Lookout Mobile Security

While VirusBarrier is the only AV tool for iOS, Lookout is available on iOS, but this version doesn’t scan for viruses. It does back up your contacts and let you locate a missing iPhone over the Internet. It will show you on a map, using your phone’s GPS, where the device is. Also, Lookout will warn you if you are connected to an unsecured Wi-Fi network. It will alert you to out-of-date software and to iOS updates that haven’t yet been installed, and it will tell you if an app is trying to track your location.

Developer: Lookout

Cost: Free

Available on Android too? Yes

herematch

This location-based service is designed to help you make new business connections in real time. The app can be linked to your LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook accounts, so that when you check into a place or event, your status will be automatically updated on social networks. When you are at a networking event, herematch shows you a list of people who have checked in who match with you, either because they need the services you provide or you need the services they provide. Click on a person listed, and the app displays a picture, the reasons you were matched, and a short bio.

CrowdCall

This is a mobile conference call service. Unlike most conferencing or group call services, CrowdCall doesn’t use dial-in numbers or pins. The host of the conference simply selects the participants from a contact list (or from a preselected group of participants) and touches the “Call” button. CrowdCall then creates an instant conference. Once the host receives a call from CrowdCall, every other participant is called and the conference begins.

Developer: SocialDial

Cost: Free for 500 minutes/month to 40 countries; $9.99 for 1,000 minutes; $49.99 for 10,000 minutes; or unlimited calling to 40 countries for $99.99.
