Facebook Messenger always keeps you in touch

Who needs phone numbers when you have your Facebook friends list?

Facebook Messenger ties into the Facebook Messaging platform, but is also something entirely unto itself. It's a data-based (not carrier-based) texting service that lets you send pictures, a location, group messages, and more.

Vudu is on demand video through your browser

Vudu is a streaming movie service kind of like Netflix, except you get to pick and choose what you want to rent.

What's remarkable about Vudu is that you don't need to install an app to use it. Visit, pick a movie, and get started immediately, from within your iPad's (or computer's) browser.

Elements is a clean and uncluttered word processor for iPhone and iPad

Elements is one of our favourite word processors for iPhone and iPad (optimised for both), but version 2.0 just launched, bringing a ton of great new export features.

Elements already had great dropbox integration for documents, but now, you can publish your documents to Tumblr, Facebook, Evernote, HTML, a PDF, and email.

Price: $4.99

News360 now syncs to the cloud so you have your content everywhere

News360 is a great way to browse personalised news feeds catered to your interests, and with version 2.0, a web version just launched so you can browse on your computer from right where you left off on your iPhone or iPad.

The app also now includes incredible analytics features to help pick the best news for you--if you're cool with News360 scanning your Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader, and Evernote accounts, that is. We can't imagine a better place to look to pinpoint someone's interests.

Plango brings Facebook calendar to your iPhone

Plango is Facebook calendar for your iPhone, but also bundles in group messaging features and custom alerts for when friends respond to your events.

Apparently, the app is a bit buggy at this point, but considering it's free--it's worth a shot if you use Facebook Events frequently.

Jumvo makes sending voice messages easy

Jumvo is a voice-messaging app that lets you send messages without typing and without hassle. It's perfect for using in the car, or if you just don't want to type something out. Plus, it integrates with Facebook so you don't need to go around friending everyone again.

Jumvo is kind of like HeyTell, but better because it has a conversation view where you can backtrack and hear what's been said in the past very easily.

Trover is a different kind of social network

Trover is a social network that lets you share cool places to go with friends.

Whether it's a great hole-in-the-wall dive bar, scenic vista, or a unique thrift shop, Trover lets you attach a picture and location to a place, then lets all your friends see where you've been--and where they might want to go.

Boxee's new iPad app is a must if you're a Boxee fan

Boxee is one of our favourite home entertainment devices, and they just launched an iPad app to make it even easier to access your video content on the go.

Boxee ties into Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, media on your computer, and streams it all to your iPad over Wi-Fi. It's all your video media, in one place.

Boxee also works like AirPlay--find a video you like, then beam it to your tv for big screen watching.
