The iPad has been building up its prominence in the enterprise literally since day one. Both public and private organizations have been purchasing the iPad in bulk for their employees at an astounding rate. So it only makes sense that if so many businesses and organizations are purchasing the iPad for their employees, all of these owners may be looking for some good business apps.
Even better, what about free business apps?
So I decided to put together a top 5 free business apps for iPad list to help you get started:
Adobe Reader is the free global standard for reliably viewing and sharing PDF documents across platfoms and devices. Easily and efficiently access the widest range of PDF file types—including PDF Portfolios, password-protected PDF documents and Adobe LiveCycle rights-managed PDF files.

#3) Dragon Dictation
Dragon Dictation is an easy-to-use voice recognition application powered by Dragon® NaturallySpeaking® that allows you to easily speak and instantly see your text or email messages. In fact, it’s up to five (5) times faster than typing on the keyboard.
