Don't-Miss Business Mobility Stories

OmniGraffle and OmniGraphSketcher for iPad

Creating and editing diagrams and wireframes with OmniGraffle for iPad feels fun and functional, with an astounding amount of features at your disposal. OmniGraphSketcher is mostly a delight to use if you need to create eye-popping charts quickly. Both apps have a handful of kinks to work out, though.

Touch-Fill-Go for iPhone

This app, which lets you scan documents with the iPhone's built-in camera and then fill in those documents on your mobile device, is a good productivity tool with the potential to be a great one.

Tales of Monkey Island

The Monkey Island series from LucasArts dates back to 1990. The latest iteration, a LucasArts collaboration with Telltale Games, is entitled Tales of Monkey Island, and it’s a massively sprawling and frequently amusing game.

NoteMaster for iPhone

If you're looking for a feature-rich note-taker for your iPhone or iPod touch, NoteMaster certainly fits the bill. But there are more elegant options available in the App Store.

Buffalo Dualie

Buffalo’s Dualie is two things in one. It’s a dock for your iPhone or iPod and a dock for a portable 500GB hard drive.

Pocket Informant for iPhone

This $10 productivity tool is a beast of an app -- and we mean that as a positive. Dense and feature-rich, Pocket Informant aims to replace the iPhone's built-in calendar and serve as a task/to-do list manager, too.

Billings Touch for iPhone

Whether on its own or in tandem with Marketcircle's desktop Billings app, this mobile time tracker and invoicing application has no parallel on the iPhone or iPod touch.

1Password and 1Password Pro for iPhone

This bill reminder app looks gorgeous, but looks aren't everything. After a few minutes of using Bills ~ On Your Table, some unfortunate limitations become apparent.

Wyse PocketCloud for iPhone

Anyone who wants to control their desktop from their iPhone or iPod touch must contend with the limited screen space on their mobile device. This app tackles that problem with a flash of ingenuity, optimizing screen space without significant sacrifices in usability.

iPhone business card scanners

Since the business world today still clings to the relic of eras past known as the business card, and since tapping in those details can be a bit painful, several apps exist to scan cards in with the iPhone 3GS's camera. Lex Friedman looks at a quartet of apps, with WorldCard Mobile standing out from the pack.

Waveboard for iPhone

This app, which accesses Google Wave, isn't much different than accessing the collaboration service through the mobile browser on your iPhone or iPod touch. But the recent addition of push notifications is a step in the right direction.

Spank A Monkey for iPhone

Spank A Monkey stars Sugar, the monkey. The game's objective is to make Sugar happy by following her four simple commands: lift, shake, pinch, or spank. Do so enough times in sequence without error and you earn a banana and advance to the next level where it is more of the same.
