Thanks for that, Steve. In fact, I'd be very interested in people send me engineering ipad apps they use, for a follow-on slideshow.

For those of us that like nostalgia, I'd add one:  Virtual Slide Rule, from the Interrobang Group.  An excellent electronic representation of the Pickett N3-ES, with instructions.  Brings back great memories and helps keep math history alive!

Tablets are not new Tech

Tablets are not, as most of us know. I have one from the mid 90's, it runs an 386, and another that s running a P3. They were pretty much a niche market before. But technology is always upping, so bashing old tech is pointless, 10 yrs from now what we use now will be laughed at. I thing as a CAD/CAM user we use what is best for our needs at the point in time that it's best solution. If it makes my job more productive, I don't care who makes it. It will be outdated next year anyway, and I will using something else by then. These apps in the article could be useful given the right need. Thanks for the info on current Tech/software.

That's true, Dave. Nearly all of the apps mentioned here came in iPhone versions initially, then the iPad version followed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't most, if not all of these apps available for a laptop and smart phone? I think if I must carry something other my smart phone, it will be a laptop with an I3 processor (or better) that I can dock to a 24-inch monitor for efficient CAD work at my place of destination. I3 laptops are now going for $400 - less costly than a smaller tablet and yet much more versatile.

Shock and Vibraion Apps

You should take a look at the LuxCalc shock and vibration apps from Luxea Inc. Up to 3 DOF and linear and random vibe input. Drop Shock and different shock profiles (sawtooth, etc) are available.

Another iPad app

Very impressed with iPocket Draw. I quickly work with a client on a spontanelus idea or, particularly good, is to draw up a full CAD and walk through making moderate changes. Later we go back through the changes and verify on the 'big screen'.

The apps used in iPad are really very wonderful and in demand. They have some new concepts in them and are unique.

Re: Netbooks do the same job at half the price

Franckb- I agree with you that the Psion was a great product. I'd also like to mention the original Toshiba Libretto, circa 1996. This wasn't a tablet, but a true, downsized mini, right down to the chiclet-sized keys. I remember when I took it on airplanes, the flight atttendants always wanted to check it out.

Dear Alexander, I have to correct, the only credit I would give to Microsoft is to not have been able to propose any good solution to that market need. My credits are first for the “Psion” founders (David Potter, .. ; ref :http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/1434369.stm) who pushed since the 80’s for a solution for handheld computer, and created an advanced solution for the time (the Psion 3, 5, revo, netbook). And second for Apple (Steve Jobs) who broke the total inertia (Microsoft based-solutions) existing in that product line, proposed an innovative product (iphone, ipad) and did a superb work in proposing value for non-technical users. For the small story again, to remind the NON-support of Microsoft for those technologies, please listen to Steve Ballmer on Iphone (2007,  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eywi0h_Y5_U&feature=youtube_gdata_player ). This is going a little out of topic, but history of technology is one of my subject of interest.
