Next to YouTube videos and ringtone downloads, news headlines would have to be one of the most accessed kinds of information on a mobile phone. This app comes in a paid version, or this bare-bones freebie for us cheapskates.

Though it carries the appropriate badges, this one isn't officially sanctioned by the might of McDonald's. Using Google Maps, this app will show Macca's locations near you with Wi-Fi access so you can dodge carrier download charges while you eat.
