Are you looking for the appropriate applications to manage your business with your iPad apps? We are enlisting a number of apps to help you out. In our previous post, we talked about the simple in-built iPad apps that help you get organized and manage your to-do list. It is time to take a step ahead and understand some advanced iPad apps. These applications are focused towards accessing your documents, analyzing the progress and making important notes. We would also tell you the available apps that allow you to discuss with your colleagues in a whole new way. Shall we begin?
We always want to stay connected with our documents, files and folders because professionals do not accept a compromise on their productivity. We look for applications that allow easy access to them anytime from anywhere. You can now enjoy writing your sales proposal while you are waiting for someone in the restaurant, you can approve and sign a contract while you are on vacations with your family, and you can easily review any business document while your resting on your couch! This is because iPad works with the advanced Wi-Fi and 3G wireless technologies. You can view, create, edit and delete your files just by a simple tap, zoom in with the multi-touch technology and view it as a snap. You can send and receive your documents via Mail application. Synchronize your documents via desktop applications like DropBox; all you need to do is to drag and drop your files in the drop box folder and it will automatically synchronize all your files when it gets an internet connection. Besides this, you can also avail the facility of SharePoint Mobile Client application to securely access the content on corporate servers. You will be delighted to know that you have a handful of applications that let you play with the PDF files since it is the most widely used format for transference of official documents. These apps include iBooks, iAnnotate PDF and Good Reader for iPad.
2- Discuss Anywhere:
Are you the one who comes up with the new ideas every now and then? Do you enjoy discussing with your colleagues in the hall way? You can now brain storm your ideas even in the café in a visually compelling way. Use SyncSpace to turn your iPad into visual whiteboard and create free hand drawings. These drawings are synchronized in real time through SyncSpace servers and your co-workers can immediately see what you are doing via live internet feed. They can also add to these drawings through their devices and finally, you can save your work as PDF. If you don’t appreciate disclosing your idea before finishing it completely, you may give SketchBook Pro a try. This pro-app comes with a number of tools to create smooth brush strokes, customize color swatches, work with layers and turn your sketch into a professional looking illustration. E-mail the final design to your colleagues or save it in your photos. If your design is more understandable through charts, then you should go for OmniGraffle application. OmniGraffle has many built-in templates, shapes and stencils that help you assemble your chart quickly.
3- Analyze your Progress:

Just download MicroStrategy Mobile application that helps you view, analyze, manipulate, and share business data on your iPad. It supports a variety of data systems including data warehouses, ERP systems, MDX cubes and operational databases. You can change the parameters to see different aspects and identify problems. You would appreciate the sign up facility for personalized alerts and specify the reports you would like to see. It sends you an alert if sales forecast is high for entire region along with a report.

4- Make Notes:
We have already talked about it in our last post but we will present some more applications that let you jot down your notes in a better way. The Notes built-in app keeps a track of your typing and suggests words, correct spelling, inserts punctuations and adjusts the orientation and layout automatically. Use applications like Penultimate and Notes Plus to stylize your notes by specifying pen and paper color, line thickness, transparency and font. Let us reveal the most interesting application for taking notes…Dragon Dictation. Use the built in microphone and this voice recognition application allows you to dictate notes. Tap to record and get your notes ready. Combine your notes and email them to your friends and co-workers.
We will wrap it up now and will keep the other applications to be discussed on some other day.
