EDITOR'S PICKGoodReader for iPhone ($5) iOSThe versatile GoodReader can handle more than just PDF files; it can also open .txt files, Word documents, and pretty much anything else you throw at it. Like the Adobe Reader app, GoodReader will allow you to mark up PDFs with notes and comments. Unlike the Adobe Reader app, GoodReader can also import documents from your Google Docs account, Dropbox, Box.net, or any number of server types. You can even set the app to sync the changes you make to the imported documents, so your files are always up-to-date.
LinkedIn (free) Android | iOSThe social network for professionals, LinkedIn offers an app for Android and iOS that does more than help you stay up-to-date with your connections. The news section, for instance, delivers the hottest stories of the day related to topics that you follow; the stories open within the app’s browser, and you can share any article you’re reading with your LinkedIn network. The app also lets you sync your LinkedIn contacts with those in your address book, so you can easily get in touch with them whenever you need to.
