I think the only other Google services and apps I use on my Android phone that I don’t see on the iPhone are Google Keep and Google Wallet. Chromecast support is provided in iOS through some Google services.

Camera Awesome: Most photography apps these days seem to be exclusively focused on sharing, or adding stupid filters to your pictures (hint: the worst offender rhymes with Minstertram). Camera Awesome is a breath of fresh air. Rather than ruin those ever-important photos of your meals, Camera Awesome is dedicated to making them better. Let’s face it, phone cameras aren’t always that great, but they’re a darn sight easier to carry around than a DSLR — any way to improve those photos is essential. [£1.87]

Tiny Death Star: A full-scale rebellion may be taking place, but that doesn’t mean an end to the galactic economy. In Tiny Death Star you can join forces with Palpatine and Darth Vader to build a brand new Death Star and fill it with profitable businesses. All proceeds go towards eliminating the rebel scum.

It’s a good idea to keep your apps up to date on your smartphone or tablet to get the latest levels or important bug and security fixes. However, it’s always ideal to just let them update without your permission.

GPS Voice Navigation: Pretty much everything you need from a GPS app. Real time tracking, estimated arrival times, turn-by-turn directions, and speed camera/police trap warnings. Useful if you don’t yet have a decent GPS on your phone, especially since it lets you choose which map service you want to use: Google, Bing, or MapQuest. Hurry, it’s only free for a limited time.

4OD: Ah, on demand services, what would we do without you? Well, probably invest in DVRs, but I digress. 4OD is now available for you Windows users so that you can catch up on the latest in Channel 4′s programming wherever you are (data pending of course). Whether it be last night’s Big Bang Theory, Agents of SHIELD, or a terrible piece of faux reality TV, then this is the app for you. [Free]
