All you need is your iPad and a good Internet connection.
Business iPad apps like AstralPad are a must in today’s 24/7 world, where digital professionals often field emails and work-related requests after office hours and on weekends. It has never been more important to have tools available that make working outside of the office as easy, stress-free, and productive as possible.
“The iPad is often the preferred platform at home, on the road, and even in the office, but professionals need better ways to get work done on the device,” said Rahul Singh, CEO and Founder of AstralPad. “Given that millions of people around the world use Google Apps to work and collaborate, Google Drive support helps AstralPad fit even more seamlessly into the digital professional’s lifestyle.”
Responding to international demand, AstralPad has updated the application for global distribution by adding regional servers to provide a fast experience to users everywhere. AstralPad is now available for download in the App Store in 16 other countries, including the UK, France, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Singapore, Hong Kong and India. A global footprint is essential for today’s internationally distributed teams.
AstralPad supports Google Apps documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, in addition to Microsoft Office Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Users can open multiple documents at the same time from Dropbox, Google Drive or their iPad, and copy and paste rich text content, such as a chart or image from a spreadsheet to a presentation.
AstralPad 2.0 is free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Business category.
