iPad Apps for Middle School Literacy Project

I will be working with a school who is instituting a one-to-one iPad project with seventh graders in January.  I am considering recommending apps from the list below. I am asking what you think about the selection, as well as any additional apps you think are essential that are not on my list or ones on the list you would not recommend. 

Thanks. I am so much smarter with your help:)
