In Pictures: 25 essential business apps for iPhone 5

The iPhone 5 is here, so it’s time to start loading it up with apps.


Rather than simply consolidating social media feeds as many aggregators do, Flipboard turns them into a “Social Magazine.” Frankly, this app looks best suited to tablets, or to smartphones with gigantic screens, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note, but the concept is very cool regardless. Flipboard isn’t solely focused on social media feeds. You can also pull in news feeds, travel deals and plenty more, all reformatted into a magazine-style layout that is easy to navigate and just plain looks good.

Developer: Flipboard

Cost: Free

Available on Android too? Yes. It was just recently ported to Android, but recent reviews (and my own testing) find it to be glitchy and slow on Android.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
