Christopher Coulter posted his top list of the 10 applications to show off the TabletPC platform in a comment on this article – which I referred to in an earlier post.
In his intro Christopher also implies that the “killer app” for the tablet depends on who is holding it. Couldn’t agree more. The list is reproduced below – some applications I know and some I’ll have to check out on it.
1. ArtRage (Has no equal in Wow! factor) / Experience Pack goes here now.
2. Alias SketchBook Pro (Close second)
3. FranklinCovey TabletPlanner 3 (Heavens to Betsy!)
4. MindManager X5 Pro (for some an easy #1, near killer-app if one use/gets the concept, if not, then skip.)
5. OneNote/Journal (Practical and impressive. Easily understood)
6. Corel Grafigo 2 / xThink Calculator (also MathPratice) (Keep on Shape Reco'ing me...)
7. MS Reader and Zinio Reader (eBooking still not yet a force, but still has some Wow! power)
8. The New York Times Crossword Puzzle / Music Composition Tool / Dots / Pool / Tic Tac Toe (Nifty, if just fun gimmicks)
9. TabletUML (for those on planet UML that is, if not never mind...)
10. ActiveDocs, OrderPad and form-filling software (could be #1 dependent upon audience, harder to grasp for most, they think just part of the system)
Honorable mentions: MSN Messenger 6.1+, PenOffice, Agilix GoBinder, Opera Web Browser, The Brain.
