According to Macworld, there are almost 500,000 iPad apps, even though “only” 90,000 are officially for sale in the Apple app store. Most of the amazing number of iPad apps are focused on entertainment, including ultra-geeky, but no-cost apps like the Star Trek PADD – Personal Access Display Device. For only 99 cents, you can download the “Flux Capacitor” and turn your iPad into the mad scientist device that rocketed the Back to the Future Car back into the 1950s!

Best of all, you have offline access to key data stored on your iPad. You can use the Mobile CRM HD App for iPad even if you don’t have wireless connectivity.
