JB Hi-Fi Now
JB Hi-Fi has finally outed the mobile apps for Now, its music-streaming service. The apps support the iOS and Android platforms, with more platform support coming later. These new apps support offline synchronisation, meaning that you can throw a few albums onto your mobile device and take it with you on a flight, for example. The app's launch has also brought the one-month free trial back to Now.

Designing and experimenting with circuits? Maybe you should try out this app, which you use like a computer-aided design (CAD) program, adding and connecting elements and setting their properties to see how it operates. There are 30 elements you can use for the circuits, from resistors to metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs).

Pizza Hut is making sure that Windows Phone 7 users don't go hungry, releasing an app for ordering cheesy treats on the Microsoft platform. You can even save your favourites for easy ordering next time. BlackBerry users, unfortunately, are still going hungry.
The Android Evernote app has received an extensive upgrade — one that brings with it a completely redesigned look and UI, making it eminently more usable. The home page now has one-tap icons for creating new notes, snapshots, recordings and attachments, and everything is really simple to navigate and find. It's the app it should have been all along.
There's no news on a similar update for iOS.
Platform: iOS (iPhone and iPad)
This app provides access to movies and television shows for Quickflix's WatchNow customers to stream whenever they want.
