    Foxtel Go for iPhone

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free (needs Foxtel subscription)

    Foxtel Go already exists for the iPad, but now iPhone users will be able join the viewing action as well.

    Even though the app itself is free, the catch is that you need to have a Foxtel subscription, and not all channels are available for viewing.

    Still, it could be useful for catching up on the cricket at your desk over the coming months.

    Split Browser

    Platform: Android

    Price: $4.00

    One of the better features available in Samsung Note and Galaxy phone/phablets is the ability to have two applications in the foreground simultaneously via a split screen.

    This app cannot replicate the entire TouchWiz experience, but it can split your browser panes — a decent start.

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    This app weighs in at a hefty 56MB, and for that size, all you get is a news feed, aircraft profiles, a handful of wallpapers to download, and calendar entries for various Air Force displays.

    The pictures are nice in the aircraft profiles, but I would hate to update it accidentally while using a carrier data network.
