    Telco Navigator

    Platform: iPad

    Price: Free

    Attention telco fiends bearing iPads, here is an app that aims to consolidate the legislative and regulatory documents that telco workers (and curious wonks) need.

    Telco Navigator contains 300 documents, which are available offline as well.

    Podcasts

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    Apple has updated its much-maligned Podcasts app. The update adds more customisable features, and claims to improve the speed and stability of the app.

    ... Unlike on Android, where the podcast app de jure Google Listen has been retired to a form of stasis, and will stop working in a reasonable way when Google Reader is shuttered.

    Android users that want to use a Google-supported app for podasts should use Currents.

    Google Keep

    Platform: Android

    Price: Free

    And so Google's Evernote competitor has arrived — at least that's what the internet hype machine says.

    It's not as full-featured as Evernote, and it doesn't appear to be intended for the heavy Evernote user.

    If you are the sort of person that has been making notes in your phone's "Memo" application, and would like to have it stored in Google Drive, then this app could fit the bill. That experience is definitely better than emailing yourself a set of notes because you haven't created an Evernote account. (Stop looking at me like that!)
