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.

Line2 Free. Current version average rating: 3 stars Designed for iPhone, iPad


The Line2 VoIP service, which costs $10 monthly, adds a slick business call center to your iPad or iPhone. Line2 includes such business phone features as call waiting, call transfer, and multi-party conferencing as well as optional features that cost extra such as auto attendant and virtual receptionist. Call quality, in my experience, is quite good. You can also port an existing number to Line2, send and receive SMS, and use a Bluetooth headset on a call. As its name implies, Line2 is an ideal way to add a second, dedicated business line to your iOS device while keeping your iPhone number for friends and family. Heads up: You can't make 911 calls using Line2.
