Apps: AirDisplay by Avatron

Another must have app for me is AirDisplay. It allows you to use your iOS device as a second monitor. I love having the option to add some screen real estate just by wirelessly connecting my iPad. It has been great for multitasking and allows you to jump back in forth between apps without have to dig up that buried window. Another advantage is when used with spaces it acts just like any other display so you can have any number of vitual deskotps. The only draw back is that active window content on the iPad is a little to much to ask but that's to be expected.

If you can't live without a second display this app is for you. It is FANTASITC!!!! Grab it for $9.99

Apps: Bar-Code By Roberto Sonzogni

I know this might not be the most exciting app out there but if you're looking for a barcode scanning app this is it: Bar-Code . I've tried several others and this is the best one to date.

I love its simplicity and the ability to scan continually.  You can set the delimiter and store the barcode as an image.  When you're done you can send it off as an email.  For me its perfect I use it to scan serial numbers, MAC addresses, tracking numbers, and just about anything with a barcode.

Barcodes are everywhere so having the ability to grab it quickly and search, store, or email is simply indispensable.

It supports a ton of barcode formats:

EAN-8, UPC-E, ISBN-10, UPC-A, EAN-13, ISBN-13, Interleaved 2 of 5, Code 39, QR Code, Code 128, Code 93, Farmacode, GS1 DataBar, GS1 DataBar Expanded, GS1 2-digit add-on, GS1 5-digit add-on, EAN/UPC composite.

I hope you find it as useful as I have!

If you own an iPad two must have Apps – Reeder and Evernote

If you use Google Reader to follow your feeds Reeder is an absolute must. I cannot say enough good things about this app, especially on the iPad. If you have an iPad you owe it to yourself to get this app. And if you want to keep track of all the cool things you find from the feeds, download Evernote right now!!! You can grab sites, clippings, make audio and video notes, or just about anything and organize it away for later.  Best of all they all sync between your devices; make a note on your iPhone and it's on your Mac, SWEET!!!

Some big tech journalists talk iPad…

I think I am going to hold out until the first or second revision of the device.  I'd like to see where they end up taking the hardware.
