iPhone:

Anchor by Tomfoolery, Inc. by Tomfoolery, Inc. (Free, 18.2 MB): Get more in touch with your coworkers through this business-based social app. The idea is very similar to Facebook, except cleaner and only involves those you work with. Sure, you can collaborate on professional projects, however, don’t be afraid to strike up post about the latest gossip, your child’s achievements, a new car, etc. Status posts may include photos, links, location details, and mentions of others. In addition, anyone can make a comment to a post and see who’s viewed it thus far, which is nice to be aware if someone has checked out project details or simply as a way to see the popularity. The app features a flat UI, push notifications, profile picture and cover image, automatically makes a connection to others in your company, and requires sign-up of a free account using your company assigned email address.

iPad:

Impulse for iPad by EdGE@TERC / GameGurus (Free, 19.5 MB): Have some brain stirring fun with this physics-based action-arcade game. Simple, yet challenging, your task is to direct a green particle to the energy target using strategically timed pulses. To create the small burst of omnidirectional waves, simply tap anywhere in the play area. When navigating, keep in mind two very important details. The first thing to remember is that every pulse drains energy, eventually preventing you from manipulating its path. Fact number two, the green particle is stable enough to bounce off of the walls, however, it will not withstand collisions with other particles. Overall, just be efficient and cautious. The game features 2.5-D graphics with a gadget-themed UI and 70 levels.
