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.

PrintCentral Pro $10. Current version average rating: 3.5 stars Separate apps for iPhone and iPad

PrintCentral Pro

Printing from an iOS device is more complicated than it should be. PrintCentral Pro takes some of the sting out. To print, you launch the app, navigate to your Dropbox, iCloud or other documents, and print. Unfortunately, PrintCentral Pro doesn’t allow you to print documents directly from Apple's Pages, Numbers, and Keynote apps. The workaround is to email the documents to yourself and use PrintCentral Pro's email client to open the files. (I told you printing from iOS is too complicated.) Beyond printing, the app lets you convert files to PDF, zip and unzip files, remotely share files with Macs and PCs, save web pages as PDFs, and more. Note: PrintCentral ($5) and PrintCentral Pro ($9) are separate iPhone apps.
