Why we like it: Figure is a simple enjoyable way to create electronic music. No need for knowledge, no need for solfège. The app is designed for the mobile user on the go. You can create a cool sound in few minutes combining drums, bass synth and lead synth together. The sound quality is good and the app has a beautiful minimalistic interface, each graphic element having a function or a purpose. It's a stimulating app to create your own addictive beat.
App: Sparrow (desktop) / (iPhone)
Price: $10.99 (desktop) / $2.99 (iPhone)
Why we like it: Light email client with a polished and very compact twitter-app-looking interface. It integrates with dropbox allowing you to automatically upload attachments just by drag-&-drop on the email body. The attachment then is replaced with the dropbox download link.
Why we like it: Gives simple, mouse window management by locating the left, right, and top edges of your screen as 'hot zones'. Drag a window until the mouse cursor enters one of these zones then drop the window to have it cinch into place. Nice and simple UI, works great with 2 monitors.
App: Bubble Mania
Category: Games Arcade/Family
Why we like it: Bubble Mania is based on the popular bubble popping concept similar to Bejeweled. The goal of the game is that as the mother critter you try to free your babies who are locked up in a maze of bubbles. The basic game play is extremely simple to understand and get into, with each level getting slightly more challenging, and each campaign introducing new game-features. The game has well placed in-app purchases, which can improve your gameplay but are not required to continue playing.
It has beautiful game graphics and matching animations - but most of all, its addictive, a game that is hard to put down, once you picked it up.

Why we like it: Dramatically simplifies the process of getting photos from your iPhone/iPad to your Mac. Great for transferring app screenshots for blog posts or iTunes Connect!
