NEWS, INFORMATION and BOOKS

 

 

FLUENT NEWS
iPad/iPhone, FREE

"Late-breaking news headlines from a diversity of sources, from Fox News to Al Jazeera and everything in between. In-depth opinion pieces and analysis by publications such as The Economist make great reading and you can download the content when you are online and read it offline at your leisure." - Christine Satchell

 

 

MAKE USE OF 
Android/iPad/iPhone, FREE

"The best place to find out anything to do with technology, and the many ways in which we attempt to engage with it. A quick visit is almost impossible, though, as one is instantly distracted by the 'cool websites' and how-to features." CS

 

POCKET WEATHER AU
iPad/iPhone, $2.49

Yes, the iPhone does come with an inbuilt weather app, but it fails miserably in the detail stakes. This sources weather info directly from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and includes the latest synoptic charts, rain radars and national satellite pictures. One for all those weather geeks out there, with an ultra-slick design, too.

 

STANZA
iPad/iPhone, FREE

A good-looking, easy-to-use e-reader much like Amazon's Kindle app, except that Stanza isn't affiliated with a dedicated e-book store. It's the most customisable e-reader app out there, and offers both free (Dickens, Freud or Fitzgerald, anyone?) and paid books from a variety of different stores.

 

iBOOKS
iPad/iPhone, FREE

Like Stanza, this allows you to download books to your iPhone or iPad. Titles are stored on a bookshelf, so you can peruse your very own virtual library.

 

ABC IVIEW
iPad, FREE
