The 13 best new software apps from Demo

Services designed to make your life easier


We've rounded up the 13 hottest new products from this year's DEMO conference - known as the launchpad for emerging technology.

Article One Partners AOP Patent Studies

The goal of this technology is to apply Web 2.0 collaborative technology to the field of patent research. In other words, if you're a company looking to see if your patent claim will hold up in court, you can use AOP's community of patent advisers to help you out.

Article One says that it charges clients for an annual subscription that will give them "real-time access to validity evidence" and communication "with AOP's scientific community... to optimise their research".

Tungle for iPhone

Tungle, which first debuted last year at Demo, is a planning application that helps friends and coworkers share their calendars and create schedules for meetings based on availability.

The application is now available for the iPhone and it will let iPhone users sync with Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple iCal and Entourage for Macs.
