Flipboard

Magazine-style article reader Flipboard has finally landed on Android. The company has also announced that users can connect their Google+ account to Flipboard, and view the activity in their circles in magazine format. The same thing has been enabled for YouTube, so that video browsing can be like reading a magazine.

WinZip

Price: Free
Platform: iOS (iPhone and iPad), Android

Most Android phones now come with software packaged (via the phone manufacturer) that allows you to unzip files. It can be a little clunky, though, or limited to certain file types. Cue WinZip for Android, something that we have to admit we never even imagined. It allows you to open and view zip files containing images, text, documents, spreadsheets, PowerPoints and PDFs, as well as copy and paste them into other applications, such as email. It's easy to use, so if you're unhappy with your phone's native zip handling, then give it a shot.
