    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    Do you love paying booking fees while on the move? With this app from Ticketek, you are only a few taps away from paying more than $5 for digital tickets. What a bargain!

    People that love the latest attempt to make QR codes useful — sorry, I mean Passbook users — will love the Passbook integration.

    But if the above screenshot is representative of the gigs that Passbook users will add, we'll pass on it.

    Eye In Sky

    Platform: Android

    Price: Free; AU$1.83 (ad-free version)

    Over the break, the Android half of the App Wrap sentience discovered this little weather app for Android.

    Not only does it look good, but having the current temperature always available at the top of the screen is a handy addition, particularly in the humid summer heat that we are experiencing.

    A key to remove the app's ads is also available, but you need to have the free version installed first.

    Claims Buddy

    Platform: iOS, Android

    Price: Free

    Last year we found a timely AAMI claim app, and it looks like another insurer is getting in on the app craze in the form of Bingle.

    But it only looks that way, Bingle and AAMI share the same Suncorp owner, and the apps look like they have the same functionality.

    We prefer the AAMI version, but if garish green is your thing, then this app delivers!
