In Pictures: Top 25 iPhone and iPad apps for business

Apple's iPhone and iPad may have been built for consumers, but the folks in Cupertino correctly guessed that what's good for consumers is good for businesses. The only stumbling block may be the growing volume of apps available: more 140,000 natively for the iPad and over 500,000 that work on the iPhone and iPad. Here are 25 go-to iOS apps for business users, from travel planning to document editing using Microsoft Office tools to time tracking to getting a good night's sleep.

Toggl Timer Free. All versions average rating: 2.5 stars Designed for iPhone, iPad

Toggl Timer

Though it has room for improvement, Toggl Timer (available as a free app as well as free cloud service) is the best time-tracking software I’ve used. The iOS app has always been easy to use, and a recent update has further refined the interface as well as delivered an iPad-native version. Toggl Timer syncs your information to the cloud from your iPhone, iPad, or the free desktop Toggl app, but you can still use it offline. Additional features, such as the ability to assign billing rates to clients and export to Quickbooks, require a $5 monthly account. My only complaints: You must log into to create and export reports, and neither the app nor the web site lets you generate invoices based.
