    Fantastical

    by Flexibits Inc.

    Sure, Siri has you covered when creating quick calendar entries, but your voice needs a more powerful tool when working with your calendar. Fantastical takes natural language input to easily add items to your schedule. By using the voice dictation feature of iOS, you can say "Mow the lawn every other Saturday" and Fantastical will know exactly what that means, then schedule it. Its innovative horizontal timeline keeps a minimal interface for the days while a list of events neatly scrolls underneath. It also has a powerful search and a companion Mac client if you want the full experience.

    Not sure where to get a bite to eat? Ness is your perfect recommendation app. Open it up and Ness locates where you are and figures in the time of day to come up with a beautiful list of places to eat. Each restaurant is presented in a card view, similar to app switching in iOS 7. If one catches your eye a swipe up reveals buttons to call or get directions. You'll also be able to share the location via email or SMS. When you first open Ness you're asked to pick five types of food you love and then five types you hate. You can then rate places it suggests to help for next time. If you link it to your Foursquare account it becomes even more powerful. Best of all is the speed in which Ness works. You can go from confusion to decision in under a minute.

    Jenga

    by NaturalMotion

    Apple used this app to show off the iPhone's gyroscope; the stack of Jenga blocks rotate as you physically rotate. The effect is quite amazing and it's like that tower of blocks is really in front of you. This app is well done and plays a lot like the wooden version, without the hassle of re-stacking all of those pieces. Jenga is a prime example of a game that translates perfectly to iOS and adds some killer features.
