    AWS Console for Android

    Platform: Android

    Price: Free

    Last week, Amazon announced an update to its mobile management services for AWS users — and while iOS users will have to be happy with an updated mobile site, Android users have scored themselves an app. iOS users may see the move as "Inconceivable!", but Amazon does know a thing or two about Android because of its Kindle products.

    The app allows for viewing of EC2 instances and Cloudwatch alarms, EC2 metrics, automated actions that are set up for each alarm, AWS service health status, multiple accounts, and multiple region support.

    Sydney Festival 2013

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    It's January, and the Sydney Festival has returned for another year. This time, iOS freaks get to shed the Amazon anger as normal service resumes with an iOS exclusive app.

    Contents of this app include the standard stuff you've seen in apps of this kind before: a listing of all events and artists, daily deals, a map panel, and event information.

    The Monash University Low FODMAP Diet

    Platform: iOS

    Price: AU$10.49

    If you thought that this was an app that would help you lose all the extra weight you gained over the break, then this isn't the app for you.

    The Low FODMAP Diet is designed for people to manage the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. The university says that the key is to reduce a group of carbohydrates called FODMAPs — hence the name of the app.

    Inside this app is a list of low FODMAP foods, 79 recipes, and a low FODMAP challenge.
