Below are 5 apps for the iPad that will enhance your productivity and make you happy that you were part of the first wave of iPad purchasers, the Wi-Fi version, and soon the 3G supported version, while others snicker behind your back thinking you were duped yet again by Apple.

1. Split Browser

2. Evernote

If you don’t like the standard Notes app loaded on the iPad, try Evernote. Evernote is one of the most feature rich multi-platform notes app available. Designed to match Apple’s Mail app, this FREE app, is a must have for anyone looking to stay productive.

3. Toodledo

If task management is central to you, Toodledo is your tool. This app, for $2.99, provides a combination of a simple and clean design, while allowing for user specific customization.

4. 1Password

If you are like most working stiffs you have to keep track of multiple user IDs and passwords for multiple systems. 1Password is an award-winning password and identity manager, which, for $6.99, syncs across your iPad, iPhone and desktop.

5. Multitask

This app adds a simple RSS reader in the sidebar of your browser while you surf the web. Your news of choice while you browse for only $2.99.

The above are but a few of the apps that enhance productivity, and are those that won’t break the bank. What tools have you found to make you more productive on your iPad?

    Great iPad apps Jeff, thanks for sharing. I also want to share some of my productivity tools that I use. Well, I use Dropbox for collaboration it is the easiest way for me to share photos, videos, and files. Another is Hootsuite where I check my social media at one window, it is easy to use. I also used time management tools that helps me manage time efficiently. Where I list my entire task and set an amount of time to do each task so that I can do more work with less time. It also helps me to stay focus on work and avoid distractions. This way I can be more productive.

    I have the otter box case. It’s not the most pretty case but it is sturdy and really safe. I love the stand on it, and I love that the back has a small opening so that you can dock your ipad without taking the case off. The otter box case is definitely pricey though. I paid 80.00 for mine. But as a seller, the same day I bought it I dropped my Ipad twice and spilled soda on it, and thanks to the otter box case, not a scratch, stain or problem because of my clumsiness. For me, the thick triple protection case is a must have

    I'm looking for a nice case for my IPAD. I don't like apples…. gets dirty too fast… the front flap folds up to easy and while carrying the thing…it's uncomfortable. If anyone has any good recommendations, post what you went with.

    Another Must have is to know the iPad's new Start page -
    Everything you need on one screen..
