Like most people, I have a lot of apps on my iPhone and iPad. I don't use more than a handful and I move those to the first couple of “pages” for easy access.
I have rounded up twelve (more if you count iOS and Android) apps that I consider essentials for work. There is an app that I consider the best for unit conversion and the absolute best voice recording app I use for recording meetings so I don't miss anything and an app for those who like to take notes the old fashioned way. In all there are twelve different types of apps that are guaranteed to make your life easier at work. What more could you ask for?
I have also included a hearing test app for those of us that have been in the A/V industry and wondering if standing too close to the speakers has really had an effect on our hearing. It's no joke!
Who doesn't like a baker's dozen? At the end of the slide show, you'll find the app that I can't live without this time of the year. It is sure to please all because it works on just about every mobile device: iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows phone 7 and BlackBerry. This one is just for fun.

Music apps for the Mac and PC. From a simple 10-band equalizer made for Spotify to a simple volume booster to full-on audiophile applications that tout bit-perfect audio output and promise to output your CDs, your HD audio (88.1 KHz, 176 KHz, and more), your DSD, and any other audio perfectly to your DAC.
