    Armadale Shopping City Shopper Guide

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    If you needed proof that this app thing wasn't a total fad, then feast your eyes on this.

    Lend Lease has produced a string of apps for its shopping centres, and if a town the size of Armadale, Western Australia, can have an app for its shopping centre, then there's probably something in this app business.

    The app itself provides what you would expect: maps, shop listings, and a shopping list.

    The idea of this app is solid: finding a bulk-billing doctor near you. Unfortunately, despite a proclamation that its database is getting bigger, users continue to complain that its coverage isn't adequate.

    Hopefully this is remedied soon, and the app can fill some of its potential.

    Australian Open

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: Free

    As the tennis action heats up and moves into finals week, bandwagon jumpers should know that now is the time to get excited about sports that you have a passing interest in once a year.

    This app offers scores, schedules, player bios, radio streaming, video coverage, and the opportunity to buy merchandise.

    A word of advice to all bandwagoners: Tomic has been bundled out by the Swiss Maestro, Roger Federer, so you'll need to put your nationalism aside for this year.
