HEY, THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT!
Tablet apps, as you may be aware, are intended to take advantage of the device’s touch-friendly interface, high portability, extended (8-10 hour) battery life and larger screen form factor. Here, we take a look at some of the best applications available on these devices today across various operating systems.
As of now there are close to 90,000 tablet- specific applications for the ipad. While there is no official figure from
