Five-O police reporting

Inspired by civil unrest in the US, three teenagers have created Five-O, an app designed to empower citizens to "record and store data from every encounter with law enforcement," according to the app's website. In addition to rating police services in different areas, a "Know your rights" section allows you to submit both positive and negative encounters with law enforcement. 

As of the time of writing, the app has been accepted by Google Play, but is still undergoing Apple's vetting process before entering the App Store.

Anchor Pointer

Anchor Pointer is a beautifully designed app which eradicates everything unnecessary about using maps to find your way. Users store GPS coordinates and use a simple compass to reach their destination, which switches to night mode when you need extra light. GPS locations can be saved on a location list and assigned icons for quick access.

Price: £1.99 ($3.30)

PDF Expert 5

Whether you run a business or are an employee, sometimes documents sent in a .PDF format need to be quickly edited on the go. If I need to sign off on a document or make notes, I usually use PDF Expert 5, which is a responsive app that allows you to mark up documents in a variety of fonts and formats, sign documents and fill out forms on your mobile device without fuss.

Price: $9.99

Notifyr

Notifyr is a handy application which links up your Mac and iOS devices to show handset notifications on your computer. From WhatsApp to Facebook, any notifications you have set up on your mobile device can emerge on your Mac's screen, so you have no need to keep checking your iPhone. 

Before purchasing, however, make sure you check out the app's compatibility list and see if your devices are okay to use. 

Price: $4.99

Hyperlapse

Instagram launched a new application this month for iOS devices called Hyperlapse. The app is used to create time lapse videos via a mobile device's camera. A sequence of frames are taken at set intervals, recording changes happening slowly over time -- but this in turn makes the video appear to move more quickly when played at a normal speed. Normally, time lapse videos have to be taken while the kit is still, but Instagram says its built-in stabilization technology allows you to "create moving, handheld time lapses that result in a cinematic look, quality and feel -- a feat that has previously only been possible with expensive equipment."

Price: $Free

Indiegogo

Kickstarter got in on the act, and so rival Indiegogo follows. Both websites host crowdfunding campaigns for projects worldwide, acting as an alternative to angel investment or bank loans to get innovative projects or startups off the ground. Instead, sponsors -- individuals like you and me -- choose to support a project by donating, usually in return for perks or special rates when a product is developed. Now, to make investing easier, Indiegogo has finally joined the mobile realm.  

Price: $Free
