8 Expensive iPad Apps Worth the Cost

While this app is primarily for hair salon owners, it can make the entire experience of getting your hair cut or styled better for you too. The MyChair app lets salon owners manage their business on an iPad: Stylists can book appointments, manage contact info for each customer and enter tips. Another helpful feature of the app lets hair salon owners send "thank-you" emails to customers.

No one likes sitting in a hair salon and waiting, especially if the stylist is running behind. So if salon owners are more organized, there's a strong chance the whole hair cutting experience will be faster!

iDispatcher Pro
Managing a business is tough -- there are tons of moving parts. The iDispatcher Pro app aims to help users get organized when it comes to dealing with the minute details of their business.

According to the app's page on the iTunes App Store, it "lets you build and track service calls, customer service histories, customer lists, equipment lists, parts, and invoices."

Furthermore, the app does not use the Web -- any data you input is held only on the app itself. And once you buy the app, you have access to it for life without additional fees or subscriptions.

If your business deals heavily with invoices, you can email them as a PDF directly from the app, which cuts out the step of having to go back to the office computer and print/scan the signed invoices!

Zeptopad Planner Note
When you randomly come up with that million-dollar business idea or invention that could change the world and you don't have a piece of paper to jot it down on, fear no more. The Zeptopad Planner Note app helps users remember and keep track of their ideas in many ways.

First, you can draw on the screen of the app as if it were a whiteboard to create concept maps, diagrams or simple notes to express your ideas. Why would this be useful? Anything to help showcase your ideas or motivate you to put those concepts into action is worth investing in. After all, your idea may result in a multimillion-dollar business.

In keeping with the theme of getting tasks accomplished, the Omnifocus app can help you organize your to-do lists.

If going to the grocery store is on your list of things to accomplish, the app features an interactive map to show you where the nearest store is. You can also make notes by using the app's voice and image features.
