In Pictures: 7 hot iPad apps for business

From Web conferencing to to-do lists, a growing legion of business apps built for the mobile workforce are finding favor with iPad devotees

Cisco WebEx for iPad and iPhone Cisco’s mobile Web-conferencing software has gained traction among iPad enthusiasts. “Having WebEx on the tablet makes it easy to accomplish my work regardless of where I am,” says Nancy Crouch, deputy CIO at Wake Forest University. “The video and audio quality are excellent.” Crouch does find WebEx on the tablet somewhat confining, though. “The WebEx experience on a laptop or desktop is a more full-featured experience.”

Another user stressed collaboration. “We use Cisco’s desktop WebEx extensively for all collaborative data-sharing project needs,” says James Brogan, director of technology at Kohn Peterson Fox Associates. “Expanding this technology to the iPad has been a natural extension to our collaboration technologies. We can now collaborate remotely, from clients’ offices, building sites, hotel rooms, [or] home.”

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
