Push Cardz – Digital Business Cards

November 17, 2016

The key to small businesses is the contacts they make. Meeting and connecting with others is critical to help maintain and grow their business.

Once upon a time, people thought you had to use Windows to be productive. But Apple has put a lot of effort in to ensure that the iPad, along with iOS and the developer ecosystem on which it relies, is robust enough for even the most epic bouts of productivity — and focused enough to avoid distraction. Even Microsoft has gotten in on the act, making tablet-optimized versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more, all for iOS and the iPad.

Why switch from Windows 10 to iPad?
