The number one app in this week’s list is Tracebuzz. As the name would suggest it’s a social media tool for the iPad that searches the web for the freshest buzz about a given brand, and then displays in visualized dashboards.
Tracebuzz works by asking the user to enter a term, whether their own name or a company brand, and then displaying all the recent tweets, blog posts, forum entries and several other types of items that contain a mention of that given keyword. It doesn’t display any historical data, but rather provides a convenient tool to assess social media presence on the fly.
FieldWork is an app designed specifically to handle interviews. You can add and remove surveys, view the location of interviewees and the current time in that area and access a number of additional functions that make the whole process a bit less tedious.
Analytics is a fairly straight-forward application that provides the templates and interface for visualizing site traffic data and other related information. It’s integrated with Google Analytics and features 100 report types and a lot of customization, in addition to sync with Dropbox and many other features that reiterate the emphasis on simplifying things.
