In Pictures: 7 hot iPad apps for business

From Web conferencing to to-do lists, a growing legion of business apps built for the mobile workforce are finding favor with iPad devotees

Revel POS This point-of-sale application tracks sales in real time at restaurants and grocery and retail stores. “We use it as a cash register,” says Rony Henoud, owner of Darn Good Food, a restaurant in San Francisco. The restaurant has been using Revel POS for more than a year; the app allows for remote reporting and making changes to the menu. It also costs less than old-style point-of-sale systems, Henoud says. “The functionality of it from a management perspective is fantastic.” The app is cloud-based; Darn Good Foods does not need to maintain a server in its restaurant. Although the app can slow down when wireless connections are dropped, processing continues seamlessly when wireless capabilities return, Henoud says.

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

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.

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.
