    NSW Rego

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    If being able to update your car's registration via a website is so last year for you, then fear not. This year, you can update your rego via an iOS app.

    Beyond registration renewal, the app offers a free registration check for any NSW vehicle, and the ability to set a registration-renewal reminder and allow you to find the nearest safety check station.

    Kogan Mobile

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: Free

    Users who have already jumped onto Kogan Mobile's prepaid plans will want this app to manage their account.

    The app allows for balance checking, recharging, and a facility to set up auto-recharging.

    No doubt it is a better experience than going into 7-Eleven late on the weekend when you run out of credit.

    Haymarket — Walking Tour

    Platform: Android

    Price: Free

    What is there to say about an app that lives on Android and bills itself as "Australia's first ever iPhone application featuring the cultural and historical walking tours in Sydney's ChinaTown", and "What makes it interesting is that tourist[s] can download it on their very own smartphones."

    Interesting, indeed. Someone should do a weekly gallery featuring new apps in a sometimes snarky tone; that would be great!
