Tablet & Phone Apps

Collection of our favourite iOS and Android apps.

Viber

Visit website (Free - iOS & Android)

Free calls, text and picture messaging. There’s no need to login in as it runs in the background. Other users must also have Viber installed. Great for international phone calls but expect the connection to drop on occasions.

1Password

Visit website (Free for basic version - iOS & Android)

Keep all your passwords, website logins, credit card and bank account details in one place. Encrypted and synced between all your devices and computers. The app is expensive so it’s aimed at savvy users who spend a lot of time online. To get the full experience the desktop version is $51.99.

Pocket Weather Australia

Visit website (iOS $2.49 / Android $1.99)

Weather direct from the Bureau of Meteorology which is significantly more accurate than online sources (Yahoo etc.). Includes chance of rain with radar, UV index, sunrise & sunset times, humidity and many bells-and-whistles.

WhatsApp

Visit website (Free - iOS & Android)

Free text and picture and video messaging. There’s no need to login in as it runs in the background. Other users must also have WhatsApp installed. I find more people use WhatsApp than Viber.

Shazam

Visit website (Free for basic version - iOS & Android)

Shazam tells you the name and artist of the song that’s playing (and it works surprisingly well even in crowded places like a coffee shop). When you hear a song you like, click the button, Shazam listens and in 3-8 seconds the app tells you the song name and artist.

Dropbox

Visit website (Free - iOS & Android)

Store all your files (videos, pictures, spreadsheets, etc.) safely in the cloud and access them from any device.

Shredder

Visit website (iOS $4.99 / Android $7.99)

Play chess against Shredder. Chosen because of its clean and simple user interface with additional options for hardcore players.

Instant Heart Rate

Visit website ($2.49 - iOS & Android)

Accurately take your heart rate and see the real-time PPG graph. Store your previous recordings. Sometimes difficult to measure if you have tough skin on your fingers.

City Maps 2Go Pro

Visit website (Free - iOS & Android)

No more paper maps when travelling. Save an offline map of the city you’re visiting and use your phone's inbuilt compass and GPS to guide you on the map. It doesn’t use data so there are no data roaming costs.

Star Walk

Visit website (in App purchases)

Amaze your kids (and yourself). Point your iPhone at the sky and the app tells you what stars, consolations and planets you’re looking at on your screen.


iOS Only Apps

ClearTune

Visit website ($4.99)

Simple and accurate instrument tuner.

Day One

Visit website ($6.49)

A digital diary I sync between my iPhone, iPad and computer. Password protected and lets me add photos. In 2014, every day in January I took a new photo of something that happened and wrote a paragraph about my day. It was a wonderful New Year’s resolution.

Scanner Pro

Visit website ($3.79)

Turn your iPhone into a portable scanner, save the image as a PDF, crop and adjust brightness, then email the document from your phone. It’s been a lifesaver.

Documents 5

Visit website (Free)

My favourite document reader on my iPad. Syncs with Dropbox and can view PDFs, Microsoft Office files and images.

AVPlayer

Visit website ($3.79)

A media player much better than the default Videos App. Speed up, slow down, fast-forward and add subtitles to your movies. It plays all file types including AVI, MKV, XVID, MP4 and MOV.
