Take control of your Xbox from your mobile device with SmartGlass.
SmartGlass claims to allow easy navigation of the Xbox — though we saw at least one CNET editor struggle with its definition of which way is the correct way to swipe to move content left and right.
The ability to type without having to traverse the console's on-screen keyboard is a definite bonus.
To work properly, the Xbox and mobile device should be on the same subnet.

My next car
This app out of NSW Fair Trading provides a method to keep track of used cars that you may be interesting in buying.
It includes a loan calculator, debt check to see whether the car was stolen or has money owning on it, an inspection checklist, and other advice.
From the creators of reCAPTCHA, this language-learning website has made its way to iOS. Not only does the website and app offer free language learning, it also performs crowd-sourced text translation at the same time.

AAMI Claim Assist
Here's something that a member of the ZDNet team wished they had last week: an app to help out with insurance claims.
The app guides users through the company's claims process, and includes GPS lookup for time and location, support for a variety of accident types, and auto-saving of data entered.
Amazon Cloud Drive Photos
If you've ever thought of taking the power of Amazon's web services and removing all of the useful stuff so that it is no better than any other photo-sharing app, then fear not: Amazon's already done that.
This app gives users 5GB to store photos on Amazon from Android devices.

We've always wanted Gorilla Talk reminders, and this app offers that, as well as the ability to check out Melbourne Zoo.
Maps, audio talks, and different ways around the zoo — it's better than that sweaty crumpled paper map we used to carry around.
