  • Popplet Lite brings a distinct graphical style to the spidergram - and hopefully makes brainstorming sessions a lot more pleasant (and legible) in the process. Plus if your ideas turn out to be a little uninspiring they will at least look great.?

    ?The Popplet Lite app allows just the one spidergram to be created - the paid-for version of the app enables multiple spidergrams, plus online syncing.

  • Tired of getting in a tangle when trying to firm up dates? Swipe the slider and this app displays the dates of each Monday and Sunday in the year. Past and future dates can also be conjured up with ease - going back as far as 1971 and forward to 2026.

    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.

    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
