Over on Twitter, the LIfework team has started a Twtpoll asking, "Which iPad apps are helping you be more productive at work?" After much deliberation, and after coming back empty handed on launch day, Cerentha is about to pick up her 1st new iPad and she's looking for recommendations for apps that readers find useful on a day to day basis for work related tasks. And, no, Angry Birds doesn't count...
My husband is chief technology officer in the family. He's my IT guy and general wizard when it comes to things you plug in (thankfully not in that weird Charlie Sheen wizard way). He is also a serious early adopter. I only realized how much I appreciated that when he decided we really should wait for the second generation iPad to come out. What!? We were going to have to wait for that gorgeous piece of design? Yep. Surely I need it for work. Surely. But after much discussion we agreed to wait. And the wait seemed eternal.
Tomorrow we have a date at the Apple store It's our 11th wedding anniversary and we're going to treat ourselves to the iPad 2. Romantic? For some, no. For us, yes! And let's hope there are still some in stock. I am too old to camp out so we definitely wont be first in line at 5am when the store opens. I called Apple to find out if there was anything we could do to 'book' one and the guy just laughed at me. I even tried the wedding anniversary line and he wasn't buying it. We'll just have to line up like everyone else.
Let's say that we will have that iPad in our hot little hands tomorrow. I would really like to know what apps you use. Which ones help your work life run more smoothly? I use Simplenote but there's got to be so much more out there. Take the Twtpoll and I will report back in a week or so the results. Hopefully we'll have a great list of apps to share.
