    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    Google Maps is what I use most of the time on my iPhone 5, but the latest updated Scout app from TeleNav is getting the call more often. When you launch the app, you get a slick interface to immediately help you get to where you want with home and work on the bottom, prominent POIs, and a quick search box.

    A new feature with iOS is their Share ETA button. After tapping it you can share your route and others can follow you in real time on their computer. Scout is a compelling navigation option that has earned a spot on my home screen.

    Zinio

    Platform: WP8

    Price: Free app, magazine subscriptions vary

    I have used Zinio on other devices before to read magazines on the go. The new WP8 app, for Nokia Lumia devices, is an excellent application with a current $50 free value for new users. I am now reading several magazines on my Lumia 920.
