So I have joined the 2010s and bought an iPad. Please help me outfit it with apps.

I'm want recommendations for a few specific things (see below), but I'd also love to hear general recommendations for apps that you love in any category (productivity; games; cooking/food; or anything, really).
* Twitter: what's the best Twitter app for managing multiple accounts (personal and work). I use TweetDeck on my laptop and currently have a dozen or so columns that I use to manage my employer's Twitter account. I don't expect to be able to duplicate that on the iPad, but the ability to manage both accounts and easily call up one of my lists or saved hashtag searches would be great.
* Email: I'd like to keep my personal email (Gmail) and work email in separate apps for better work/life balance. Right now I'm using the Gmail app for personal and the Mail app for work, but I'm not in love with either of them. I don't like how the inbox slides in and out on the right in both apps. Are there any other fantastic mail apps?
* Weather: what's a good weather app? I was surprised there wasn't one preinstalled.
* Are there any local Austin apps I should check out?
* Should I buy AppleCare+ for iPad
