    Horizon Calendar

    Platform: iOS

    Price: AU$1.99

    Guess what? We've got a new iOS app, and it's the most beautiful calendar app ever!

    We've all heard that one before, but this app raises one good question: Why hasn't anyone thought of merging a calendaring and weather app properly?

    The review commenters love it — which is one of their two possible emotions, the other being disgust — and this app looks like a winner.

    The only way that this could be more impressive was if it also arrived bearing an Android widget, but given that this is an iOS exclusive, we're not holding our breath.

    Carbon for Twitter

    Platform: Android

    Price: Free

    There's one area where iOS is able to hold it all over Android: Decent Twitter clients. Tweetbot is the standout app in that regard, but hopefully Carbon for Twitter is the first step toward Android catching up.

    The app brings the bling and is definitely great looking, but it doesn't have a full grip on functionality, and sometimes actions are needlessly hidden away in a sidebar.

    This isn't the greatest Twitter app ever, but it's one to look out for as updates are released.

    Foursquare for Business

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: Free

    Foursquare admins rejoice! Here's a revolutionary concept, administrating your page on a mobile-based application from your mobile.

    This app offers admins the ability to view location check-in and analytics on recent and loyal customers, and post Foursquare updates on other social networks.
