The 11 Best Free iPad Video Apps: Showyou, ABC Player And More

Posted: Updated:

The ever-popular Apple iPad, with its wide, high-resolution screen, is a great device for watching video (better than the tiny iPhone, anyway); and yet the options for video discovery are surprisingly limited, given how tailor-made the iPad seems to be for media consumption of all kinds.

Sure, you've got YouTube for your standard viral video-viewing pleasure, iTunes for individual purchases and rentals, and Netflix and Hulu Plus for those with subscriptions. But what about for us freeloaders?

Here are eleven zero-dollar apps we found that can be quite useful both for finding new videos online and for watching them full-screen on your iPad, or hooked up to your wide-screen television at home. Just be sure you plan ahead: you'll need an Internet connection to stream the clips, as the free apps don't allow for downloads.

Enjoy, and get watching. What others should we add to our list? Send us suggestions by clicking "Add a slide" below.
