    "With all the evil doers out there, and since they haven't cloned me yet, I need this App to get away for a few minutes of sanity relief. When stuff does happen, it gives me excellent remote access to the machines I'm in charge of, and I can take corrective action immediately. My sanity thanks you. "

    "Pretty good text editor, but nothing to write home about. It does have a simple format and does seem to be fully capable of doing everything for editing, but there is a flaw if it makes itself the default text editor. Nothing really to worry about if this happens, just uninstall. Not really my cup of tea anyway."

    "1password is very useful to me being a business owner when you consider the fact that I have to use a lot of different passwords throughout the day. The interface is very simple to use and and I found the convenient factor to be very high in terms of it remembering and auto filling in all of my passwords for all of the different accounts that I use throughout the day.

    "If you are a freelance software engineer looking to pick up some temp projects, or if you are working on a project and could use some quick help you might want to check out Freelancer App. It's not focused of any particular field of work, so your mileage may vary. Personally I wouldn't keep it on my phone all of the time, but it has its uses."

    "Wifi Analyzer is a good app for setting up a router and home/work network, but I'm not sure it's really all that useful for a software engineer. I would think there are many work based apps that would be much more useful for them. This app is great and functions well, though."
