Crunching numbers in a spreadsheet may not be a favorite pastime, but sometimes you can't avoid it. Numbers by Apple is a Retina Display optimized app that makes spreadsheet work as easy as it can on the iPad. The app can handle many Microsoft Excel spreadsheets for those needing to work with those files.
When a full word processing app is the call of the day, Pages by Apple is as good as any. The app is optimized beautifully for the Retina Display of the new iPad, and is full-featured while being easy to use. It can handle most Microsoft Word documents for those needing that ability.
Frequent travelers will find a valuable personal assistant in TripIt Pro. The iPad app and online service work together to present good itineraries for trips with all the important information in one place. The integrated maps are a great touch, making it possible to find your way around your scheduled events in unfamiliar territory.
