    Gmail

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    Google updated its Gmail for iOS last week, and as an Android user, I hate it. The reason for this is simple: pure jealousy.

    The search company is now in the awkward position of having its Gmail app looking better on Apple devices than on Android.

    If you try this app and have been using another mail client, then it is highly recommended to turn off the notifications of the old app, unless you like to be alerted to new emails multiple times, and with multiple tones.

    Fantastical

    Platform: iOS

    Price: $1.99

    This application claims that adding events to a calendar is "fun". Since the target audience for this iOS app is presumably the same sort of person that enjoys Grumpy Cat, I'm not sure that "fun" is the right word.

    The app syncs with iCloud, Google Calendar, Exchange, and any other service that the iOS Calendar app supports.

    Users with Siri support are also able to use dictation to enter events.

    ACCC Shopper

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: Free

    With Christmas fast approaching, this timely app informs users about their warranty, refund, and lay-by rights.

    The app provides functionality to store photos of receipts and set reminders for lay-bys, warranties, or gift vouchers.
