    Dolphin Browser Beta

    Platform: Android

    Price: Free

    Dolphin has said that its beta is the "highest-performing HTML5 browser available today", and it is fast. It has gesture-based navigation, where drawing a rough "G" on the screen, for example, will take you to Google. It also has voice search, as well as tabbed browsing, sidebars and add-ons. It supports Web Worker, Web Socket, Web Audio and real-time video display via the camera.

    Price: AU$2.99

    Now on iPad, this app is a basic text editor, like Notepad. As soon as you open the app, you have a new blank page for your thoughts, which exports to almost anything, including Dropbox, Evernote, email, messages, clipboard, Markdown and Tweetbot. It syncs smoothly via Cloud between iPad and iPhone, so you can have all of your stuff across both devices, wherever you go.
