    I saw an thread for apps for I.T. And I was think maybe we should have one for business use? Like Keynote, Good Reader and what they are for? Since Im so new to the iPad, those are the only two I know off. =/ Maybe some of you guys can add to it.

    Keynote : Create presentation right on your iPad. Keynote is PowerPoint compatible and can read .ppt and .pptx files and save in .ppt and .pdf
    Good Reader : PDF reader, with ability to store hyperlink.
    Pages: Word Processor. Pages is Word compatible and can read .doc and .docx files and save in .doc and .pdf
    Numbers: Spreadsheet. Numbers is Excel compatible and can read .xls and .xlsx files and save in .xls and .pdf
    Office2HD: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-apps/26326-office2hd.html
    Quick Office: from their site "Quickoffice is the essential Microsoft® office productivity tool for your iPad. "
    Doc to go: from their site "Documents To Go is an all-in-one application with support for Microsoft® Word, Excel & PowerPoint, PDF, Apple iWork and other files and attachments. It includes a desktop application (Win and Mac) to provide 2-way file synchronization and a version with support for Google Docs, Box.net, Dropbox, iDisk and SugarSync is also available."

    To go along with Keynote, complete the triple threat with Pages and Numbers.

    Pages: Word Processor.
    Numbers: Spreadsheet.

    This is what one of our members suggested

    IPF notes Office info


    One of our members carried out a survey of Office apps for his company; you can see his conclusions in this thread...

    The Apple iWorks Office suite for the iPad has a set of useful Help pages that show their capabilities.

    Pages is Word compatible and can read .doc and .docx files and save in .doc and .pdf

    Keynote is PowerPoint compatible and can read .ppt and .pptx files and save in .ppt and .pdf

    Numbers is Excel compatible and can read .xls and .xlsx files and save in .xls and .pdf

    Bloomberg has a pretty good app for free
    If you have a subscription, Reuters News and Reuters Markets Pro are jot bad at all either
    Factset as well, as above
    Cnbc is a fantastic video update collector, free again
    Good for business is a decent super secured email and intranet client
    Many banks have released clients for their equity research, the jpmorgan one is very good

    Besides all of the above, I'm eagerly waiting for the soon to happen release of a special app developed by my bank which will create a secured partition and allow me to use good reader, noterize and a lot of other cool proprietary apps for my job in an environment where I don't risk going to jail if I do it :)
