Multitasking Browser for iPad

This app, which lets you track a Twitter feed, update your Facebook status, or keep tabs on the weather all while browsing other Web sites on an iPad, works reasonably well. But in its present iteration, Multitasking Browser doesn't offer the kind of upside necessary to tempt you away from Safari.

This free app can guide you to live theater and other performances, though it seems to work best in major metropolitan areas.

Spector Pro Mac 2010

Undercover monitoring software lets you see everything that happens on your Mac.

Wyse PocketCloud for iPhone and iPad

What we said about this app when it was an iPhone- and iPod touch-only offering is still true now that it's optimized to run on the iPad: PocketCloud significantly ups the game for remote computer access.

Converter for iPad

This thoughtfully designed conversion utility makes great use of the iPad's large screen to help you tap and drag your way to unit conversion nirvana.

SpectorSoft’s eBlaster Mac 2010 is a powerful tool for surreptitiously monitoring every keystroke someone makes on their computer.

Vlingo for iPhone

This app offers great voice recognition capabilities and proves to be a fantastic tool for hands-on, spoken text and e-mail messages. But it's not a truly hands-free app and is subject to many of the limitations and dangers of using your phone when your eyes should be somewhere else.

Spark Radio for iPhone and iPad

This streaming Internet radio tuner offers excellent options and features across all of the devices running Apple's iPhone OS.

Apple’s iPad word processor offers amazing features but lacks basic and necessary printing and file sharing options.

Trip Journal and Noteworthy Places for iPhone

These two mobile travel apps use GPS to keep track of where you've been and what's great. Trip Journal is a handy app you'll enjoy having along for the ride, but Noteworthy Places has an unfortunate flaw that makes it less than notable.
