Great apps make great platforms, and iOS and iPad are a great proof of that. One of the most captivating things about the iPad is the incredible range of great apps we are able to use and enjoy on Apple’s tablet. Each Saturday we share a favorite outstanding app as iPad App of the Week.
This week’s pick is an app bundle rather than a single app. App Bundles are brand new to the App Store and offer up sets of apps or games from the same developer available at special prices. Our pick this week is Ultimate Productivity Bundle by Readdle. This is a set of excellent productivity apps from one of the very best developers in that category of apps, at 25% off.
The four apps include in the Ultimate Productivity Bundle are PDF Expert 5, Printer Pro, Scanner Pro, and Calendars 5. I own three out of these four apps – not Calendars 5 as I’m just not a power calendar user – and I can vouch for the stellar quality of each of them.
I’ve written about PDF Expert many times on this site as I think it’s the best of a very good bunch of PDF apps for the iPad. It provides an elegant and simple UI alongside a superb set of powerful features for working with PDFs – including highlighting, annotating, and signing documents.
Printer Pro was one of the first apps I used to make wireless printing easy from my iOS devices. It lets you print documents web pages, email attachments, and more.
Scanner Pro is one of the best scanning apps for the iPad. It scans to a PDF file format and lets you upload your scans to popular cloud services or add them to Evernote.
Calendars 5 is a smart calendar, described like so in the Ultimate Productivity App Store page:
Plan Your Life.
Calendars 5 is aт amazing smart calendars client that works with both iOS and Google calendars. It helps you to easily plan your events, meetings and tasks using Natural Language Input. Simply write “Meet John at 10 AM tomorrow at Starbucks” and Calendars 5 will create that event for 10 AM inviting John from your address book. Moreover, there’s a fully functional task manager that syncs with iOS Reminders, making it a perfect day planner app.
Here’s an App Store link for the Ultimate Productivity Bundle by Readdle; it’s priced at $19.99 and is designed for both iPad and iPhone.
