Software marketed for interacting with other software?

Need examples of software marketed for its interaction with other software, with the naming convention of "NAME for NAME." Not looking for OS-level stuff, though, like "NAME for Windows."

What I'm not looking for is OS-level naming conventions, like "Photoshop for Windows."

I'm looking for software package to software package interaction, like "NAME for Photoshop."

It helps to search "for NAME" in Google, with quotation marks.

"Timekeeper for Sage MAS90" comes immediately to mind as I worked for a company that mainly did add-ons for a MAS90. We had 8 modules with that naming convention. Granted, this is pretty niche software but it does fit with what you're looking for.

Off-topic, but I learned the quotation-mark-exact-phrase trick from Google's cheatsheet.

All of the Office Recovery tools are marketed this way (Recovery for Word, Recovery for Lotus Notes, etc).

I assume you're confining this to applications that interact because if you allow for addons you'd get thousands just for Excel.

I remember Act! for Notes, a big CRM add on for Lotus Notes.
