    "I use PowerPoint for work so it is a good app for my tablet. I can put together presentations on a smaller scale when my laptop is too bulky to use on my commute. I found it worked just fine on the smaller platform so it is a fit my needs just fine."

    "One of my friends at work recommended I download this app because I tend to be disoganized. I really like the layout/format of the app! For someone who has had difficulty in the past, the Wunderlist app helps keep track of things I used to have problems with. I remember one particularly awkward instance during which I was supposed to be in charge of planning a party and I kind of... forgot. Then, at the last minute I couldn't organize efficiently and overall it was a bummer. This app is amazingly helpful. Get it!"

    "Noteledge is an app that works on iOS so ideal for your iPad. It is for making and organizing notes in multiple media forms including written, audio and video. Sounds great in practice but the app is subscription based so you can't buy it outright which will put off most right away. There is a free version but you'd be bombarded with banner ads and constantly asked to rate the app which gets very annoying. Unless you are willing to shell out on a subscription you won't enjoy this app much despite its useful features."
