Last weekend I purchased a new iPad, which I plan to use for work when traveling (provided I can remove it from the grasp of my 5-year-old) instead of lugging my laptop to conferences and events. While I have used a few iPads in the past couple of years, I now find myself continually amazed by what they can do through all kinds of downloadable apps — many of which are free (including all the ones mentioned below).
After loading it up with a couple dozen great general interest apps, such as Google Earth, The Daily, Bloomberg, The Weather Channel, and of course, Angry Birds in a nod to the kids, I became curious about apps out there relating to life insurance. There is no shortage of them, particularly from carriers. But here are a few that caught my attention, and I would love to hear about more apps from readers via the comment tool below. I would also be interested in hearing about how you are using your iPad in your sales efforts.
