  • Evernote is a handy app for keeping records of meetings, brain-storming sessions and more. Users of the app can create text notes, audio clips and attach images to each file for reviewing later when the MD asks for an accurate record of all the ideas that came out of that 'blue sky thinking' session.?

    ?Notes can be tagged for easier searching and include geo-location data for mapping.

    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
