Waze Social GPS Maps & Traffic ( iOS)
For anyone looking for more reliable traffic data than Apple's and Google's stock maps applications, Waze is definitely worth a download.
Microsoft Excel ( Android)
The Office Android apps are perfect for major and minor edits on the go.
WhatsApp Messenger ( Android)
Though you only get a few extra useful features, WhatsApp Messenger is an excellent choice for sending free texts across platforms, even internationally.
iTunes 11 is a much-needed refresh with a new interface and a useful MiniPlayer, but it's still a little overly complex for its own good.
DoubleTwist ( Android)
DoubleTwist is the best music player we've seen on Android. And with the premium AirSync upgrade (highly recommended), it makes it a snap to sync and transfer music between your mobile device and your desktop.
BringGo USA & CAN ( Android)
BringGo navigation works well as inexpensive in-dash navigation for certain Chevrolet vehicles, but as a standalone navigation app, it's not a very good choice.
Navfree USA: Free Satnav ( Android)
Navfree USA is about as basic as navigation apps get, but its ability to store local map data, its frequent updates, and the fact that it's free make it an invaluable tool for Android navigation.
Yahoo! ( Android)
More than just a news app, Yahoo stands out for its customization and search tools.
Mint Bills ( Android)
Mint Bills is a convenient way to pay your bills on your phone, but only if you remember to send your payments in early.
