Business Apps for iPad

The iPad is receiving a warm welcome from developers and business users.

Although security concerns slow its adoption, the iPad has enormous potential as an organizational, creative and communication tool for business. Two new book excerpts from the informative and entertaining Dummies series have been uploaded to the Knowledge Network to help IT pros capitalize (pun intended, of course) on this potential.


The "<strong>iPad at Work" excerpt (chapter 12) from "iPad for Dummies</strong>" shows you how to organize information and boost productivity using the popular tablet computer. In this chapter, you'll learn how to perform Calendar tasks, create and sync Notes, get iPad to work with Microsoft Exchange and use popular iWork apps.


"iPad Application Development for Dummies" encourages everyone from seasoned software developers to enthusiastic amateurs to get in on the "gold rush" of App Store development. Living up to the promise of its title, "Ten Tips on iPad App Design" provides top insights on how to create and optimize your app to increase its chances for success. The No. 1 design tip? Create a unique, inviting icon that catches the eye and represents the function of the app well.


Whether you've just bought an iPad and are trying to figure out how to sync your Exchange info, or if you're ready to dive into the world of app development, use these tips and hints to put iPad to work, for work.
