http://sedcclint.com - iOS, UCET, SUECON or URSA tag Two productivity apps from Apple that are the cream of the crop for presentations and document editing. They are not cheap as far as iPad apps go - $10 a piece, but they are worth the cost. Productivity Time iCabMobile Keynote & Pages DOWNLOADS! iCab Mobile has a built-in Download Manager so you can download almost all files from the Internet (even YouTube videos!). The downloads can be easily transferred to a Mac/PC/Linux computer but also to other Apps on the device which can open these files. iCab Mobile supports Dropbox to export/import bookmarks, transfer downloads, images, files, & web pages to your Dropbox account. Also great support for sharing/posting to other Web 2.0 sites/services.

The app also stores ANY file and easily transfers it between any computer for convenient one-stop file storage, just like a USB stick! Office2 HD Drafts Drafts is the quick, easy way to capture and share text. In Drafts, text comes first – open the app and get a new, blank draft – ready to type. Don't get bogged down in a timeline just to tweet or post to Facebook. Don't tap your way through multiple screens to get down an email or SMS. Don't navigate folders, create files and name them just to jot down a note or create a to-do. Get all of the App links and follow along at: http://goo.gl/3co8s Evernote Evernote turns the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad into an extension of your brain, helping you remember anything and everything that happens in your life.
