DrupalCon Sydney 2013 Guide
From Wednesday to Saturday this week, DrupalCon will be on in Sydney.
This app is unofficial, but we still like the idea of it. Fumbling through a schedule should be easier via an app than the crumpled piece of paper or reverse side of a lanyard filler that are used nowadays.
The app contains the usual features you'd expect: Schedule, session planner, Twitter feed, and floor plans.

RACQ Mobile Service
Forget this app's trip planning and other navigation-related features; the reason you want it is that you can request roadside assistance without needing to call a switchboard. Using the phone's GPS, the app will tell RACQ dispatch your location.
This all sounds wonderful, but look at that picture above. Bonus points for keeping it real, but I do hope that 40 minutes isn't typical the typical wait time offered by the RACQ.
Platform: Samsung Android
This app is incredibly useful, but only if you have a Samsung Android device. By default, the TouchWiz theme on Android sorts apps in the "All Applications" grid by installation date. After a while, this means that any alphabetisation of the grid is sorely lacking, and iOS-like "Where'd that app go, wait, I'll just search for it" userflow kicks in.
All this app does is re-sort the applications grid, and in doing so restores order from chaos, and that is what makes it brilliant.
There is also a paid version for AU$0.99 to remove the standard annoying ads found in many Android apps.
