What's the Best Business App for the iPad?

By

My lovely wife bought me an iPad 2 for my birthday at the end of February. I was so excited and spent the rest of that day playing with it, downloading apps and generally being anti-social notwithstanding the fact that we had a housefull of guests. 

After my wife complained that she had only seen the top of my head since lunch, one of our friends reminded her that it was she who had "invited Hagar into the camp." Nothing like an Old Testament reference to add hilarity to 21st century gagetry.

Was I happy with the gift? Extremely....that is until Apple scheduled a March 7 huge announcement that all watchers were sure was the next generation of iPad. I could keep the 2 or I could take it back and upgrade to the 3 or at least get another 2 at a discount.

I took it back and then spent the next 2 weeks like the un-gadgeted loser that I had previously been. How did I function back then?

I pre-ordered the iPad 3 and eagerly picked it up on March 16 - last Friday. But I was good and put priorities where priorities belong. I hardly used it the rest of that day or evening.

Now the dilemma for which I need your input - What is the Best Business App for the iPad? 

So far I have downloaded the following:

All my email accounts, Apple Store, Overdrive, Evernote, CNN, Pandora, Dropbox, the Bible (YouVersion), LoopNet, PluggedIn, Skype, Kindle, LinkedIn, Facebook, Fandango, Redbox, DocScan HD, Shazam, Dallas Business Journal, CNN, Calculator Pro, Google Earth, OpenTable, NBC, Dictionary, NPR and Angry Birds.

Okay, so some of those stretch the definition of Business Apps just a little. But I'm sure they will all be useful in some way soon.

So what is your advice? The best app to increase business sales or productivity? Especially for a commercial tenant rep. I await your sage advice.

Hi Bob, you might want to try AnywherePad. Basically, it's a mobile solution for meetings, real-time document sharing, and collaboration. As a commercial tenant rep, you can use AnywherePad to conduct meetings and discuss with clients from anywhere. Moreover, it is integrated with a cloud-based portal that allows users (your clients) to instantly access documents and meetings.

John,

Thanks so much for the suggestion on AnywherePad. It sounds like EverNote, but with a client sharing feature as well. I'll check it out. Thanks again.
