Arrivo Sydney

Platform: Android

Price: AU$2.99

Arrivo Sydney has recently been updated to reflect the availability of GPS data for Sydney buses. The new information means that users can now quickly look up where their bus actually is, or whether there's an earlier one they can jump on that passes their destination.

It's one of the first few apps to take advantage of the data, but we expect more apps to get onboard soon.

Facebook Pages Manager

Platform: Android

Price: Free

Businesses that have an online presence on Facebook will be able to access statistics and insights into how they are performing on the social network. It also allows administrators to post new updates, photos and responses as the Page, eliminating any accidental posts from personal accounts.

Fitocracy

Platform: Android

Price: Free

Fitocracy has now rolled out a Android version of its app, alongside its existing iOS app. The idea behind Fitocracy is to earn points with every workout, so that users can level up and duel with other participants. Or for the achievement hunter, there are a number of quests they can embark on, and badges to be earned for certain feats.

PlayTube

Platform: iOS

Price: Free

Another YouTube player for iOS, PlayTube's main feature is the ability to cache videos so that they can be watched later. If you're ever in a demo and the Wi-Fi network becomes congested, this could save you. Or it could be used to continue watching that video your colleague passed to you while on the train and out of reception.

PresentEasy

Platform: iOS

Price: AU$0.99

PresentEasy allows users to see their slideshows on their phone, complete with slide notes, while maintaining control of their presentation. Navigating between slides is achieved by simply swiping left or right, and users can skip straight to the first or last slide if need be.

Python 3.4 for iOS

Platform: iOS

Price: AU$2.99

Sometimes, some coding ideas are too good to let them get away, but they present themselves at times when you're away from your keyboard. Python 3.4 for iOS eliminates that problem by providing a complete development environment on iOS. It has an interactive interpreter for testing and writing code, and complete documentation.

Share The Fare

Platform: iOS

Price: Free

Sometimes you land at the airport, watch the guy in front of you steal your cab, and then find out that you were both going to the same place, anyway. Share The Fare aims to save your cash and put like-destined travellers in the same boat — or taxi, as it were. Users are rated by other fare sharers, so for those late nights when travelling alone isn't a great idea, users can be assured that their "match" has been vetted.

TrackMySpend

Platform: Android

Price: Free

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has come up with its own personal expenses tracker, expanding its advice currently put together by financial planners and available on its website. The app, which is in beta, allows users to monitor their spending against a budget, and help identify where they could save money. Data can be backed up as well as exported to CSV format.
