Pimp Your Screen app for iPad and iPhone

Pimp Your Screen
A one-dollar utility app filled to the brim with images and skins for your devices, Pimp Your Screen allows users to completely customize both the home screen and the locked screen with skins for icons that add even more eye candy. There's an instant preview that allows users to see how it looks, though this won't reflect the configuration of your apps, but it does give you an idea of how "pimped" your screen will be. There is a seemingly infinite amount of configurations and combinations with landscape and portrait images and the ability to share across Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or email. Version 1.6 recently added more neon combos, app shelves, icon skins and home screens which increased the options available. It's not the type of app to improve functionality but you're the one that needs to stare at your device, so this app can help to give it an extra kick.

Repeat Timer Pro for iPad and iPhone

Repeat Time Pro
Repeat Timer Pro is for anyone who likes or needs to keep track of time either during workouts, meetings, work projects, cooking... whatever. There's much more functionality here than in the default iOS clock timer with 26 alerts, three independent timers that can run simultaneously, background functionality with notifications, an interval timer, intuitive controls and an elegant interface. The Interval Timer, a secondary timer that runs between the main timer cycles, is this utility app's best feature. This is especially good for fitness workouts where one timer is set for exercise and the interval timer set for a shorter timeframe and used for a quick cool down before ramping up the exercise again. Repeat Timer Pro is one of those utility apps that you don't know you need until you start using it and can be applied to just about any situation.

Onavo Extend app for iPhone and iPad

Onavo Extend
Onavo promises to save you money. It's free so that's a good start, but the idea of this app is to compress data automatically to help you reduce data usage on your phone in order to save you money should you exceed your plan's data allotment. It's particularly good for travelling overseas, where data roaming can blow out your phone bill to astronomical amounts. It doesn't work for streaming video but everything else you do on the internet, including email and application data, is routed through Onavo's servers, compressed, and then sent to your device. It will automatically switch off when you're
connected to a Wi-Fi network and switches itself back on when you leave Wi-Fi range.

The user interface consists of three menus - Data Saver, Reports, and Settings. Data Saver tells you if the app is running and how much data you are currently saving while Reports breaks down the data usage statistics into illustrated charts and graphics to let you know how much data you are saving/using and where that data is coming from. Settings provides you with a wealth of options, from whether you want to compress email data, to a sliding scale used to choose image compression quality; the lower the quality, the more data you save.
