    TripView

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: AU$2.99 (iOS); AU$3.29 (Android)

    Remember when the NSW government fell in love with the idea of blocking third-party transport apps? Oh, how times have changed.

    Today, the NSW government announced that it has opened its real-time bus information to third-party developers.

    The first three apps to have this information are TripView, TripGo (iOS/Android), and Arrivo Sydney (Android).

    Flickr

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    This update to Flickr for iOS is more of a redesign than a point update. It also obeys the 2012 filtering law of photo apps that states that if an app can take or handle photos, then it must follow that the app also have filtering options.

    Filter snark aside, this app is far better than the old app that users wrestled with for years.
