    Users who purchased an Android handset from Telstra will have seen this application and its widgets pre-installed on their device.

    The application provides access to BigPond News, Sport, Weather, and can also track your mobile data usage.

    We find this app useful for its data usage and weather widgets.

    runtastic PushUps Pro

    Platform: Android

    Price: AU$0.99

    The goal of this app is to get their users fit enough to be able to do 100 push-ups in a row. It does this through a sports science training plan, voice coach, and a push-up counter that uses either a proximity sensor or by touching the screen with your nose.

    It also contains other tools to keep track of your push-up workout.
