USB Disk for iPad – Document Transfers Made Easy

Total Score:  28

I went shopping on iTunes for a simple document transfer app. There are a lot of good ones that make use of a cloud, but I wanted one that was between my iPad and me.  USB Disk for iPad and USB Disk Pro for iPad were just what I needed.   Using iTunes, you can easily transfer files from your drives to the app.  Once the files are in the app, you can create folders, move them from one folder to the next and view the files.  It is a handy way to store documents you use regularly.

This app (I use the pro version) gets a thumbs up for sustainability.  I’ve had it downloaded for two years and continue to find it valuable.

Clear Your Mind and Clear Your Task List with the Clear App

Total Score:  29.5

I am constantly searching for a great to-do list app.  I have tried and used a number of them.  All of them work if I put in the effort to keep them up.  So, why didn’t I stay with them?  I think it’s because I haven’t found one that easily lets me move tasks around, create multiple lists, and frankly is just great looking.  Clear has it all. I have been using it for both my personal and work life for about a week now and have been very pleased.  I have already recommended it to my friends – which to me is the best review I can give.

Have you ever wanted to capture a website and add a big arrow that says, “Click here” when you tried to explain something?   Or, perhaps, thought of a funny caption to add to a photo?   Skitch for iPad and iPhone offers you that and much more.  You can add arrows, circles, squares, lines, crop an image, add text or just write on it.  I fell in love with this app at the creation of my first, well, I guess we call them skitches.

Penultimate – Best in Class iPad Handwriting App

Total Score:  29

I have been looking for an app that would allow me to take notes in meetings, annotate photos and generally help me stay organized.  I have tested a couple of apps that met that need, but until now, none that inspired me like Penultimate.   I started out my test enjoying the features offered – ink colors, moving between pages, cutting, erasing and importing photos.  From that point, I decided I needed to create a book of my own.  First I documented my New Year’s resolutions (if you write them down you are more likely to achieve them), then I decided I needed a fitness journal, and then I decided I wanted to create a life journal and I haven’t even gotten to the work uses yet!  I think this app will exceed your expectations and dare I say it, improve your life!

Use Your Handwriting Gold – Easy and Fun List Making

Total Score:  28

The Use Your Handwriting app is one of my favorites.  While I am a decent typist on the tiny iPhone keyboard, using my own handwriting is a treat.   I create grocery lists, lists of DVDs I want to watch, gift lists and to do lists.   Whenever someone asks me why I like my iPhone, this app is one of the first that I demo.  It never fails to get a “Wow.”  The icon for the iPad version is identical.
