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.

Scanner Pro $6. Current App Store rating: 4.5 stars

A portable scanner is helpful when you travel, but it's another device to lug. If you need to digitize documents, including contracts, receipts and business cards, a better option is to use your iPhone or iPad camera as a scanner. Scanner Pro is among the best apps for the task. Scans are saved as PDFs and can be emailed or uploaded to Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote or another cloud service and then synced to other iOS devices via iCloud. The app scans well with automatic edge detection, but lacks optical character recognition (OCR). For that, consider CamScanner. (The basic app is free, OCR is available in the $50 per year premium version.)

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.
