    Feedly

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: Free

    From the exodus created by Google Reader, Feedly has quickly picked up quite a few users.

    This app is great for quick or casual perusal of your RSS feeds. It looks nice, has some good gestures (which they recently switched the orientation of, presumably to allow for Flipbook like page flipping), and opens the linked stories in its own WebView, rather than jumping the user over into a browser session.

    For people that consume RSS items by the hundreds, ie, journalists, Feedly isn't quite the RSS-munching app that is needed.

    For everyone else, it's worth a look as your Google Reader replacement.

    Meeting-Recorder

    Platform: iOS

    Price: $1.99

    Here's a nice way to organise audio memos: In calendar format. Add to this the ability to add sound and video to the recording with iCloud support, and it's a great mix.

    Certainly a step up from the default recording apps available on various mobile platforms.

    Kickoff

    Platform: iOS

    Price: $7.49

    If your team is making use of Kickoff collaboration software, then well done on being in such a homogenous office environment.

    This companion app for iOS provides the on-the-go functionality that we've seen before in collaboration apps.

    The desktop app is available in the Apple Mac Store for $27.99.
