    How do you feel about having a talking fish in your ear? If a Babel fish isn't your thing, then maybe this app will suffice.

    The app arrives armed with the ability to translate over 50 written languages, speak or listen to 20 languages, and auto-detect languages.

    Police Child ID

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: Free

    This is an app that we hope you never have to use. Based on an app from the FBI, the Australian Federal Police (AFP) has released an app to help parents with missing children.

    The app allows parents to store photos and information about their child on their mobile, so it can be immediately provided to authorities if the child goes missing.

    The application also includes safety advice and checklists for parents on keeping children safe, information about what to do in the hours immediately after a child goes missing, and quick and efficient access to emergency contact phone numbers.

    Abbott Nutrition Product Guide

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    Does your personal health need help? Then put a great big new tax on carbs. This is the app to control your carbs, not your carbon. Wipe obesity off the map today with this app.

    The app answers the questions you think need to be answered (on carbs, not union officials). As always, any recommendations found in this app should be treated as general guidelines, not core promises.

    This is the Abbott Nutrition Product Guide that I know.
