Thanks for starting this list, Alex. How about one for Android tablets? I think they are likely to be popular amongst Engineers - I'm getting one.

Thanks, Jack.  It's interesting to me that, utlities excepted, many of these iPad apps are adjuncts to the real thing, rather than full-blown, standalone programs. I think that's a function of the data-entry limitations of the tablet form-factor.

Thanks for posting, Alex.  While I'm not quite ready to join the ranks of the daily iPad users, it's good to know that companies are starting to offer some useful apps for when you're on the road.

Nice slide show, Alex. Quite a range of apps, and it seems Siemens is particularly advanced in mobile apps. It's also encouraging that many of these companies are providing their apps at no charge. That's is a no-brainer, since customers are already spending considerable sums for the technology.
