Cool App


Side-by-Side (with Dropbox Support)

Platform: iPad

Price: Free or $1.99 for Pro


Research on the iPad is often difficult to do because you are constantly flipping between web apps and note taking apps. This is where Side-by-Side can really help. It splits the screen to display a web browser on one side and a note taking app on the other to allow for easy copying and pasting and writing. In addition, Side-by-Side can also display documents and images in the split screens.

Final Thoughts

This app isn't the most awe inspiring but it is useful. The free version and the paid version are identical except for the ad that runs on the free version.
