    Fitocracy has now rolled out a Android version of its app, alongside its existing iOS app. The idea behind Fitocracy is to earn points with every workout, so that users can level up and duel with other participants. Or for the achievement hunter, there are a number of quests they can embark on, and badges to be earned for certain feats.

    Another YouTube player for iOS, PlayTube's main feature is the ability to cache videos so that they can be watched later. If you're ever in a demo and the Wi-Fi network becomes congested, this could save you. Or it could be used to continue watching that video your colleague passed to you while on the train and out of reception.

    PresentEasy allows users to see their slideshows on their phone, complete with slide notes, while maintaining control of their presentation. Navigating between slides is achieved by simply swiping left or right, and users can skip straight to the first or last slide if need be.
