    Price: Free
    Platform: iOS, Android

    Remember Read It Later, the app designed to save online stories for later offline reading? It's had an overhaul, and has been rebranded to boot. Now known as Pocket, the app has lost its $2.99 price tag, and is a lot nicer to use. The interface has been simplified and redesigned. It's faster, and it includes features such as an automatic content filter that separates videos, articles and images, and a new organisation strategy that allows you to Favourite, Tag, Archive, Delete and Bulk Edit your articles.

    My VMware

    Price: Free
    Platform: iOS (iPhone and iPad), Android

    Is keeping track of VMware use across your organisation confusing you? This app might help. With it, you can see your VMware profile information, entitlement accounts, product licences, user permissions, support contracts and order information. You can view the information on and offline, and if the folder-based structure isn't working for you, the app lets you easily search by user or partial licence key fragment.

    For those of you who are so busy you even text while you're walking somewhere, Text N Walk for Windows Phone lets you text and see where you're going, providing a view of what's in front of you on the phone's screen.
