Are you looking to make your smartphone or tablet more useful? Each week, we collect the latest productivity apps for Android, iOS and Windows Phone; all of which are 100 per cent free! Here are this week's highlights.
This is a hand-picked list of free apps we've noticed this week while assembling our regular App Deals roundup of new and discounted apps. We haven't reviewed them and we don't endorse them.
