In Pictures: 15 tablet apps for ditching dead trees

These tablet-optimised apps bring your business one step closer to going tree-free and totally mobile.


Platforms: iOS, Android (both free)

You'll never have to take a baseball bat to a fax machine again. Use the iFax app to scan documents via your tablet’s camera, then fax them directly to real fax numbers. This is similar to a document-scanning app, but you can send to fax machines rather than going through email. iFax is free to download, but powered by in-app payments: 99 cents for five pages, $1.99 for 10 pages, $2.99 for 15 pages, up to $17.99 for a one-month subscription. You can also receive faxes via iFax, though that costs $27.99/month.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
