iPadI purchased my iPad last year with the intention of taking it with me to the IVAA Summit as I just didn’t want to lug around my heavy 17” MacBook through the airport. Now I was a bit nervous if I would be able to manage with just the iPad for the week that I would be out of the office, but the iPad did not let me down. I did have an emergency client project that came up and I was able to log in to my iMAC at the office via logmein, download the file into DropBox and edit the file using the Pages app. Now when I have to travel, either for business or for a quick getaway, my iPad is with me and I am able to handle anything that comes my way.

Some of my favorite apps are:

  • DropBox for accessing files
  • Gmail for checking my email
  • Pages, Numbers and Keynote for editing Word, Excel or PowerPoint files
  • Kindle for reading books, magazines and newspapers
  • LogMeIn or TeamViewer for accessing my main computer
  • Evernote allows me to view my stored notes allowing me to work on articles on the road
  • YouSendIt allows me to send large files
  • WordPress for doing any quick updates on a client or my website
  • iAnnotatePDF for viewing and editing PDF files
  • Facebook, Twitter and Hootsuite for monitoring my social media sites
  • USAToday for the latest news
  • Flipboard which combines all your newsfeeds into one app
  • Hipmunk for searching flights and hotels
  • Catalog Spree for perusing through the catalogs that usually flood your mailbox
  • For entertainment, Scrabble and Paper Toss

    I am an avid TeamViewer user myself. I use it for my clients for my business My Computer Doctor – – I love the fact that even with slow internet connections such as DSL I can still do my job with ease. Thanks for the article!
