  • Apple's iPad is still very much a new category of device but there are already thousands of apps available for download to customize the tablet's functionality.?

    ?Consumer iPad apps such as games dominate the App Store but there are dedicated business apps and productivity offerings too. Here we round up 10 free iPad apps that promise to come in handy for the business user.?

    ?Lovers of remote working take note: the Citrix Receiver for iPad (shown above) enables users to access any XenDesktop or XenApp hosted application from their Apple iPad.?

    ?Users can then view, edit and interact with Windows applications, documents and data as if they were sitting at their PC - rather than in Starbucks with a grande latte...?

    Only 3 of those 10 apps are what I would consider business related, and of those 3, none of them are serious business apps. Make it a Top 5 list, include Office2-HD and you might have a winning article.

      Thank goodness we have available an Official Judge of what is business-related and what isn't. I had foolishly assumed that different items on the list would be appropriate in different areas of business. I stand corrected.

    Pretty weak list, particularly the last one.

    Drop Box is great. But can it work with Pages, Office2HD, etc.? i.e., can you open from Dropbox and store to Dropbox directly from the app? Would solve the problem that I have no Finder app on iPad
