There’s a very large range of apps to choose from when wanting to get a bit of weather info, but 1weather is a nice little app, which has everything you’d expect from a weather app; hourly weather, radar, forecasts etc. It also presents you with weather facts, which is pretty cool and has a nice, simplistic UI to top things off. Rating 8.5/10

Timely Alarm clock

If you’re getting a little tired of that stock alarm app on your phone then there’s a lot of choice for a replacement. Timely is probably the best you’ll find, it has a large array of features you can fiddle with to make waking from your slumber that bit more bearable. It also has a very intuitive gesture based design, such as swiping your finger down the screen to initiate the snooze feature. Rating 9/10

Branches for Twitter

Branches for Twitter is a third-party app which attempts to reduce some of the noise from your twitter feed . If you follow quite a lot of people you can miss important tweets from the people you enjoy to read from the sea of endless retweets of meaningless quotes and fitness blogs. Branches essentially groups each users tweets together and allows you to view them all at once. Rating 7/10

Norton Anti Theft

Norton anti theft does exactly what it says on the tin, well at least it attempts to. It help you  locate a stolen tablet or smartphone, it doesn’t eradicate theft completely. This works very much in the same way as find my iPhone / iPad allowing you to see where your lost or stolen device is on a map, wipe the data/lock the phone etc. It also plays an extremely loud, annoying noise continually until you throw the device off a wall if it believes said device has been stolen. Rating 7.5/10
