One should accept the fact that Games are very popular in the App Store. However, there are a lot of great apps in other areas too. Tons of developers are dishing out quality utility apps every day. You can organize them into a variety of categories such as Audio & Video, Business & Health and Fitness. Let me introduce three extremely handy apps today.
Astral Traveler: If you are interested in meditation, then Astral Traveler is the app, you should look at. This app has two parts - Astral Traveler and Multiverse. Both of them provide an ecstatic combination of visual and audio that could mesmerize any user. Users can also set meditation reminders with it. This app hasn't been updated since it was launched. Let us hope that developers would come up with an update that could make it an even better one. However, the first version itself seems to be fine. Astral Traveler is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and it requires iOS 4.0 or later. There is also an exclusive HD version is available for iPads. It has videos, so Astral Traveler is a bit bulky (154 MB) and it costs USD 1.99.
SalesVu: As shoppers prefer plastic money to pay, vendors are looking for a more convenient way to process the payments. SalesVu is one among the very few apps that could do this efficiently. With this free app, vendors can manage all of their locations, accept various forms of payments and track sales and customer data on the go. At present, it processes payments for 2.70 transaction fee, which is lower than the competitors like Square. Vendors from the U. S. can get a card reader for free; for an additional reader, they need to pay USD 99 - we hope that developers would give some thinking over this price. SalesVu is compatible with iPad and it requires iOS 3.2 or later. There is also one iPad version available for this app. This app has already been popular and one would expect it to grow like payment services such as PayPal and Money Bookers.
JamCast: This app lets users record and share videos on the go. Fans can use the regular camera to record the events while performers can use the front camera. The events can be shared in two ways - Private and Public. In Private option, users can share the video by adding up to five emails. The Public feature lets users post it on YouTube. The shared videos would also be saved by the app for the future use. The developers could have added a section for guidance. JamCast is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch (4th generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G and it requires iOS 3.0 or later. It costs USD 0.99.
App Store has a huge number of apps and it is a bit hard for the new users to find good ones. I hope that these three apps would help you transform your business and lifestyle. We would love to hear your thoughts about them below.
