A few Apps I’ve yet to try out

VIBER
IPHONE, FREE

An iPhone app that lets you make free phone calls to other iPhone users who have Viber installed. "A good alternative to Skype that seems to integrate better with the way people use their phones. It utilises your contacts list to tell you who else is using it and also receives calls when the app isn’t active." AF

AIR SHARING
IPAD/IPHONE/IPOD TOUCH, $3.99

Turns your iPhone into a wireless, external hard drive that you can connect to your email, website or home computer. If you’re greedy for even more space, you can pay $8.99 for the Pro version.

JOTNOT
IPAD/IPHONE/IPOD TOUCH, $0.99

A document scanner that is far superior to taking a photo. It allows you to process images in batches to create a black-and-white PDF and send back-up scans to your computer from iTunes. It can be used for anything from keeping a copy of a magazine recipe to making a note of homework

SOUNDHOUND
ANDROID/IPAD/IPHONE/IPOD TOUCH/NOKIA, FREE

Identify songs in as little as four seconds or simply say or type in the name of an artist to get instant access to their catalogue. Compared to Shazam, SoundHound really goes that extra mile in finding lyrics and YouTube videos of songs. Users can pay $6.99 for the advertisement-free version.

FIND MY IPHONE
IPAD/IPHONE/IPOD TOUCH, FREE

Left your phone at the pub? Write it a "please return to owner" message remotely and it will pop up on the display screen. Know it’s in the house somewhere but just can’t find it? Access the online map from your home computer to see exactly where it is, then command it to play a sound. Know it’s been stolen? Set PINs and wipe the phone remotely. Dropped it in the toilet? Sorry, can’t help you there.

HEYTELL
IPAD/IPHONE/IPOD TOUCH, FREE

A walkie talkie for adults. Just press the "speak" button and send an instant voice message to any contacts who also have the app. For $2.49, you can buy a voice changer that makes you sound like a creepy robot, or a pitch-perfect singer.
