  1. Jobjuice MBA tools are great – have them in my iPad but are universal versions so they also run in iphones. They are sold as a job interview prep tools but they have loads of business content which I use for exam prep and as reference.
    Evernote is great for clippings and bookmarking + sharing it also runs in my Mac.
    Dropbox is a nice tool for files and file sharing – can upload big files.
