Top 10 Best iPad Business Applications

Paulsipad.com updated his Top 10 Best iPad Apps a while back. My list is significantly different, probably because my job is quite different, so I thought I would publish my list. These apps, except numbers 6 and 10, I feel pretty passionate about. That is, I like to use them and without them, I wouldn’t be using my iPad for business.

The apps are listed in order of importance.

1) GoodReader – As I mentioned in my post on GoodReader, this is more than just a reading application. It is a file system for the iPad. More details in the post Goodreader Essential Application for Business Use of iPad.

2) Sugarsync – Automatically all my work files from my laptop are sync’d to a cloud server and available from the iPad. More details on my previous post, Sugarsync Essential iPad Business APP.

3) Toodledo – My personal and business task management application.

4) Evernote – Great for taking notes just about anywhere. Has a Mac and […]

I recently wrote an article which described how I picked SugarSync as my primary application for sharing data and cloud storage of my files. In this article I will cover more about SugarSync and how I implemented the online storage program to not only create a great way to get files on my iPad when I am traveling, but to also create a way to sync files between my work computer and home computer. Oh ya, I can also use it to read PDF and many other file formats.

First a little about my computing environment. I have a Dell PC Laptop for work. Two weeks after I received my iPad 3G I chained the PC Laptop to my desk at work and it hasn’t been moved since. At home I have a Mac Pro which also has Windows XP running on VMware. I have […]

iPad Day 1 – Access to Files While On the Go

For the iPad to become my primary travel business device i must be able to access my files. I purchased the 64G version of the iPad to make sure I had enough storage for everything on my laptop, however getting the files on to the iPad was a bit of a trick. Sure there are several ways to make this happen but which one would solve the problem in the way I wanted it to work.

What I want is the ability to automatically sync files to the iPad from my desktop Mac and laptop PC. If a file is changed on any one of the three platforms (Mac, PC or iPad), the file is change on the other two platforms, automatically.

I downloaded Goodreader and PDF Reader Pro first. These both allow you to download files when you are tethered to a computer, but only as files. That is, you can’t tell it to load an entire directory. This isn’t going to work for me. They also allow you to connect to the iPad over your wireless network, mounting it like a network drive. This will allow you to copy entire directories. I tried three or four more of these types […]
