    OzTV

    Platform: iOS

    Price: $1.99

    I know what you are thinking: "Why should I pay AU$1.99 for a TV guide?"

    But think about all those copies of TV Week that were thrown out in your youth. That was hardly a good use of money, and besides, this app looks good, and will not bother you with a Logies voting form.

    And that can only be a good thing.

    Hidden City

    Platform: Android

    Price: Free

    Currently covering only Sydney, Hidden City claims to allow the user to "explore cities in a new and exciting way", and offers to take the user on a "mysterious and fun adventure that explores the secrets and wonders within your city".

    Presumably, the wonders and secrets that the app refers to must be the workings of the CityRail timetable.

    As one of the few apps to have access to CityRail's real-time data, perhaps it can tell us how that mysterious mechanism works.

    AU Footy 2013

    Platform: Windows Phone

    Price: AU$1.99

    Here is a Windows Phone app that looks good, deals with an Australian issue, and is worth the AU$2.

    We tend to bag Windows Phone apps in the App Wrap, but here is a useful app that wouldn't be out of place on any other mobile platform.

    Sure, it's a sports app, but at least it's not a sports betting app.
