SAP Retail Execution – by SAP

SAP Retail Execution, an iPhone/iPad app from SAP, helps consumer goods manufacturers coordinate their sales activities on site at the retailer. Visually appealing in its design, the app connects to the retailer’s SAP CRM system and offers an exceptional range of industry-specific functions: promotion planners and sales staff can coordinate their store visits, create and control sales promotions and campaigns, run audits and queries, and review planograms. A history enables users to propose replenishment orders and adjust the product mix that is ordered. They can also use the app to set complex and hybrid pricing models.

Platform: iPhone/iPad

The app is available at iTunes.

Splashtop 2 – by Splashtop

Do you want Microsoft Windows on your iPhone, iPad, or Android mobile phone? That’s not a problem, thanks to Splashtop 2. This app is perfect for those who work on mobile devices that aren’t compatible with the Microsoft Windows environment. All users need to do is download the app to their mobile device (iPhone/iPad, Android, Windows RT), install a small application on the target PC, and off they go via WLAN or over the standard 3G/4G. The app displays the PC desktop on the mobile device and gives users full remote access to their PC. Operation is intuitive and unrestricted on all platforms: Users report that all Windows applications, even 3D games, are stable and reliable on the app. Designed for private use only, Splashtop 2 can control up to five devices. It has received excellent reviews, and costs €5.99 ($6.99) in the iTunes Store. The provider offers corresponding services for business use.

Cubetto Flowchart – by Semture

Still a newcomer, this app has been receiving rave reviews: Cubetto Flowchart puts together appealing flowcharts and mind maps on iPads and iPhones. The app takes care of the positioning and layout of the content itself, so models are created quickly. A context menu with functions such as “Undo,” “Redo,” and “Search” helps you during modeling, as do customizable attributes for individual chart objects. Charts can be exported as PDF, PNG, XML, or e-mail. The app also contains interfaces to Dropbox and iTunes. More demanding users will be pleased by the optional add-ons offering templates for complex process maps and organigrams, including hierarchy systems. The app costs €8.99 ($9.99) and is available in several languages.

Where??? – by Tony Hulme App Development

The iPhone/iPad app “Where???” is handy for both business and private use: users can store cities or locations to a card system and personalize it with other information, links, and images. The app provides a global map that is very similar to Google Maps. The map contains a small menu that helps the user navigate and zoom. It is also very easy for users to “pin” locations, for example of places they have visited or still want to visit. These different colored pins also serve as thumbnails for storing short text descriptions, images, and links. Different “looks” are available when navigating the map, such as satellite view or map view. This young app turns a great idea into reality in an appealing way, costs €0.89 ($0.99), and is currently available in English only.

Parkbud – by Wunderstadt

To quote one excited driver – or should we say “parker” – this mobile app “has all the right features.” The app for the iPhone/iPad has been around for some time now but is constantly being upgraded with new functions, which makes it well worth mentioning: Parkbud is a handy assistant that helps car drivers conquer classic navigation and parking problems in the city. It has a reminder function for parking times as well as a map system that displays city-specific information such as nearby parking garages, restaurants, or gas stations. Users can also pin locations and other points of interest to help them navigate through urban jungles. Also practical: Locations can be exported directly from the app via e-mail, SMS, Facebook, or Twitter. It also includes handy functions such as a compass, camera, and notepad. And because it interfaces to other navigation apps from Navigon, Waze, and TomTom, users can enjoy an even wider range of additional features for navigating, traveling, and parking. The function menu is easily customizable. The app is available in several languages for €1.79 ($1.99).
