As those of you who know are aware, I use the Playbook quite a lot for business purposes, note taken, recording meetings, doing presentations, simple spreadsheets, taking photographs of the work site etc. The size of the Playbook and quality of the camera makes it an ideal tablet to carry around and with the blackberry bridge functionality it allows me to view files and send them over BES on my BB. So I am constantly looking out for Apps that would make my life easier.

The latest one that I have found is called Handy Scanner, which allows you to take a picture of a document using the Playbooks camera, or a whiteboard, or anything, and output it as a PDF which can then be emailed, or uploaded to one of the cloud services you are using. It also allows you to convert any image to PDF, for $1.99 I think this is a bargain. You can find it at:

I also have PDFCreator which allows you to edit PDF documents, add or remove pages, create a PDF from a file.
