    Find A Lawyer

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: Free

    You're in the back of the police station, you've got one phone call, but no lawyer. What do you do?

    The answer is to negotiate 5 minutes of app use, using this app, obviously, and call the nearest and best lawyer you can find.

    Previously on iOS, the St John Ambulance app for first aid has made its way onto Android.

    Here Maps

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    Stuck on iOS 6 and getting led astray by Apple Maps? Then maybe Nokia can help.

    Here Maps covers nearly 200 countries, and has the ability to save map areas when you don't have data coverage.

    Is it a winner? Looking at the ratings on the App Store, it would appear not.
