Dropbox for iPad(free) is out and the reviews are pretty good.  Dropbox, if you don’t have it already, is 2.2GB of free space in the cloud that syncs with a folder in your Mac or PC’s Home directory.  Using Dropbox for iPhone/iPad/iPod touch allows you to view these files on your iProduct.  For instance, a Powerpoint in your dropbox folder can be opened in your iPad in Keynote. 

Also, when you favorite a file, it stores that file locally on your iPad.  The only flaws include lackluster PDF viewing and inability to zoom pictures.  We’re hoping to see those improved in the next version..
