Spend this week making new contacts and networking with my facecard, today’s leading Fresh iPhone App. It lets you make an interactive digital business card you can customize to share with the people you meet, and it encapsulates all your information, from your phone number to your Twitter handle. It’s followed up by Trulia Rentals, a handy app for anyone out looking for a new apartment, and lets you search for both new places to rent and for what businesses would be found in your neighborhood. Rogue Ninja, an old-school roguelike role-playing game complete with 8-bit graphics, kicks off the week’s games, followed closely by DevilDark: The Forgotten Kingdom, a top-down action RPG.

my facecard (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Quickly and easily share your contact information and make networking easier with my facecard, an app that allows users to create digital business cards that can be shared between iOS devices. The cards you can make are fully customizable, allowing you to add your information to them as well as photos from your camera roll. You can also choose the colors you use on the cards and then share them with others using your device’s Bluetooth capabilities when you meet people.

The cool thing about facecards is that they’re fully interactive, so as you gather cards from contacts, you can quickly access the information found on them just by tapping. You can make calls from the card, fire off messages or even view social network profiles quickly and easily. It’s a fast way to convey all your information and make it easy for people to save, and to gather new contacts and find everything you need to know about them.

Trulia Rentals (iPhone, iPad) Free

Pare down the time it takes you to find your next apartment with the help of your iPhone or iPad and Trulia Rentals. Leveraging the power of the Trulia website, the app is designed specifically to help make finding a new apartment, especially on the go, a lot easier. You’re able to search specific areas for properties, get alerts for when new houses or apartments come onto your markets, and easily share listings with others.

Not only does Trulia Rentals make finding the properties you’re looking for easier and show you when they came onto the market, it also allows you to check the area around prospective places so you can see what it might be like to live there. The app shows you things like nearby grocery stores and other businesses, so you’ll know if your dream apartment is located in a nightmare neighborhood. You can also use the app to contact landlords and property managers.

Rogue Ninja (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Rogue Ninja is an old-school “roguelike” role-playing game out of which fans of 8-bit titles should get a kick. It puts you in the role of a ninja and sets you off to scour dungeons and fight enemies in the style of titles such as the original Legend of Zelda. It’s also pretty tough, much like its inspiration, so you’ll need all your gamer skills to best it.

Rogue Ninja features randomized dungeons, so every time you play it, you’ll get a fresh experience. It uses a Japanese setting and is filled with enemies to fight and items to find that will alter the way you play as you adventure through the world.

DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Another top-down role-playing-style game, DevilDark puts you into a kingdom under attack by hordes of monsters, hands you a sword, and sends you out to kick monster butt. The action-adventure title has you accepting quests from the people you meet and venturing out into the land to complete their missions, earning new weapons and abilities as you do so.

DevilDark contains lots of missions to fight through, and as you do so you’ll find new stuff as loot and get even more as rewards. As you get tougher, though, the enemies in the world get stronger as well, so you’ll need skills as well as the best stuff you can find to get through. It also features some big boss fights, and some nice-looking 3-D graphics to add to the immersion.
