Ipad, my 43 favorite applications

Playing, playing with this tablet I proposed to stop using the laptop at the beginning of next year. My uncertainty if it will really be possible this has led me to look for the basic tools that will replace what I do -And stopped doing- in my routine.

Ipad apps main

It is interesting the model of operation of Apple with These tablets, As the applications are downloaded or purchased, and you can easily know that there are updates. The synchronization is clean, the system detects if there are applications that have not been passed to the tablet and before updating new changes makes a backup just in case.

The purchase is practical, you have to register in AppleStore, you just have to search by keyword or subject and you just have to go down and accept the debit. Once purchased, when you want to download them from another computer, you recognize that they have already been paid and the credit card is not charged again.

Here I leave the best I have found:


For security, Access and administration.

In total 43, of 27 that had included in the original list, only 18 of them are paid, that add up a little more of 100 dollars. Although the discomfort of working with a keyboard that does not fit the fingers seems to be the most complex and it will probably end up making me spend on hardware rather than software.

Over time, I have found GIS Kit, in my opinion the best GIS / GPS development for iPad. I have also found Keyboard shortcuts, in Capture the screen, ways to Transfer data To the PC,

... I forgot ... Happy Easter!
