The best office suite for iPad
So much better than the apple Pages, Keynote and all of that
The Premium version has everything – presentation, word processor, spreadsheet etc.
Premium version works straight with Dropbox
Apple’s crappy Office suite for iPad cannot open password protected docs, this one can!
Works with Office 2007 documents on iPad – Word 2007, Excel 2007, Powerpoint 2007 etc) – Apple’s ones does not!
Pay once use everywhere aka multi-device support – unlike the other options, once you buy this app you can use it on the iPhone too! (not that you want to write office documents on the phone but good for the occasional emergency adjustment)
And much more…
So are you asking there questions; “Pages vs Documents To Go on the iPad”, “Numbers vs Documents To Go on the iPad” or “Keynote vs Documents To Go for iPad… there is NO comparison!
But to be clear – you cannot/should not try to type huge docs on the iPad, and also the formatting won’t be perfect (but thats not what its about – you want to be able to take great meeting notes or touch up a few docs here and there, not replace MS Word or your laptop!)
“iAnnotate is both an elegant PDF reader and a powerful annotation tool that finally lets you work with your PDFs. You can open documents from email, sign and send out contracts, enter notes for edits, sketch diagrams, copy text, and add highlights or underline with the drag of a finger!”
I have not quite gotten comfortable yet. I thought I was productive the other day on the move but then I could not find the undo button when I needed it and it all got a bit complicated
This is an awesome app that I must admit is the only one I haven’t had to use in anger yet. I keep it though because the idea is brilliant
You can basically conduct meetings on the go (unlike the GoTo meeting setup above)
Basically, upload your most used presentations to MightyMeeting.com and any time you want you can launch and control a presentation from your phone or iPad and people in other parts of the world can follow it via the web (you can send them invites from the app as well)
PushMail is originally an iPhone app but once you have bought it it installs on the iPad as well and its well worth it
It allows you to selectively gett push notifications for some emails
The best setup is simply to have email ruls (e.g. in GMail) that forwards emails to a special address which is your custom PushMail address (you get that email address once you buy and install this software) and then you just get pinged with notifications of new mails
Very very handy (but don’t go overboard, just listen to those select few mails)
Well, we all know Skype
Even with Google Talk and Fring installed on the iPad Skype is still nice to have (Skype Out credits etc)
Just sucks that Skype don’t have a large screen iPad version of their app – it looks butt ugly and I am sure they can do something more useful with the larger screen
Nearly everyone who uses Twitter a lot knows about TweetDeck, its just a more slick and feature rich twitter client
That’s about it… there could almost have been 20 top apps on the list instead of 19…. my favourite “to-be” app was LinkedIn but it just sucks that its still not made for the large screen iPad (and while Skype and few other apps might be o.k. having the iPhone app upscaled on the “big” iPad screen, LinkedIn on the iPad really looks crap.
