iPad for Business Round-Up: DocStorm and Conference Pad 2.0

The iPad isn’t just a hot new consumer device, it’s also an increasingly popular tool for business. Each week we take a look at the new or updated business apps for the iPad, and highlight trends in how tablets are being used in the enterprise.

This week we take a look at a new document viewer, and an updated app for giving giving presentations on mobile devices.


DocStorm is a new iPad document viewer for PDFs, txt files and ePubs. It offers text size adjustment, brightness settings, social sharing and internal bookmarking. It competes with apps like GoodReader. Unlike GoodReader, DocStorm supports ePub files – but unlike GoodReader, it doesn’t support Microsoft Word files.

Conference Pad 2.0 Updated

Conference Pad 2.0 is an app designed to let you control a presentation that appears on multiple iOS devices. For example, instead of giving a presentation on a projector, you could have all the meeting participants view the slides on their iPads. The presenter can still control the flow of the presentation through their own device. It uses PDF as a presentation format.

This week Conference Pad added thumbnail navigation and internal links within a presentation.
