6 don't-miss apps for tablets


While most mobile apps were designed for smartphones, some are optimised for the big screen of tablets. Boost your activities with apps that are adapted to your tablet.


1. Microsoft Office

Office, Microsoft's famous office suite, is also available for the iPad as well as for Android and Windows tablets. Write text in Word, make Excel spreadsheets, create PowerPoint presentations and process your mail in Outlook. OneNote, OneDrive for Business, Lync 2013, Skype and Yammer are also available in mobile versions.


2. SlideShark

SlideShark lets you upload web presentations created on your computer and display them on your iPad. You can also edit presentations, add notes, share them with others and disseminate them online. Show your presentation on a TV via a VGA/HDMI adapter or wirelessly via AirPlay with Apple TV.


3. GoodReader

Initially, GoodReader was only designed to manage, view and annotate PDF files. Today, the application supports many popular file formats, including Microsoft Office, HTML, images and even zip files. GoodReader is ideal for reading documents on an iPad, adding notes and sharing them. The app integrates cloud storage services like Dropbox, iCloud and Google Drive. Result: your documents are synchronised automatically.


4. Penultimate

The handwriting application Penultimate associates the unique experience of paper with the power of digital technology. Take notes with your fingers or stylus thanks to this intuitive app. It recognises your writing and then allows you to easily find your notes on the basis of keywords. Since Evernote acquired the Penultimate app in 2012, you can also sync your notes with Evernote.


5. Mailbox

Take back control of your inbox with the Mailbox application, which meanwhile has been bought by Dropbox. Easily drag your emails in your archive or trash. You need to concentrate? Make your emails disappear and make them reappear later. And get an empty mailbox in a jiffy.
