The iPad is an amazing device and it can be used for so many different things. Of course not everyone uses their iPad to its fullest potential either because they don’t need it for certain things or they don’t how to do so. Business is a very common application of the iPad, and here is how you can optimize your iPad to use it for all types of business needs.
The iPad can be a great means to get your finances in order. Oftentimes all you need to optimize it is an app. One of the best apps for personal finance is Mint. The app lets you categorize different income and expenditures, create a budget, look at your money and spending through graphical representation, and it can even give you alerts and updates so you never have to deal with late fees on payments. The app is safe and secure, it really gives you the ability to see where your money is going, and best of all it is free.
Stocks are a huge part of finance and business, and many people are involved in the stock market and need information regarding the market itself as well as individual businesses. With a larger screen the iPad is ideal to be the center of portfolio management. For starters you have apps like Bloomberg and CNBC which not only provide up to date information on stocks, but also graphs, articles, and other information that any investor would like to have at their finger tips. Plus many online brokers have free apps so you can trade directly from your iPad.
Aside from general business, what if you have an actual business or plan on starting one? Well aside from the iPad’s ability to store notes and ideas, surf the web for more information, and act as a conference device for you and your other partners. But with free apps like Square, you can turn your iPad into a cash register and start accepting credit card payments either on the go or within a tradition retail setting. Of course Square will take out a flat rate, but it is a small price to pay at how intuitive it is and how quickly it can be implemented.
All these apps give your iPad great functionality in huge areas of business. And in addition to all of them being free, they give you great information and function right from the tip of your finger.
