    One app that I found really helpful for my business is Notebook ( http://www.circusponies.com ). Notebook looks just like a paper notebook and lets you take notes while it records the speaker, so you have an audio record of the meeting (great!). I use it to organize client information and keep track of notes, PDFs, emails, proposals, everything. It’s really great having it all portable and organized on my iPad. Definitely an app worth checking out!
