iPad for Business Round-Up: Yammer, Project Management, ECM 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 Yammer’s upgraded mobile app, project management apps for the iPad and new mobility upgrades from two enterprise content management providers.

Bizness Apps

This week we coveredBizness Apps, a new tool for creating native Android, iPhone and iPad apps. It has a simple drag and drop interface for creating apps with photo galleries, menus, RSS feeds, Twitter streams, Wufoo forms, QR codes, coupons and other more. It costs $39 a month.

ECM: OpenText and SpringCM

OpenText added tablet support to its Web Experience Management product. Admins will now be able to create tablet-optimized versions of their content, including rich media, using WEM.

Meanwhile, hosted ECM service SpringCM has added support for the iPad interface.

Project Management

This week we did a round-up of project management apps for the iPad. Trackbot, a client for the agile project management software-as-a-service Pivotal Tracker is the clear reader favorite.


This week Yammer, a microblogging and social network service for the enterprise, released a new version of its iOS app. New features include threaded discussions, private messaging, full Retina Display support and ability to view documents within the app.

iPads are Hot, But Windows Still Rules

We write a lot about the rise of mobile devices in general and the iPad in particular. But it’s worth keeping in mind that Windows desktop still dominate both the consumer and enterprise markets. This week Business Insider put it in perspective by pointing out that Microsoft has sold more Windows 7 licenses since its release than Apple has sold iOS devices in the same period.
