iPad for Business Round-Up: Adobe Connect, TripIt and More

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 week we look at the updated Adobe Connect app, TripIt for iPad, Oracle Business Intelligence Suite and more.

Adobe Connect

Adobe released version 1.5 of its mobile Web conferencing app Adobe Connect Mobile this week. The new version adds two-way video (so you can take advantage of the dual-cameras on the iPad2 and iPhone 4), a meeting overview feature and the ability to focus in on any one particular item from the overview. This app competes with the mobile versions of WebEx and GoToMeeting.


We told you about the developer preview of Mobile Couchbase for iOS back in March. Now Couchbase has released a beta version of the product. This will enable you to install Apache CouchDB-based applications on your iPad.

Oracle Business Intelligence Suite

This week Oracle added iPad support to its Business Intelligence Suite, joining a growing list of BI vendors offering BI tools for the iPad. Instead of a native app, Oracle has gone the tablet-optimized website route.


TripIt, a popular travel organizer Web and mobile app finally released an iPad version this week. TripIt takes your various itineraries and organizes them all in one handy location. Personally, I’m happy just having the app on my phone, but the company is touting the iPad’s ability to display larger maps as the main benefit of running it on a tablet.

Document Collaboration Apps for the iPad

This week we explored 5 different document collaboration apps that let you create, edit and share documents with your iPad.
