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.

Magellan RoadMate USA

Most business travelers understand there’s no such thing as a perfect GPS device or app. At some point, they'll all lead you down routes best described as "circuitous." Even so, you may come to love RoadMate USA. For one thing, it locks onto a GPS signal quickly, even when you turn your iPhone on for the first time in a new location (such as after a flight). My Garmin GPS sometimes took up to 15 minutes to accomplish this. RoadMate USA’s turn-by-turn, voice-guided directions are mostly accurate. On occasion, however, it will tell you to turn right, then suddenly change its mind. It also displays highway interchange signs. Plus, you won’t have to pack a portable GPS anymore.
