In Pictures: Best iPhone, iPad business apps for 2014

Looking for iPhone and iPad business apps that can boost your productivity? These 12 lesser-known iOS downloads will help extend your mobile display to a desktop, schedule social-media updates, scan documents and much more.

Sunrise Calendar Free. Current App Store rating: 4.5 stars

No discussion of mediocre native iOS apps would be complete without throwing shade on Apple's iOS 7 Calendar app. We could write an entire slideshow on that app's failure, but instead let's focus on the alternative Sunrise Calendar. It's compatible with only Google Calendar and iCloud, unfortunately. But it integrates nicely with Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, LinkedIn and Google Maps. If you have an appointment with someone you're connected to on LinkedIn, for example, Sunrise shows his LinkedIn profile pic. And if your appointment is offsite, you can check driving directions via Google Maps. Tempo Smart Calendar and 24me are two more free and compelling Calendar alternatives.

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.
