Minutes

Platform: iOS (iPad)

Price: AU$5.49

Meeting minutes are a pain that this app aims to ease. As you take minutes, you can take down actions and store them for follow-up.

It also includes a timer to help you stay on track; it enables the easy distribution of notes; it keeps everything organised; and it has integration with calendars and your iDevice contacts.

TrackMySpend

Platform: iOS (iPhone and iPad)

Price: Free

The Australian Government just doesn't trust us to keep track of our own finances, so its giving us an app to help. This app not only helps record personal expenses, it also works out work-related expenses, so that you never have to dread tax time again. In case something happens, the information is automatically backed up for free.

Gliph

Platform: iOS (iPhone), Android

Price: Free

If you worry about security, Gliph might be a great app for you. You create an account by claiming a Gliph, and then you can send encrypted text messages and cloak your email when using it on sites that you don't trust, although this feature only works under certain conditions on Android. You can even delete messages that you didn't mean to send to other users, not only on your device, but on theirs, too.

Pick.ee

Platform: iOS (iPhone)

Price: Free

If you want to chat to people around you, but also want to be private or take control with an alter ego, Pick.ee might be for you. It lets you choose whether you want to be visible or invisible, and decide what fields you want to fill out about yourself and embellish to your heart's content. If you're looking for a particular type of person, you can put filters on to only show that kind of person.
