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.

Skyscanner Free. Current version average rating: 4.5 stars Designed for iPhone, iPad


Just like anyone else, business travelers need to find the lowest airfares. Skyscanner helps you out by visually display on bar charts how fares fluctuate day by day for a given itinerary. Another cool feature: Using the Explore feature, you can type in your home airport, select "Everywhere" as the destination, and "Any Day" as your departure and return dates. Skyscanner will then display a slowly spinning globe, with airfares to various destinations pinpointed. The Search feature lets you more quickly locate the least expensive routes from your home base. Downside: You don’t get the filtering options of Kayak (another great iOS app), such as the capability to block red-eye flights or commuter jets.
