Last Modified: 2012-05-11
The company I work for recently made a pretty big investment by purchasing a few hundred Ipads to be used for business. I have had an Ipad for a while and know of a few useful apps but im looking for suggestions that I might not have realized.

This question goes out to anyone who has a reccomendation for useful business apps.

Hi xxdcmast,

What kind of business?  That really helps narrow the field down.

Off the top of my head, I can't imagine not needing Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for most people for document manipulation.  I'm a big fan of using DropBox and DropDav to move files back and forth from the iPad without needing to get iTunes involved too.  Evernote is also useful for clipping etc.

iBooks is a must for PDF reading and annotation.  For real markup-based annotations of PDF, look into smartNote


We are mainly a project management firm, however there are many different departments that will be using these ipads. For example we have marketing, accounting, IT, engineering, etc staff on payroll.

Im just trying to get ideas and possibly test some of these apps for when we finally roll out the Ipads.
