1. Quickoffice Pro HD ($19.99)

Opening, creating, editing files is one of our daily tasks. Using your laptop for such small jobs will be a waste of time when your iPad can do the same for you. After trying out various Office apps, Quickoffice HD is one which suits me the best. Though this is one of the most expensive Office app in the market, but it truly justifies the price tag it comes with. Be it a Word, Excel, Powerpoint or a PDF file, this app opens them all. Trasferring files to third party services is pretty easy too. This is is a must have for you all.


2. Instapaper ($3.99)

At times we come across some good articles but do not have the time to read them and when we actually have time, we are not able to find them again. This is where Instapaper comes into play. Save articles, news, blog posts to Instapaer in just a click and catch them up in your leisure time. Instapaper is plug-in which resides in your browser and functions from there. The best part about the app us that it does not require an active Internet connection to read the saved stuff.
