    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.

    NAB has now developed an app for Windows Phone, adding to its Android and iPhone apps. It features an ATM locator, which uses Microsoft's Bing Maps, a live Twitter feed for NAB tweets and standard payment-transaction capabilities. The bank took advantage of Windows Phone's Live Tiles feature by allowing the currency-conversion part of the new app to be turned into a Live Tile.
