Shadow

Because you forget so much of what you dream almost instantly, at some point in your life you've probably thought it would be a worthwhile pursuit to maintain a journal full of your crazy shut-eye antics. Shadow ($8) takes the idea of a dream journal, and expands on it, making it into a smartphone app. It's part alarm clock, part dream journal, and part cloud-connected application, letting you record your dreams as you wake up, either by voice or text. But, Shadow has loftier ambitions than being just another dream journal. After you record your dreams, certain keywords and data about your dreams are added anonymously to a database, collecting information from a yet-untapped datasource: our collective subconscious.

  • Mem:o

    Whether you want to track every purchase you make at the grocery, the number of hours you spent at the gym, or every book you've ever read, do so with the charmingly simple data visualization app Mem:o (Free). It allows you to view each snippet of data, or memo, as a circle, with bits of text and numbers to help add meaning. You then collect each of these related memos onto a board or calendar, letting you see all your information at once. Share your collections with friends on Facebook or Twitter, or just hoard them all and reflect back some day.

  • Parallels Access

    Remotely access any software on your Mac or PC as if it were a native iOS app from your iPad with Parallels Access ($Free). No matter where you are in the world, so long as you have an active internet connection, you can use software from your home or office machine, and access files. Features like tapping, swiping, pinching, and scrolling make it feel like you are working on an application meant for your iPad, while select, drag, copy, and paste let you seamlessly switch between remote apps and iPad apps. A built-in app launcher and app switcher keep you as productive as you would be on your full-size machine.
