Skimbox update (Free)

What’s it about? Reduce the time you spend reading through emails using Skimbox, an app that separates important emails from unimportant ones.

What’s cool? Skimbox works to help you spend less time sorting through emails and more time working. The app automatically sorts your inbox, tossing emails that aren’t important into a “skimbox” and emails that are into your “mainbox,” and learns to do a better job classifying your emails by paying attention to your actions. You can also quickly reclassify your emails or archive them with a swipe. Skimbox is compatible with Gmail and Microsoft Exchange, and its latest update adds integration with your Apple Contacts to give you quicker access to email addresses when you’re sending messages.

Who’s it for? If you spend a lot of time managing your email inbox, check out Skimbox.

Stylitics update (Free)

What’s it about? Stylitics is a social fashion app designed to let you share your outfit choices with other users.

What’s cool? Fashion is best enjoyed socially, which is why Stylitics gives users the ability to plan and share your outfits with your friends wherever you are. You can chat with others about style in private channels through Stylitics, browse through a stream of other people’s fashion and outfit choices for ideas (or just to see what they’re into), and create a style calendar that lets you see when you last wore a particular outfit. Stylitics even helps you track how much you spend on clothes by showing your “cost of closet.” A newly applied update to Stylitics adds some performance enhancements, like faster browsing and loading and better usability.

Who’s it for? Fashionistas and fans of checking out the style of others will want to snag Stylitics.

What’s it like? Fashion Freax and Style Studio: Fashion Designer are two more great apps for sharing fashion and style.

Fright Heights (Free)

What’s it about? Puzzler Fright Heights tasks players with scaring the occupants of a hotel out of their rooms to earn points, using Tetris-style gameplay.

What’s cool? Fright Heights is a puzzler set in a hotel, in which your job is to help a bunch of ghosts and monsters overtake a hotel by scaring out the people staying there. As you play the game, you’ll get ghosts and patrons that you need to place in the various rooms of the hotel. The idea is to use different monsters to surround the patrons, scoring points by maximizing how much you can scare each one. Fright Heights includes 50 different hotel levels to play through, and you can also share your progress with your friends on Facebook.
