Expense Reports Counts, Tracks and Reports Your Pennies
If you travel frequently and your expense reports tend to be complicated, you'll probably find Nexonia's Expense Reports will make your life on the road, if not free, at least easier.
The fittingly named Expense Reports gives you the ability to create and manage your expense reports, both on your iPhone and online at Nexonia's Web site.
WiFi Disk Simplifies Shuttling Files from Handheld to Desktop
A few minutes after you take your iPhone or iPod touch out of the box and poke around, it will hit you: "Man, I need an easy way to transfer files." Take a look at WiFi Disk, from Headlight Software when you see the light.
Voxie Pro Recorder Rolls Up Everything Into One
I've looked at a number of voice recorder apps, and they're all similar, which isn't surprising, given their primary purpose. What's different about Voxie Pro Recorder & Dictation, Bottle Rocket's app is that it has all the features of the others rolled into one with I think a few extras mashed in.
iDicto Voice Recorder Has Great Features but Needs Refinement
At last count, the App Store featured something like 60 apps with voice recording capabilities. DAVA Consulting's iDicto happens to be among one of the better ones I've tried for simple voice-note-taking.
Mail2Group: One App to Mail Them All
If you often need to send emails to more than a few people in your contacts list at the same time, then Javid Alimohideen's Mail2Group fills a gaping hole between iPhone Mail and Contacts.
Mail2Group is an adjunct to the iPhone's native email app.
iOwn Answers a Question that Wasn't Asked
Does your stuff want to come with you wherever you go? iOwn, from Fifth Floor Media, is a personal inventory system designed so that you can keep track of your household possessions, hobby collections, small business inventory and other collections of stuff in your pocket.
ZeptoPad Works as Well as a Gas-Guzzling Hybrid
ZeptoPad, from the company of the same name, reminds me of a hybrid car that gets only 10 miles to the gallon. It's a terrific idea, but it's hard to see why you might actually want one.
ZeptoPad at its core is a sketch pad.
Smart Dial Streamlines Calling Contacts
Gary Fung's Smart Dial is yet another take on the many different ways you can dial telephone numbers stored on your iPhone.
Smart Dial is as streamlined as they come. Instead of scrolling through your contacts list to find the name of the person you wish to call, launch Smart Dial and start spelling out his or her name using the number keypad.
Jott Your Notes with Your Voice Instead of a Keyboard
The first time you use Jott, a voice recorder from Jott Networks, you get the feeling that you've just seen something that's crazy, in a good way.
There's not much to the voice recorders in the App Store.
ABContacts Makes Group Contact Management as Easy as 1-2-3
ABContacts - We all know the old saying, "It's not what you know, but who you know." In this social-networking, job-connecting and deal-making world we live in now, that adage is more true than ever.
iTalk, It Listens, Voice Recorder from Griffin Technology
iTalk Recorder, according to Griffin Technology, the developer, is "WAY more than a voice recorder." That's partly true. Unfortunately, the "way more" part is still not enough to put it on par with many of the other voice recording apps in the App Store.
WhereIsMyTime - Time Never Stops but at Least You'll Know Where It Went
Where did all the time go? If you're like most people, you're bound to ask yourself that question more than a few times in a week. With Brainsoft Labs' WhereIsMyTime, you can keep a record of how you spend your time your day, week or month's activities.
Gas Cubby Has a Groovy Kind of Thing Going
With three cars and a motorcycle in our household, I'm constantly trying to stay on top of scheduled maintenance. When was the last time I changed the oil in my wife and daughter's cars? I know I wrote the mileage and date down on a piece of paper, but where did the paper go?
BeamMe, Fliq, or give Handshakes to Friends
One of the shortcomings of the iPhone's contacts management is the inability to quickly send someone contact information. It is a feature found in some other smartphone operating systems and a real need if you are a business user.
iSpreadsheet: An iPhone Excel app for number crunchers
Editing documents has been one of the major holes in the iPhone experience. While the e-mail and other apps give a solid performance in letting one view and send files, the ability to manipulate them has been lacking.
