Klout finally makes it way to the iPhone, Norton provides us with a great way to store our passwords, and LinkedIn finally gets iPad support.

    You’re a Cult of Mac writer? Must have Apps? All of the paid ones have app counterparts for free that do the same thing. An app for Klout….egomaniacs and Epeen users? Norton Password storage….an app forcing and requiring the user to use a non-Apple based browser, to provide mandatory use for keychain access?

    How the hell did you get this job? More like ‘must have apps because I am desperate to fill my quota’.

    Some of them are ok I guess, nothing i feel i “must have” though

    The only thing on this list that catches my eye is Klout. not because I would ever use it but because my little brother just finished a book report for school on the realities behind the books Uglies and Extras from the Westerfield quartet and Klout sounds like it could have been ripped out of the latter one to a degree.

    Norton’s not available outside the U.S.

    I’m not sure I’d trust Norton for anything, especially passwords–and this is years since I removed every trace of Norton products from my Macs due to their chronic tendency to slow down and crash. Back in the days of OS 7 and 8, Norton Utilities was essential for keeping my Macs running well and perky. Then Norton changed its focus, stopped developing Norton Utilities and concentrated on virus/malware protection for the Mac (surprising because of the well-known security and lack of malware for the Mac). Norton Antivirus was buggy, awful and unneeded software that created MANY more problems than it solved. They got rid of a supremely useful tool and kept a dog. Now they want me to trust them for protecting my passwords? Nope.

    How does Norton Identity Safe compare to 1Password?

    Are these the weeks best apps or the weeks best sponsored apps? Cuz….these kind of suck.

    Klout app? Check out SocialLadder – the iPhone app that not only shows you how you rank against others in terms of influence but also gives you the ability to get exclusive local deals – all based on your score.

    Er… you’re missing the point. This is a list of must-have apps that were released or updated within the past week, as it quite clearly states in the first paragraph. The whole point of these features is to keep them fresh, otherwise they’d pretty much be exactly the same each week.

    Sure, some of them may not be must-have apps to you, but they will be to other readers.
