Google Drive

Price: Free
Platform: Android

With the roll-out of Google Drive, naturally, there's an Android app. It allows you to access all the files stored on your Google Drive and lets you upload files from your Android device, as well. You can also create and edit Google documents, upload and convert files to Google Docs, make files available offline and share files with your contacts.

LinkedIn

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

LinkedIn has now released an app for the iPad. LinkedIn says it took into consideration the way in which professionals use their iPad. Called-for features include calendar sync, to let you know everything about the people you're meeting during your business day, news feeds, a module to tell you about the people viewing your profile and a feature to help you congratulate colleagues who have changed jobs.

Power Tune-Up

Price: Free
Platform: Android

Bitdefender Power Tune-Up helps you save the battery life and manage performance on your Android. You can view and stop the processes that are hurting your CPU and RAM, and see how much talk or standby time you have left. The app also helps you to clear up unnecessary files from your phone's internal storage and memory cards. If you're worried about 3G data roaming, you can also keep track of how much data you're using, and setting up thresholds to receive notifications.

Klout

Price: Free
Platform: iOS (iPhone)

Those who like to see how important they are can now look at their Klout score at any time on their iPhone via the official app. You can use the app to look at your Klout score (Klout measures influence based on your interaction on social networks; for example, how many people like your Facebook posts), or to discover new people on social media. You get to see your score all the time, since you can see it from the home screen, even if you're not using the app. If you still miss when your score goes up and down, you'll get notifications. Alternatively, you can choose to forgo all of that by turning off these features.

You can aggregate deals purchases not only from Spreets, but also from other deals sites.

Zoomzin

Price: Free
Platform: Android

If you're the kind of person who loses their stuff all the time, then maybe Zoomzin is for you. It's an app that sets up a list of the things you lose the most, and the places where you lose them. The app records "loss patterns", and provides suggestions of where your stuff most likely is. It can also call out to friends via social media to get help to find the lost items.
