    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
