had.
7. Travel Journal
As the name suggests, this app is actually a travel journal and not a regular journal. Well, the difference between the two is quite evident from their names. While you have to log everyday entries in a standard journal, you just have to record your travel experiences in this app along with your pictures.
You can turn your travel experiences in beautiful scrapbooks with stories, pictures, stamps, and maps. The app allows you to order your own personalized and unique photo book that you can have as a memory for your adventures.

8. Mr Mood
In our stressful lives, we often fail to take time out and evaluate how our day went and what we felt throughout the day. Don’t worry, I am not going to preach about how not to take stress in our lives because that is kind of inevitable. But, what I am suggesting is to keep track of your mood. Mr. Mood is one of a kind iOS lifestyle app, specially developed to log your mood and keep track of them.
With a straightforward user interface, this app looks clean and is very easy to use. You simply have to log what you felt throughout the day and then you can see if you have made any progress or not. The colorful nature of the app is sure to keep you motivated to log your mood daily. And it also doesn’t take more than a couple of seconds to log it in.
Here’s a garden diary for every plant lover. It helps you keep track of and document everything you plant. You can even add photos, notes, and more to keep track of your garden.
It’s a tool that will simplify your gardening tasks and help you stay on top of things. The app is organized into different sections like Plants, Areas, Events, Inspiration, and Friends. This helps you manage all aspects of your gardening and connect with a like-minded community.
