iPad Apps For SMBs: The List Grows

InformationWeek SMB: iPad Apps For SMBs – The List Grows

From e-mail to printing to business social media to productivity tools, IW SMB picks the 18 best applications that indicate iPad could be a viable business tool rather than an overgrown iPod.

“The jury’s still out on exactly what the iPad is good for-is it just an overgrown iPod Touch? (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) Is it a netbook substitute? Or is it the “magical and revolutionary product” Apple claims, something that will forever change the way we work and play?

While we’re waiting for the answer, we still have to get work done. And for that we need apps. There aren’t nearly as many iPad apps as iPhone apps available… yet. As of early April, according to mobile ad exchange firm Mobclix, there were more than 3,000 iPad-specific apps in the App Store, compared to the more than 150,000 iPhone/iPod Touch apps claimed by Apple. But among these early entrants, we’ve managed to find 18 that will make the device a useful tool for SMBs already.”
