A branch of Sony have released a brilliant little photo album application for Android, which organises the photos stored on your device into a page-turning experience.
Ever been out for a meal with friends, and get confused at the end of the meal trying to work out who ate what, who is paying for what and who owes who money? I know I have, which is why this app is a huge lifeline from situations like that.
Billr is an app for iPhone which lets you pick how many people are eating with you, how much the cost of each person’s food is, and from that you can estimate how much you should tip.
What brought me to this application was the brilliant looking user interface. I’m always willing to try out any app which has a nice icon and UI such as this, and it just makes the whole experience of navigating the menus a much nicer one.
It costs 69p/$0.99, which isn’t much considering how much you will use this, trust me.

A couple of weeks ago, we featured a story on a new watch, the QlockTwo, which spells you the time instead of showing the typical hands or digital layout. We loved the futuristic but classy display, and the fact that it took a new approach at time-telling which could always become a conversation starter.
If you can’t afford the almost $300 price-tag, then there is an alternative for iPad and iPhone users, in the form of a new application which mimics the watch’s abilities perfectly.
It costs a pretty reasonable $0.99, or 69p for us in the UK, and for that price it’s certainly worth giving a go, to see if you can get a grip of the way it works before you consider emptying your life savings on the fancy QlockTwo watch or clock.
It’s taken a very long time, especially for people from the UK, but Spotify has finally released it’s iPad application to iTunes.
As joked in the launch day trailer, it’s not just a larger version of the iPhone application. It has it’s own completely exclusive user interface which is just glorious, both to look at and to use.
Much like the official Twitter application, Spotify uses swipe gestures to give the experience a layered experience. Once you have selected one of your playlists, you can enter full screen mode. Spotify have taken the idea of cover flow by Apple and changed into a more modern looking way to skip backwards and forwards through your music.
This is one of the greatest applications I have ever seen on the iPad, and goes right up there with Tweetbot and Paper as the best and most user friendly apps available. It’s totally been worth the wait.
All though this isn’t a review, I thought I’d rate it with a 5 out of 5. So far after a solid day of use, I haven’t found anything I don’t like about it – I will update the rating if I change my mind!
A quick search on iTunes on either your iPad or Desktop will find the app. As usual for separate devices on Spotify, you need a premium account to use it.
