I have been writing what I call “Developer of the Week” posts for the last several months- although not every week I grant you :) – so I figured I would try and follow suit with apps each week.  The “Apps of the Week” posts will try to promote apps by local developers as well as general cool apps that I come across.  So here’s to the first edition of '”Apps of the Week”.  If you want to have your app highlighted, comment below, contact me via email, or on twitter @jquickwit.
