With more than 10 billion Apple App Store downloads as of early 2011, there is literally an app for just about everything you can imagine—from carbon footprint calculators to addicting games like Angry Birds to apps that remember where you parked your car.
But did you know that there are a number of apps available to help you do more while you’re on the road, get partner news, test Internet speed, and even reboot a server from 30,000 feet? And in our newest app, the Cisco Small Business Solution Builder for the iPad, we’ll arm you with an arsenal of sales tools.

Cisco Live: Catalyst 6500 and Sup2T: Engaging attendees with Mobile Devices
With the launch of the Sup2T supervisor, and associated line cards (69xx), for the Catalyst 6500 Family Switches, Cisco embarked on an innovative strategy to help attendees learn about the features of the Catalyst 6500 family of switches, by providing a simple “Trivia Game” that attendees could play by downloading a Catalyst 6500 Mobile app, directly to their mobile devices.
Over 780 attendees completed the trivia game on iPhones and iPads, and each day at Cisco Live, three “winners” were randomly picked from all the attendees who had answered the most trivia questions correctly.
The mobile app, available at the iTunes app store, was a huge success, especially with its contextual set of features and content, centered around the Catalyst 6500 family of switches.

Mobile devices have changed the way we manage our lives—in fact, just the other day I used apps on my smartphone to pull up recipes and locate a nearby grocery store. (Now only if there were an app that could enable a smartphone to cook dinner.)
Did you know that there’s an app that can help you manage your Unified Computing System (UCS), too? UCSand, which is available for Android phones and can be found in the Android Market, enables you to monitor and control your UCS. Sounds pretty cool, don’t you think?
It definitely can be a useful tool, according to Colby Cousens, Systems Administrator for the City of Melrose, Massachusetts.
The city has a secure, multi-tenant FlexPod architecture in their data center. This solution provides the City of Melrose with the ability to offer secure network, storage, and compute resources to their partner communities.
“One of my own shortcomings regarding UCS is that I don’t get into the manager as often as I should to check events and warnings on the system,” Colby said. “The UCSand app highlights the value of Cisco’s XML-API in allowing a program to pull targeted data out of the UCS Manager without requiring an individual to navigate through extra configurations or information at the time.”
