4 Great iPad Productivity Apps


For people who want to have productivity apps on an iPad, here are some great apps I’ve been testing for a few weeks. All of these apps are great when the iPad isn’t connected to a network.

Keynote: A terrific presentation application ($9.99). This is an easy-to-use app that includes templates and themes, supports animations and transitions, autosave, and import from MSOffice. Presentations are shared via email or transferred to another computer through iTunes. Files may also be saved and shared in PDF format. Files are easily copied to the application from a hard drive or file share.

Numbers: A wonderful spreadsheet application. ($9.99). This is an easy-to-use app that includes templates, more than 250 functions, charts and graphs, and autosave. Spreadsheets are shared via email or transferred to another computer through iTunes. Files may also be saved and shared in PDF format. This is a powerful application that’s easy to use for both simple and complex spreadsheets.

Pages: Wonderful word processor for the iPad ($9.99). This app is easy-to-use, includes templates, includes a spell checker, and supports many languages. Documents automatically size to fit the iPad screen in portrait and landscape mode. Documents are shared via email or transferred to another computer through iTunes. Files may also be saved and shared in PDF format.

Goodreader: Upload and view files, including pictures, MSOffice documents (including docx and pptx) and PDF files. ($0.99). This is a great app to view and share files. Uploading files to Goodreader is easy. The app has many view options, including full-screen. Goodreader is great app to view digital content. Files are easily copied to the application from a hard drive or file share.

If you’ve used these or other productivity apps, I’d like to hear your thoughts.

    If the iPad could support note-taking, I would buy one today! My job requires copious note taking and I have used Mocrosoft One Note for several years and I love it. But my Tablet PC is not elegant like the iPad is and I would buy an iPad in a New York minute if it had an app like one note and could support a digital pen.

    Is there any hope this will happen?
