Last night, after much procrastination , I started my taxes—on my couch with a movie playing on the TV, using only my iPad. I was testing out an early build of TurboTax , which is now available for the iPad (in addition to the online and desktop versions). I got through the bulk of my taxes by the time the movie was over. Taxes are never fun, even on the iPad. But the new TurboTax iPad app makes it fairly seamless. Anyone familiar with TurboTax will recognize the interface. It takes you through the same guided questions the online and desktop versions do, asks you about your financial situation, and keeps a tally of your refund up top (or, gulp, taxes you still owe). The app works in both landscape and portrait mode, and knows when to pop up a number keypad or the full keyboard.
