With the launch of third generation iPads, there has been a huge rise in the number of new iPad apps. However, there are only a few useful apps out there to let users get more work done on their tablets. They can help them be more productive or solve a problem or provide value in some way to make their iPads great. Below you will find three top iPad utility apps to help you get started.
Word-2-Text Converter: You can find a few DOC viewers for iPad, but most of them couldn’t let users edit the content. With Word-2-Text Converter, users can convert the MS Word documents (both DOC and DOCX) into text files, so that they can make changes to it. It allows users to import documents through iTunes file sharing and cloud storage services such as iCloud and Dropbox. Apart from the main content, Word-2-Text Converter can also show the comments, but they would be displayed as plain text without any format. This uses tags structure to display comments and other such things like headers, footers, endnotes and footnotes. Word-2-Text Converter requires iOS 3.2 or later. This app supports English, Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish and it costs USD 1.99. Download it from here: http://itunes. apple.com/us/app/word-2-text-converter/id504814146
KoolrPix Studio: One can find a lot of image editing tools for iPhones and iPads. However, it won’t be easy to find a good one. I think KoolrPix Studio is really an effective tool to do all the basic image edits. It has some pre-loaded templates, stamps, frames and premium font designs, so users can find the right one just by browsing through the gallery. After launching this app, they can start customizing things by adding stamps and text. The interface is really cool and making adjustments in the images won’t be a tough task. This app can also be utilized as meme generator. However, it can’t help professionals, especially those who work in publications. KoolrPix Studio requires iOS 3.2 or later. It costs USD 2.99. Download it from here: http://itunes. apple.com/us/app/koolrpix-studio/id489988412
InStudios: This iPad app lets users to construct new landscapes and buildings as per their imagination. As InStudios comes integrated with search engine, users can search for images and save them in the photo register. After scaling the images and adjusting their opacity, they can be merged to create something really new. Therefore, this app is a combination of search engine and a photo editor. There is also a portfolio section which tells about the developer and the app. InStudios costs USD 5.99. The price may be a bit on the higher side, but I would say that the concept of InStudios and its functionality is near perfect. This app requires iOS 3.2 or later. Download it from here: http://itunes. apple.com/us/app/instudios/id495624106
