 If you've reached this page, you're taking advantage of the iPad the way it should be. The iPad can be a great business tool and if you're careful, you can actually get more done with it than beating level 12 on Angry Birds Rio. 

It's fast, it's fun and if you actually get done reading every page on Reddit,  getting that last 3rd star and watching everything in your Netflix cue, you can actually be productive while you use it. 

You can do a LOT on it right out of the box, but we all know the best way to get the most out of your iPad is to get the best apps. With God  only knows how many apps our there at any given moment, it's hard to narrow it down between what you should be downloading and what it just going to make you mad and cost you time and money. That's why we decided that while we were wasting our time browsing the app store that we would go ahead and build a list that narrows it down to the best of the best. 

Without further ado, here is our top 25 list of the best iPad apps for Business, Sales and Finance. 

Oh yeah, and while your here, go and check out our sweet iPad cases!


1. Evernote

I love Evernote. Period. It's got pic-to-text recognition, you can organize everything fluidly, it's got a cool elephant logo. Honestly though, it's an app everyone should have. It will help organize your life. 

2. Skype

Call, video chat, text, sign or do whatever you feel like with your friends and clients for free with Skype. Plus, it makes international calling super cheap if you so need that function. This is a must have app. 

3. DropBox

It keeps everything you put in it accessible. It's super easy to use and you will thank me, Dropbox and God for downloading and using it the next time something crashes or you are on the road without computer access. 

4. Documents to Go

Its almost as if Microsoft built this app.....yeah right.... Seriously though, Documents to Go will help you open, edit and share your Word, Excel and Powerpoint files and folders. It works for these programs and that is really all you can ask for. 

5. Bloomberg

One seriously powerful financial tool. Keep track of the markets, manage portfolios, catch up on current events and more. If you ever plan on trading or if you just want to be in the know, you need this app. 

6. WebEx

Attend meetings like you were there, real-time multi-channel video conferencing that allows you to see everyone at once. It's enterprise level skype, it's still free and it's bad ass. 

7. Bento

Bento is a personal database of information. Keep track of clients, projects, events and more all from one spot.

8. Instapaper

If you're like me, at any given time you will have between 8 and 65 tabs open in your browser. Instapaper helps you close all of those tabs by saving and helping you organize text from webpages. 


5GB of free space to easily store whatever you would like. It's very user-friendly and helps you keep track of all of those files sitting in that fragile computer at the office. 

10. GoodReader

Should Apple have already taken care of this .PDF problem without having to get an app? Yes, yes they should have, but that is a different argument. Since they haven't, the good people at GoodReader have stepped up to give your iPad all of the .PDF function you could ever want or need. View, edit, annotate and more. 

11. Time Master + Billing

Work in the field? Keep proper track of your time and create invoices wherever you are with this app. Professional invoices and it's by-far the highest rates timekeeping app in iTunes. 

12. PrintCentral

Become the proverbial "God of Printers" with PrintCentral. This app will allow you to wirelessly print and control printers directly from your iPad. Cut the docking middle man out and print wire free.

13. Square

Accept credit cards with your iPad. It's easy to sign-up and use, they have made a great name for themselves and it's secure. If you run a stand or little shop or any sort, this app will increase your business and do so safely. 

14. ToDo

Keep your tasks in order with ToDo. It's the iPads most simple yet powerful app for productivity. Sync tasks and events seamlessly and get more done. 

15. SimpleNote

Keep your thoughts handy wherever you are. SimpleNote lets you create lists, manage tasks and gives you a place to spill your crazy and review it later. It's Simple. It's worth it. 

16. CNBC Real-Time

Great streaming quotes and up to the minute information from a trusted source in financial news. CNBC Real-Time is just that, real-time data for a hungry trader. 

17. E Trade Mobile Pro

Manage your accounts in style with E-Trade mobile pro. You know all of those sweet trading tools you hear about with E trade? Yeah, this app has them all. 

18. OmniGraffle

Throw the old napkins away. OmniGraffle for the iPad lets you create a quick diagram, process chart, page layout, website wireframe, or graphic design. This is truly a professionals app and if you need it, it's worth it. 

19. Easy Chart HD

I love apps like Easy Chart HD. It does one thing very very well, charts. Create them, view them and share them with those around you. 

20. Numbers

It's Excel for the iPad only prettier. Keep all of your spreadsheets together and kickin with Numbers for the iPad. 

21. Roambi

Keep track of your business like a boss. Roambi lets you track and view your business data in easy to understand formats. It's a great way to see where you are and where you're going. 

22. Analytics HD

This is THE app for Google Analytics. Track your websites visitors in real-time with Analytics HD. It's easy to use, easy to set-up and it will save you so much time. 

23. Penultimate

Why carry around this giant notepad if you can't keep any notes on it? Penultimate is the number 1 handwriting app on the market. Turn your tablet into...well... a tablet. Penultimate keeps all of your notes in order and makes them easy to edit and review. 

24. Dragon Dictation

Dragon Dictation may not even need an introduction. Put simply, they are the best voice recognition people in the market. Update your social networks, text, text to talk, talk to text, record notes or whatever you would like. It's handy and it will keep you in the right lane of traffic.......

25. Filemaker Go

This app lets you make files......... More importantly is what it lets you do with those files. You can create, edit and share files simply and easily. The coolest features are the digital signature features that will let you sign and close contracts digitally. Oh yeah, it also does charts. 
If you've made it through the entire list and have any funds left over, check out our iPad book cases. They are unique, handmade, well-built and they look really cool. Don't be another chump with another generic case, get something cool to carry your iPad in.
