With team members often spread across the globe it can be a real challenge for modern-day companies to manage the reality of a global workforce working together as one.

Thankfully, help is at hand in the form of iPad collaboration apps.

It’s now possible to manage projects from the beach, the car, or even in the bathroom thanks to the rise of the iPad. But the last thing you need when working with a project management app on your iPad is something complex and fiddly. Just because an iPhone project management app is complex, it does not always mean it’s more useful. There’s nothing worse than fumbling around on your iPad to use features and functions you neither need or understand.
There are two things you need to think about when it comes to finding the best project management apps for iPad. The first thing is to make sure that the app helps you to assign and distribute work in the right way. The second and equally important thing is that you can instantly analyze project analytics on the move so you can keep on top of project goals. This sounds easy but can be a tricky to get right because iOS project management apps simply don’t give you enough solutions to do both effectively.
With school coming up just around the corner, it is important to have all the tools you might possibly need for the next school year. Nowadays, many students use iPads as a tool in their studies, and for good reason: the iPad has a wealth of amazing apps for education. The following is a roundup of iPad apps that are geared toward, but not limited to, high school students. Find out which apps students can’t miss after the jump.
Upon the iCloud API being introduced, it was no secret that developers were somewhat slow to take advantage of what it offered. The feature allowed game developers to do things like store users’ game saves in the cloud, but many developers already had systems in place that did exactly this. What benefits would they get from moving to Apple’s service? This of course wasn’t the only functionality that came with iCloud, but, regardless, developers weren’t exactly enthusiastic. There wasn’t much reason for them to do extra work and adopt a new system that came with little up front benefit. Especially when, in the case of game developers, they already had things like OpenFeint that managed many of the same things.
Slowly but surely, however, developers of all different kinds of apps started to adopt iCloud as an easy way to back up and sync various kinds of data across devices. Games use the service to back up your save states for future recovery, to-do list apps use it to keep your lists in harmony across all your devices, and word processing apps — including Apple’s own Pages — use the service to save all your work to the cloud, accessible from anywhere you may need it. I’ve compiled a list of ten apps that do these and more on your iPad, so hit the break to read about them–you might even find an app you’ve never heard of before!
His name was John Gruber. Maybe you’ve heard of him as the Apple blogger who knows the system better than them all. Then again, maybe you read his “linkblog” when you’re looking for interesting new things in the technology market. One thing you probably didn’t know is that he created a lightweight markup language named Markdown back in 2004. In its early days, only Bare Bones Software’s BBEdit used it because Gruber was employed there. No one else even bothered with it because the application ecosystem was not like it is today.
Things are a lot different now, though. A lot of people are on constant lookout for a Markdown editor to fit their tastes. Whether it has previewing capabilities, dual-editing functions for HTML and other code alongside Gruber’s, or just iCloud sync with a simple interface, we’ve all come to know distraction-free editors as ones that solely employ Markdown for making things fast and easy. After all, rich text is a thing of the past.
All these new pieces of software have recently been brought to the iPad because it’s a platform fit for such editing tasks. Users enjoy reading on the device, and some thoroughly have a good time writing their thoughts down in something like Day One. Then there are those like the AppStorm team, and most of us really love writing, no matter where it gets done. If you’re looking for something quick and easy for Markdown editing or even a more feature-packed app, we’ve got everything you’ll ever hope for and more in today’s roundup. (more…)
Whether you’re a student, business person or have a job of any type, a calendar can be useful to schedule your time and plan out your day. Most iOS users probably rely on the Calendar app because it is built in, but are they missing out on the extra functionality that a third-party calendar can provide? There is also a good chance that they could be missing out on using a better looking calendar!
There are a lot of calendar apps in the App Store. To limit the list, it was decided to have some basic criteria: all major calendar sync services should be supported within the app, including Google, iCloud and Exchange. Let’s check out the contenders after the break. (more…)
