FileMaker Go is a true FileMaker client with support for almost every major feature of its bigger brother, FileMaker Pro.

iNapkin 2 for iPad

This iPad app for sketching out ideas and jotting down notes is certainly functional. But there are some minor user interface issues, and the app really doesn't stand out from similar offerings in the App Store.

Mobile Active Defense for iPhone

This app promises to help guard your iPhone from malicious mail, and its approach is pretty straightforward. Still, our tests were unable to indicate just how much safer your e-mail is with this $17 app and service. Still, a free version lets you try Mobile Active Defense for free to judge for yourself.

Password Caddy for iPhone

Password manager applications are all about security and convenience. This app, while not perfect, handles both aspects well.

TapMeDo Pro for iPhone

This task manager, while a little unpolished in some areas, is easy to use and a worthwhile option if you're looking to get organized.

Popplet for iPad

This clever mind-mapping, brainstorming, and idea-collection app for the iPad has a few notable limitations. But Popplet's attractive interface and ease of use make it hard to resist.

Three SSH terminal apps for iPhone

We take a look at three remote SSH clients that run on your iPhone (and in one case, your iPad). Each has their limitations, but two of the three apps we looked at have noteworthy strengths.

Fast Contacts for iPhone

For users who want more than what the iPhone's Contacts app provides by default, Fast Contacts is a decent contact manager that certainly deserves a look.

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.

Virtual Horse Racing 3D HD for iPad

This horse racing game tries to bring the giddy thrill of cashing in on a winning bet to your iPad. There are some nice details to the game, but ultimately, it finishes out of of the money.

Air Display for iPad

This app lets you use your iPad as a virtual external monitor for your Mac. It's a charming idea, an excellent iPad parlor trick, and could even prove genuinely useful in a variety of unique use cases. But the app isn't an ideal long-term second monitor solution.

Penultimate for iPad

This note-taker for the iPad makes it easy to scrawl out quick notes or sketches with your finger. But a lack of options makes it hard to consider Penultimate a great note-taking or drawing app.
