iPad-exclusive apps ideal for meeting planners20/02/2012
The iPad is a useful and versatile device for meeting planners. Lighter and faster than most laptops, its functionality is perfect for any meeting planner constantly on the go. The Apple tablet is unique in its screen size (9.7 inches), screen resolution, and large keyboard. Even iPad applications have been revamped to look more like Mac software. Although many applications are designed to run on both the iPhone and iPad, there are over 140,000 apps made exclusively for the iPad that the modern meeting planner must try out!
BENTO - Created by FileMaker, Inc., this $4.99 app is like a meeting planner’s personal database, with 25 available templates. Bento allows you to easily organize your contacts like digital business cards; include a photo so you never forget a face! Record a conference or a client meeting so you never miss a beat. Plus, you can track and manage all your events and projects, including images, tasks and key contacts. Then when you’re finished for the day, synch with Bento for Mac!

TOTAL - This design app can assist you when planning the layout of a meeting room. You can create your own rooms with accurate floor dimensions. Thanks to the EasyAngle sketch function, planners can quickly draw up the floor plan with a finger. Plus adding photos and furniture allows you and your client to truly visualize the final conference setup. It's free!

A shared whiteboard and a recording device will soon be integrated. Thanks to iWikiPhone.com, all of this is possible for $2.99.
