When the original iPad was released back in the Spring of 2010, it was game-changing tablet device so innovative that no one knew quite what to do with it. Two years later the third generation iPad is now available, and Apple is the undisputed king of the tablet world. But many people still aren’t getting the most out of the device. We all know that it’s great for media consumption, but what’s the best way to optimize it for work?
ZDNet’s Jason Perlow has put together a terrific guide that attempts to answer this question. covering a wide range of topics including personal information management, bookmark synchronization, data exchange, document viewing, collaboration and remote access.
Perlow explains how to best tweak built-in software like the iOS Mail app, and when you're better off downloading a third-party app. When Perlow suggests an alternative, such as he does in the case of CalenGoo, GoodReader or QuickOffice Pro, his reasoning is clear and well thought-out, making the guide a must-read for anyone using an iPad in a working environment.
