11 from 11 –> Apps

These are some of the best apps for iOS and Android that released in 2011, in my opinion. Not many were released in productivity that weren’t already available in prior years, and some of these will negatively impact your productivity, but they sure are fun.

Super 8 – Great alignment of useful + free + product launch (Super 8 film)
HBO Go – Great value proposition for gaining & retaining customers
Spotify US debut – Great roll out strategy (geography) to architect PR story about growth
Songza – How can there still be room for more music apps? Innovation
Songkick – Same as above
Tweetbot – Don’t you just live open source?
Jetpack Joyride – Just plain old school fun
Quarrel – Risk meets Scrabble… What’s not to love?
Forget-Me-Not (game) – Pac Man with ever-changing mazes
Apple iOS 5 – Not an app but makes apps greater

Honorable Mention:
Tiny Wings & Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery

What are your favorite Apps?

Follow my blog to check out the all-time best apps lists I’m pulling together…



  1. Love it…super 8 is my favorite from your list…just so cool! I gotta check out Quarrel..I am hooked on Words with Friends and now Scramble already 🙂 We love our apps. This isn’t an app, but we got this “Cinemon’ projector (http://tinyurl.com/6p8ym68) that projects movies onto the wall or anywhere from your iPhone/iTouch/iPad..dvd players too. That has been fun for slumber parties and stuff 🙂
    Hope you all are well!

  2. This looks like something you guys might have 🙂

  3. Very cool retro casing. What did we used to do with all those dead moments before apps? Stand in line and just look at the back of the person’s head in front of us?
