Ever since the iPad came out, I’d been lusting for it. Finally, early this year, I won one in an affiliate contest:
I’ve found the iPad 2 to be pleasurable to use. It’s much faster to open up the iPad than fire up my laptop or desktop computers to check my email and social networking accounts. It comes in especially handy when I’m having insomnia. I can read in bed without turning on a lamp.
Now I’d really like to maximize the iPad 2 for completing my work. But I don’t know which apps would be best for what. I’ve been exploring the Apps store and reading various blog posts. However, I often end up thoroughly confused after reading the reviews
The iPad Apps I Use Most Frequently
So far, here are the work-related apps I’ve downloaded so far:
- WordPress – Free app for WordPress blogs. I love being able to approve comments and write/edit posts from this app. However, it doesn’t let me edit comments. Neither can I format the post, which is extremely frustrating. I’m willing to pay for a blogging app. It’s a toss-up between BloggerPlus and Blogsy.
- PlainText – Great for writing pieces when I don’t want any formatting codes to be included.
- MyPad – This Facebook app is great in general. Just a couple of complaints: 1. I can’t tag my friends on my comments. 2. Pictures I upload are always the wrong orientation. I have to log into my Facebook account on the web to rotate the pictures properly. Ugh.
- HootSuite – Excellent app for Twitter. The free version has all the features I need.
- Atomic Web – I discovered this web browser app from a blog, and I’m very happy with it.
- Dropbox – Awesome app. Now I can access my most important files on my iPad.
- Evernote – I use this same app on all my computers, so I thought it makes sense to install it on the iPad as well. However, I haven’t used the iPad version yet, so I don’t know how useful this is.
- G-Whizz! – I downloaded this only because I wanted to be able to access my Google calendar and docs. However, this app is capable of so much more. It’s a one-stop app for social networks, Google reader and other Google apps. Not sure I’ll ever use all those features.
