1. Pocket Drive
Turn your iPhone or iPad into a storage device – if you’ve any room left on it! This freebie (with in-app purchases) lets you store stuff on the free area of your device sort of like a USB thumb drive.

2. Battery Doctor
This popular freebie is for monitoring your battery, it’s charging specifics and what is going on with the apps as to how the battery is used. Fun.

3. Translate Languages In Real Time
Speak and this app speaks what you have said in any of 66 languages! A bit like Star Trek for free. The $5 paid version has no ads and can switch between the Google and Microsoft translation engines. All in all pretty awesome.

4. Recover Deleted iPhone Photos
We’ve all deleted photos and regretted it later. Actually within a month they can be recovered...

5. iPhone Camera Tips
While we're on the iPhone, this short video shows some clever things to make your camera even more awesome.

6. Desktop Images
Wallpapers Wide have thousands of free images that you can download, pop into a folder somewhere then tell System Preferences/Desktop & Screensaver/Desktop to use it for your Desktop. Click the Folders icon and choose the folder where you stored the images and tell it how often to change them.

7. Google Remote Desktop
As usual with Google it’s free. Control your computer at home remotely with your iPhone or iPad

8. Duet Display to Use Your iPad As 2nd Display
A very clever solution for an extra screen: use your iPad! For $15 from the App Store their software lets your regular Lightning cable for iPhone or iPad link it to your computer and give you 2 screens. Great for smaller computers like laptops.

9. Set Up Family Sharing
Although it a bit of a fiddle to work through the screens to set it up, family sharing is great if there are several members of your mob who need to share an Apple ID and credit card. They can access all the content across up to 6 devices and keep tabs on the location of the members! For free...

10. Audio Hijack 3
Long popular as a means to capture audio on your Mac from any source: a Skype conversation, the sound from a DVD, sound from your browser or also to sweeten the sound you have. Audio HiJack Pro has become Audio Hijack 3 with a welcome overhaul of the previously difficult to use interface. At $50 its a handy tool if you do any of these things.
