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.

ABContacts Makes Group Contact Management as Easy as 1-2-3

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.

Gas Cubby Has a Groovy Kind of Thing Going

beamME Sends Contact Info to Anyone, not Just iPhone Users
The beamMe app is a fast, easy way to share your contact information with a friend or colleague. It is an offering from rmbrME, which promotes the app as a way to boost your sales and connections through the quick ability to share your contact.
Fliq is a Great Concept, but Not Seamless Just Yet
The strength of Fliq lies in its relative ease-of-use for transferring contacts and photos. Plus it is free, unlike the paid version of Handshake. With just a couple of taps you can send out photos from your collection along with your contact information.
Handshake Shares Contact Info — With Other Handshake Users
In business the handshake often comes with a business card. The makers of the Handshake app hope to put the entire process on your iPhone. The app — there is a free and paid version — gives you the ability to send contact information (yours or someone from your contact list) or photos.
