- I have a taste for gelato! This one is a food lovers’ dream app. ‘Foodspotting’ is based on the concept that food is meant to be shared visually. Type in the particular food you are craving and recommendations pop-up through visually stunning images of the dish. It is a local food guide based on dishes not restaurants.

- Sunscreen. No this app doesn’t list the most popular sunscreens available. It detects the UVI levels/rating of the sun in your current location and sets a timer to tell you when you’re due for another application of sunscreen. ‘Sunscreen’ is a must have for trips to the beach, theme parks, pool side visits and a day of sight-seeing/touring.
