Why the iPad is a perfect tool for business

Maybe not everybody can see it yet but this is the way it is heading. We have reached the point where the mobile device is powerful enough that most of the day-to-day tasks that the typical office worker encounters can be done on the iPad. They are predicting about 48 million iPad sales in 2012 - a good number of those will be used in the workplace.

There are a number of reasons that the iPad is becoming more popular in business, but the top three have to be: the extreme portability of the device (light and convenient), the fact that it switches on instantly and the very long battery life. Of course there are other compelling reasons for using the iPad: you can use it standing up holding it in one hand and doing the work with the other, you can put it on a table in a meeting without creating a barrier between you and the other meeting participants and you can use other devices with it (such as a bluetooth keyboard) to speed up data entry and give more screen space - even when  carrying an external keyboard with the iPad it is still smaller and lighter than a laptop. 

It's all quite compelling, but there is a missing component. That is the software: it is mostly lightweight and doesn't punch at the same level as desktop and laptop machines. However, that is rapidly changing. More app developers are creating heavy weight software that does an excellent job. That's where I'm aiming to be with MeetingGold: a seriously heavy weight app that allows you to use the iPad for your daily work and that makes meetings painless and productive.
