7 Favorite iPad Apps For HR and Business

While I try my best to not be overtly promotional in this forum, every now and then our software developers come up with something so compelling that I would be doing you a disservice not to announce it.

Of course, there are many useful applications for the iPad for HR, recruiting and staffing professionals to stay informed, up to date and functional – while mobile. See below for a list of our favorite 7 iPad apps for business.

1. Bond eEmpACT Staffing Software
eEmpACT v16 now features integrations for both the iPhone and iPad. What this means for the recruiters and staffing professionals who currently use Bond eEmpACT is they can perform candidate searches more easily while on the move, empowering them to cut response times and address client needs immediately.

2. The Wall Street Journal
An invaluable business publication has modernized and reinvented itself as an invaluable app. With the tap of a finger, you can access everything from the week’s most popular videos and slideshows, to today’s hottest news and stock reports, whether on the road or on the couch.

3. TweetDeck
If you are like most businesses, you are either toeing the water or long ago dove into the social media ocean. And regardless of what camp you fall into, Twitter is likely front and center in your efforts. TweetDeck can help you manage anywhere from one to multiple Twitter accounts, and with its iPad app, can help you do so in real-time from anywhere.

4. GoToMeeting
Why be the one meeting attendee who can’t see what’s being projected, just because you happen to be en route* to your next destination? With GoToMeeting’s iPad app, en route no longer means blind participant. (*Of course, if en route means you are driving a car, please be content with simply listening in.)

5. Instapaper Pro
Where was that page full of staffing resources and white papers, again? With Instapaper Pro, you can save pages on your iPad so you can easily find them later. Think bookmarking…but with an iPad.

6. Analytics HD by Inblosam
What could be more addicting than really digging into your website analytics and learning the most intricate little details about the behavior of your website visitors? Since ’nothing’ or ‘very little’ are the most likely responses to this question, how can you tear yourself away from Analytics when its finally time to leave the office? Why not just take them with you with this app from Inblosam?

7. AudioNote Notepad and Voice Recorder by Luminant Software
Are you a note scribbler or an occasional meeting daydreamer? This app is an absolute lifesaver as it can synchronize written notes with voice recording, ensuring every important detail from every important meeting is clearly documented.

So what are your favorite iPad apps?

Dropbox helps me keep all of my critical folders and files synchronized across my many desktop and mobile devices. I agree with your recommendation of the WSJ app, which I use daily during my morning workouts. Kayak is a nice iPad app for planning trips. Dragon Dictation cuts down on typing, and the AIM for iPad app keeps me in touch with my contacts, at least until Apple offers a native iPad version of iChat. This final tip is not for an app, but for hardware-- if you need to bust out anything other than very short notes, the Apple Bluetooth keyboard is sleek and light and packs easily into most netbook bags along with your iPad.

Good post, Tim.
