My family has it's own business and recently bought an ipad to make business easier. My dad isn't happy, though, because he doesn't like itunes. He wants to drag and drop pdf and other documents on a tablet and doesn't want anything else. I set up the ipad with goodreader and other office apps, but still he was not happy.

Than he heard about the Nexus 7 and he wants to buy it. I want to know if this thing actually can help him with business. Are there good business apps, like office apps and easy to use pdf readers and other things you use for business, available for android tablets.

If not, could someone give me some tips for apps that are essentials for business users for the ipad and iphone that are very easy to understand and boost your productivity?

An unjailbroken iPad will not give your father native support for "just plugging in and dragging and dropping". That's one of the places where Android really shines.

Office apps are plentiful on Android, and keyboards (and even mice if you so choose) work flawlessly with it. I've heard a lot of great things about the Nexus 7 and with such a low price it would certainly be cheaper to deploy in larger quantities (if you ever get to that point) than something like an iPad.

I can't say I feel any different about iTunes than your dad does. Even the Mac versions are starting to get bloated, but that's my opinion. Seriously though just go try one out, if your initial experience is positive, go ahead and get one or two to toy with. Even if you decide you hate them, and for some reason can't return them, they're still much cheaper (and in my personal opinion better) than the iPad.

Best Of Luck

I agree with that iTunes is getting way too bloated. I switched to Spotify. I only use iTunes now to insert a song, because I made it so that it reads iTunes's XML for my library.

I went out and looked for a Nexus 7. They were no where in stock near where we live. We looked at a similar size tablet, though, and my dad did not anticipate how small 7" actually is. So, he's going back to the ipad idea.. There is good news, though! One of his employees found an app that worked a lot better for him. In conclusion, he's probably going to get another iPad. Still, thank you for your answer!

There's QuickOffice, Docs to Go, Google Docs (Drive), there are a lot of options since it's Android. There's also the good ol' Adobe Reader if you want to use a PDF reader.
