Australia Android

Price: Free
Platform: Android

Finding apps that are just for Australians can be difficult, since there's no filter feature built into the Android Market, but this app attempts to make this process simpler, providing an alternate marketplace for Australian apps, and then linking back to Google's Android Market.

SpeedCam Detector

Price: $1.53
Platform: Android

When rushing to a meeting, the last thing anyone wants to worry about is whether they just sped past a speed camera. SpeedCam Detector works by tracking the user's location via GPS, and, when approaching a fixed speed camera, sounds an alert and displays their current speed and the speed at which the camera will trigger. It can sit in the background, and also doesn't require an internet connection if the in-built map overlay is not required.
