Dropbox and Box have made file access on iOS a pleasure, much more so than iCloud, though in a very different way (you can’t beat, or even use, iWork apps without iCloud on iOS). As speculation about a more integrated cloud-based file system in Mountain Lion tantalizes the Apple Technorati, Microsoft dropped a new version of SkyDrive that delivers a high capacity, cross-platform file storage solutions that works right now.
The Tapose app is a nice productivity app for your iPad which really brings the features from many other apps together into this one great app. It has a collaboration feature which allows you to work with other people on a project; it allows you to use multiple different programs such as word processors, drawing apps, web pages, business cards and much more. You can use them all to create different types of documents or files or combine them all to create multi-media presentations. This is a great app for anyone who loves working on the go, whether it's on a bus hotel room or train this app will help you make the best use of your time no matter where you are.
PowerPoint is the perfect application for an iPad. Graphical in orientation with messages simplified to the point of contention and very photographic in its organization. But Microsoft's ambivalence toward the platform meant it was left to third parties to create the PowerPoint experience for the iPad. With version 4.5 of Quickoffice Pro HD, Quickoffice users can now edit native PowerPoint files. Well, sort of.
Considering how many apps are available in the Apple app store, not to mention how many are actually on my iPhone (close to 300), it's a bit daunting of a task to come up with only 10 apps to recommend here and now! There are simply so many amazing and award-winning apps out there and each is suited to an individual uniquely.
is a 3D physics/puzzle game that is a beauty to behold on the iPad, but before I give my review, I have to do a mini-review of the awesomely redesigned SugarSync (which is not a game--sorry about that). The old version of SS (a cloud file syncing app--reviewed here
), was not well suited to iPad, but the coders have fixed that in their recent upgrade! So before I tell you how great Fibble is, I want to tell you how great SugarSync
I like to Mindmap. I organize my life, my writing and my projects with mindmaps. And ThinkBuzan, the software arm of mindmap inventor Tony Buzan, has just released what may be the ultimate experience for mind mappers: iMindMap Freedom. Before Freedom, iMindMap was an OK app on iOS and a pretty substaintial authoring environment on the Mac and PC.
