In Pictures: Top 25 iPhone and iPad apps for business

Apple's iPhone and iPad may have been built for consumers, but the folks in Cupertino correctly guessed that what's good for consumers is good for businesses. The only stumbling block may be the growing volume of apps available: more 140,000 natively for the iPad and over 500,000 that work on the iPhone and iPad. Here are 25 go-to iOS apps for business users, from travel planning to document editing using Microsoft Office tools to time tracking to getting a good night's sleep.

There are plenty of remote desktop apps that mirror your computer on an iPad or iPhone. Among them, PocketCloud Pro does a great job of mixing ease-of-use (once you get past a short learning curve), performance, and security. (Print the accompanying screen shot as a cheat sheet for controlling your desktop using the app.) CIOs will be comforted to know that the app supports the latest RDP protocol, 128-bit encryption, and FIPS and NLA and claims to be the only iOS app supporting CredSSP, with NTLM and Kerberos encryption levels. If your computer is set up with two displays, PocketCloud Pro will mirror them both, unlike some remote desktop apps.

    My favourite is Replicon which helps to track time more wisely. We can export our tasks and time data, sort by clients, staff or projects, and keep track of everything in the interface. The app also features reporting so we can compare tasks, projects, months or time spent at the click of a button.

    Using my iphone, I make instant payments with this application. As it takes only a matter of seconds to pay my vendors, I have a portfolio of happy vendors who look forward to doing business with me in the future.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
