    OpenVPN Connect

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: Free

    If you are looking for the official OpenVPN app, then look no further.

    The app allows the importation of .ovpn profiles from SD card, iTunes, OpenVPN Access Server, Private Tunnel, or a browser link. Owners of the Nexus 7 will be able to use hardware-backed keystores, while everyone can use its IPv6 support and improved power management.

    iPhone Keyboard Emulator

    Platform: Android

    Price: Free

    Maybe a couple of years ago it was the case that iOS had a better keyboard implementation than other mobile platforms, but not now.

    Wanting to use an iPhone keyboard on Android would be akin to wanting to use S-Voice on iPhone.

    We don't understand why you'd want to replace the much better native keyboard with this app. But if you want to pretend you have a Samsung iPhone, this app could help.

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: Free

    This app was recently updated to offer functionality closer to the bank's regular online banking site. There are still a number of gaps remaining, but it is one step closer to parity.
