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

Salesforce Desk.com This “social help desk” app assists with customer service. Men’s clothing site Bonobos.com uses Desk.com on both iPads and iPhones mainly for customer-facing service and for routing some internal processes, says John Rote, vice president of experience at Bonobos. He also uses it for social media work, responding to cases on Twitter and Facebook. “I end up doing a decent amount of social media work through Desk.com on an iPhone or a tablet,” Rote says. While Bonobos does not use Desk.com to track sales, it does use the app to track volumes of inquiries, as well as customer service levels. The principal limitation Bonobos has found is using the tablet to access internal systems, including Web administration and CRM.

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
