Perhaps Santa brought you a new iPad for Christmas, and you're already tired of that first round of essential apps you loaded on it. Here's a batch of new stuff to get you excited about your toy, from a classic game, to a children's app, and more.
CBS Connect: You have theories on your favorite TV shows—you can hash them out for CBS shows in this second-screen app, which lets you talk to other fans as well as stars, and see some extras like video, pictures, and back stories. BRB, obsessing over How I Met Your Mother. Free
Hundreds: This is a game that requires you to be agile and think spatially. Tap moving circles to make them bigger but make sure your finger isn't on them when they bump into each other. You've got to get to 100 points before the volatile red orbs collide or you lose. $3
