NoQ

Price: Free
Platform: iOS (iPhone)

This app has been around since August last year, but the makers of the app have just agreed to let its cafe partners develop self-branded versions of its app. App owner Hub IT says that it has already sold eight self-branded versions of NoQ, allowing the developer to spread the costs over multiple retailers. The app allows customers to order and pay for coffee and food in advance to avoid queuing. Those businesses that had decided to run their own branded versions of the app will still appear in the main app, but watch this space!

Call & SMS Tracker

Price: Free
Platform: Android

This app allows employers to keep track of how their business phones are used — or parents to keep an eye on how their children's phones are being used — without having to wait for a month for a bill. After installing the app, users can log in to a web interface at any time to review what calls and text messages have been made, sent or received.

Codea

Price: $8.49
Platform: iOS (iPad)

If you've ever wanted to create your very own iPad app, Codea aims to make it a bit easier by smoothing out the coding process. It includes a vector-graphics and image editor, sample projects to study and learn from, a random retro-music generator, auto-completion, in-line reference documentation and one-touch code editing. It even allows you to play around with the iPad's touch interface and accelerometer, so your creation can make better use of the device's capabilities.
