Meet a bunch of new people this weekend? Keep all your contacts straight, including those from social networks, with Savi People. The app aggregates everyone you know from Facebook, your contacts list, LinkedIn and more, and makes it easy to contact them all. We’ve also got some quality games on offer: first, the iPad-specific realMyst, an improved version of the PC classic adventure title; and Zynga Slots, a free-to-play slot machine with social add-ons and mini-games built in.

Savi People (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Keep all your contacts straight, from all the services you use, with the help of Savi People. Bringing in your contacts from Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social networks, Savi mixes them with the contact list in your iOS device, making it easy to find and get in touch with anyone, or even with groups of people. Savi People also gives you lots of ways to connect with those contacts, including using the various social networks on which you find them by sending things like direct messages or posting on timelines.

Savi People’s biggest benefits are involving organization. It’s easy to create profiles for your contacts and to copy and paste them in other places to make sure you have all the information about a given person on-hand. You can also do things like initiate FaceTime calls or send group messages, create sub-groups for your contacts for greater organization, and set some people as favorites so that you can access and contact them quickly.

realMyst (iPad) $6.99

The classic PC adventure game Myst has been available on Apple’s iOS devices for some time, but realMyst is the definitive version of the game, designed with the iPad 2 and new iPad in mind. The game has improved graphics in real-time 3-D, allowing players to adventure through the island of Myst in their own way, choosing their own paths.

RealMyst includes both the entire original game and the expansion Rime Age. Its graphics have been improved with the power of the iPad 2, and also packs Retina support. It has new save systems and an auto-save system to make sure you never lose your progress, and also includes a hint guide to help you stay on track within the game.

Zynga Slots (iPhone, iPad) Free

The latest iOS offering from FarmVille maker Zynga is Zynga Slots, a casino-themed app with all the gambling game capabilities you’d expect. The free app is rather simple – it’s a standard slot machine, but it packs the ability to play as many as 40 lines on a single pull of the one-armed bandit’s lever. It also include some social integration that nets you free coins to play with when you invite your friends to check it out.

As you play in Zynga Slots, you’ll be able to earn upgrades for your slot machines to make them better based on how well you do. You can also enter “Fever Mode” as you play to nail higher payouts throughout. You can grab shared jackpots with your friends, and play mini-games for bonuses as well.
