    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.

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: Free

    One of the benefits of Google's buyout of Nik Software is the freeing up of this previously paid photo-editing app.

    The latest version brings the app to Android, provides Google+ functionality, and the new free price tag.

    This has meant that many of the latest reviews on the Apple App Store are people complaining about the price drop and demanding refunds.
