Interesting. Wonder what other apps they will come up with.

First 10 apps listed below:

Plan Flight (for travel and transportation companies) helps companies track and trim their fuel expenses by letting pilots view flight schedules, flight plans, and crew manifests in advance, report issues in-flight to ground crews, and make more informed decisions about discretionary fuel.
Passenger+ (for travel and transportation companies) lets flight crews offer more services in-flight like special offers, re-booking, and baggage information.
Advise & Grow (for banking and financial companies) lets bankers access client profiles and analyses to make more personalized recommendations for small businesses and complete secure transactions.
Trusted Advice (for banking and financial companies) allows advisors to access and manage client portfolios on the road, modeling recommendations and do secure transactions.
Retention (for insurance companies) helps agents manage customer contacts with analysis, alerts, and recommendations. It also lets them complete transactions using e-signatures.
Case Advice (for government) supports caseworkers as they visit families and people. It also helps them identify at-risk situations using big data analysis.
Incident Aware (for government) gives law enforcement officers real-time access to maps and video-feeds of incident locations on their iPhones. It also shows them information about victim status, escalation risk, and crime history ability to call for back-up, too.
Sales Assist (for retail) lets salespeople see customer profiles on the retail floor so they can make recommendations. It also lets them check inventory, locate items in-store, and ship out-of-store items.
Pick & Pack (for retail) helps retailers track items in the story and connects with inventory order systems.
Expert Tech (for telecommunications companies) taps into FaceTime for all sorts of needs, whether it's employees asking an question to an expert or customers talking to a support tech.

For me Google Apps for work is much better specially with Inbox coming in the new year.
