    I wonder if anyone is actively making money on their iPad. If so what apps do you use to support this. Please try to say how the app helps you.

    Please do not spam this thread with links I'm not interested and it's not allowed on this forum so you will most likely get banned.

    How do you make money on the iPad or how does it help your business in a way it's improved sales/production etc where the iPad has really made a difference?

    Ah...now I feel I can post in your thread! The original question had me thinking were you looking for something I could not comment on....

    I use my iPad to give pressentations...several per week. I love using the iPad for this because it lets you zoom in on things in a way you simply cannot do in a traditional PC. That pinch and zoom is wonderful for technical talks I give.

    I also do a lot of reading for work on my iPad. That was my primary reason for dumping my iPad 2 and getting a retina iPad. Funny thing, though, is I can still do the reading on my mini, too, and since it is so small and light, it is easier to sit on the couch and hold it in my hand to read. And I do lots of this kind of thing. My iPad are a big tool for work...all linked to up to dropbox. Since getting my iPad, dropbox and become even more useful for me since I can work in the same files at work, at home, or whatever I am.

    So, yes, iPad is a big part of work for me. The sheer number of apps is a big plus, too. I found this one app that I actually plan to use a lot over the next several months -- for work.

    So, while I don't feel comfortable saying I make money with my iPad, I do feel comfortable saying I use my iPad in my work, which is how I earn a living. :)

    I use GoodReader the most, for work. There are a few others that I'm planning on integrating into my daily workflow.

    Yes the question is a little confusing sorry, I had to say that above to ensure people don't spam the forum! Do you solely rely on the iPad now or do you use a PC also. I'm interested in the apps and their potential uses in business. There is a tonne of apps but you don't always understand the new features they can bring to your business just by the iTunes description so I thought it would be interesting to see how others had integrated the iPad into their work?

    I use tablets, laptops, and PCs in everything I do.

    One app that I have that I think could be useful in the day-to-day running of a business would be Bento for iPad. You can build databases to track almost anything. It comes with a lot of built up templates, like recipes, diet log, inventory, event planning, time billing, expenses, digital media, products for sale, equipment, issue tracking, items sold, customers, notes, etc. This is from the company that makes Filemaker Pro which allows one to develop tools for iPad.

    I like this bento app thank you, I like to keep things organised and have searched before for a good database app and the one I had been using was crap. I'm sure the iTunes app search doesn't bring up everything.

    I use LandTrackerPro to convert DLS (dominion land survey) and NTS (national topographic system) locations into grid references, then use MotionX GPS HD to find out where they are, and how I'm going to get there.

    Apart from that, I use email to keep me up to date on what in supposed to be doing.

    That's about it really.

    The NTS allows you to spot and location in Canada by means of a 6 part code. These are accurate to within a few meters. The DLS system is a secondary one used only in the Canadian Prairies (parts of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and part of British Columbia). It is more useful where roads are arranged in a grid pattern. I believe there are similar systems in place in the USA and Australia.

    I use the iPad to test my patients eyes and show them what different diseases look like.
