The OrderPlug iPad app is a self-service app for restaurants which lets the venue hand out iPad tablets instead of paper menus. The difference in this app is that you don't need a POS to make this functional. There are no monthly fees, no need for an Internet connection, or any change to your existing cash desk, printer, or backend. You just download the app to the iPad on which you will edit your menu and run it in receiver mode, and download the app to iPads you will hand out and run them in client mode.

Unlike other Java to Objective-C solutions, Java-Objective-C Bridge doesn't require any code generation of class stubs. It allows you to use any Objective-C libraries and frameworks from Java without having to write any native code. In addition to being able to use Objective-C objects, it allows you to pass Java objects to the objective-c runtime as delegates, so that you can write an entire Cocoa application in Java. The bridge provides 3 levels of abstraction. At the lowest level, it provides wrappers around the Objective-C runtime functions. At a slightly higher level of abstraction, it provides a procedural API to send messages to the Objective-C runtime. At the highest level of abstraction, it provides a Proxy class that serves as a wrapper around any Objective-C object that allows you to work with it in Java almost the same as if you were in Objective-C.
KeyBoards is a cross-operating system platform that synchronizes short text messages or URLs. It is designed to be used for composing messages on a desktop system with a real, comfortable keyboard, and then sending them to a mobile device for transmission as an SMS. It is ideal for use with non-Latin character sets.
PdfMasher is a tool to convert PDF files containing text into a ready-for-ebook set of HTML files. Most ebook readers support PDF files natively, but it's often a real pain to read those documents because you can't control the font size of the document and have to resort to the zooming feature instead. Another drawback of PDFs on ebook readers is that annotations are not supported. Unlike other tools that convert PDFs to ebooks, PdfMasher does not try to guess the role of each piece of text in the PDF, and instead asks the user about the role of each piece of text, and does so in an efficient manner.
Horology is a date/time calculator that supports all the built-in calendars for iOS, and allows you to perform various types of calculations or conversions of date and time values. You can find the difference between two date/time values, calculate a date/time by inputting a start date/time and add or subtract some arbitrary amount, or convert a value from one unit type to another (e.g., years to seconds).
DiscRotate is a MenuItem that will control the speed of your optical drives. It is written in Cocoa for Mac OS X Leopard and later. It can help you make optical drive operation much quieter. Upon launching, a drive icon will appear in your menu bar at the top. It will list all installed optical drives and let you choose how much throttling applies to each of them. The green bar shows the current setting, and can be clicked to change the throttling speed. 100% means the minimum drive speed. When using heavily scratched CD/DVDs it is recommended to lower the setting to about 85%. Clicking the CD icon in the list will pause throttling for that particular optical drive.
