Abhishek, this first thing I would get for your Macbook Air is Homebrew:

http://brew.sh

Homebrew will permit you to install many, many useful software packages from:

http://braumeister.org

You probably have Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, so other software depends on your needs. Same with iPhone apps. Good luck!

AppStore has user rated apps in each category. It's a good place to start your research. You'll find the AppStore in Macintosh > Applications if it isn't already on the Dock.
