My Top 5 iPad Apps of the Week – Week #6

  1. Agree that the iPad is a great device when traveling. I just took my first vacation in years sans laptop, and actually found the iPad more useful than a laptop would have been. I was able to scan my work e-mail when I had a few moments using iNotes (no a long boot up!), respond to a few important items, and create documents using Pages and MindMeister. It was also my source of reading on the plane, a place to download photos off the camera, my map, my phone on the tarmac… and Star Walk and Toy Story helped me keep my niece and nephews entertained. What’s more, the thing fits in my camera bag.

  2. I just came back from a 2 week trip to India and took my iPad. Apart from the usual uses, I also used it as backup for my photos. I took the camera connection kit dongle, the SD card version, and backed my photos to the iPad daily. It turned out I lost an SD card somewhere along the trip and I was able to get all my images from my iPad. Pretty good on-the-fly photo backup strategy.

    Luís, I highly suggest you take a look at the lates version of GoodReader. It now has a full set of annotation tools, in addition to the powerful reading and upload/download tools it had before.

  3. I want to take an iPad travelling to Asia, but I dont know if it will replace my MAcbook pro. I wonder if there are sufficient apps available,

    1. Hi Jon, well, that would depend on what you are after at this point in time. I must confess that with my recent business travelling I have been taking the iPad alone and have been managing quite nicely, without missing the MBAir a single bit. But then again I didn’t have to do any heavy computing tasks, so that helped, but depending on what you would want to do you may be able to travel light with it or not… Looking for anything in particular?
