  • Five-O police reporting

    Inspired by civil unrest in the US, three teenagers have created Five-O, an app designed to empower citizens to "record and store data from every encounter with law enforcement," according to the app's website. In addition to rating police services in different areas, a "Know your rights" section allows you to submit both positive and negative encounters with law enforcement. 

    As of the time of writing, the app has been accepted by Google Play, but is still undergoing Apple's vetting process before entering the App Store. 

    Price: $Free

  • Anchor Pointer

    Anchor Pointer is a beautifully designed app which eradicates everything unnecessary about using maps to find your way. Users store GPS coordinates and use a simple compass to reach their destination, which switches to night mode when you need extra light. GPS locations can be saved on a location list and assigned icons for quick access.

    Price: £1.99 ($3.30)

  • I prefer IFTTT / Pushbullet


    Notifyr is a handy application which links up your Mac and iOS devices to show handset notifications on your computer. From WhatsApp to Facebook, any notifications you have set up on your mobile device can emerge on your Mac's screen, so you have no need to keep checking your iPhone.

    Before purchasing, however, make sure you check out the app's compatibility list and see if your devices are okay to use. "

    I prefer IFTTT / Pushbullet - a much more powerful combination IMO, and free.
