I have written about apps by this developer before. Intersog writes interactive educational apps for the business community. They are very extensive and well worth the $20 normal price. There are a couple of their apps available for free. I am not sure for how long they will remain free so hurry.

Using an iPad to access a desktop computer remotely is a great boon to travelers. LogMeIn Ignition has been available for some time for the iPad and iPhone.

After that it costs $10 per month for a single user, or $100 per year. The LogMeIn app costs $29.99.

I chatted with Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite for iPad at Macworld 2011. You can get a quick tour of the app by watching the video. I’ve been using this app for awhile, and I learned a few new skills just by watching this quick demo from the floor, so check it out.

You can create and edit Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations with this updated app.  PowerPoint was the missing ingredient until December of 2010. I create a lot of PowerPoints and this update made this app a go-to on my iPad for work.

Can your iPhone Run a Database App?

FileMaker Go makes it possible

It was 1982 when dBASE first appeared in computer stores. At the time, I was pretty busy with FireFile, which later went on to become LapLink when the term “laptop” was eventually coined. dBASE was a simple data management tool for personal computers, but it included a scripting language that made it possible to build some relatively complex and comprehensive applications.

A key advantage to dBASE was its “late binding” architecture. This simply means that the scripts are interpreted when the user actually runs the application. These interpretive database apps require a “run-time” core and the scripts that form the basis of the application.

Enterprise Mobility Overhaul: Lessons Learned

MobilityTableIn life, a second chance is rare. In the mobile space, it's becoming the norm. The reason for this is the pace of technological evolution. Emerging technologies produce gains in productivity that make existing systems obsolete. As a consequence, the life cycle of systems is decreasing rapidly. In fact, over the last four years my team has completely overhauled our mobility infrastructure, twice.

A decoupled mobile architecture where each component is independent

The first time, four years ago, was due to obsolescence.

The Inevitability of the iPhone in the Enterprise

Welcoming Change While Protecting the Enterprise

PicturingInfrastructureThe information technology field in an enterprise means constant change. It means that new gadgets come and go on an almost annual basis and that we frequently have to look at industry-wide changes. Many IT departments are built around the idea that a solid command and control structure can keep users from harming their devices and therefore keep support costs down.

Picturing the infrastructure

The iPhone is cool. Apple has spent a lot of time developing a device that is both a feature-rich platform and simple to use.
