THINK you’ve seen all of the apps you need? Think again. These apps are bound to appeal to members of your family.


1. Fairshare

This Australian-made app could save many arguments. If you’re in a shared home, this keeps track of who has done the household chores and when the bills need to be paid. You earn points in the app when you take your turn at cooking or clean the bathroom. You can also encourage those lazy flatmates when they do something around the house. A brilliant idea developed, not surprisingly, by a couple of house mates.

Apple iOS / Google Android/ free

2. Big Blue Box Farm

Apps aimed at young kids have to be entertaining and fun, or they won’t persist. This is another Australian-made app and it’s already ranking well in the app store. It’s aimed at 2-3 year-olds and sets them the challenge of discovering who (or what) is hiding behind the Big Blue Box. Repetitive use of words is designed to help language skills and the game is short and sharp.

Apple iOS / $1.99

3. Zombocalypse Now

It’s hard to go past the description in the app store: “You’re a stuffed bunny and it’s the end of the world.” This is an update on those “choose your ending” games. The app promises “hundreds of endings — at least seven of which don’t include your horrible demise”. Think Walking Dead but more bunnies. Despite the illustration style, just remember this is not a story book for young children.

Apple iOS / Google Android/ $2.99

Play Magnus

World chess champion Magnus Carlsen has released this app that lets you play against a “chess engine” that is designed to play like Magnus, at all ages from when he was five to his current age of 23. If you prove to be a chess champion in your own right, you could be chosen to participate in a live “Play Magnus Challenge” to be held in an as yet undisclosed location somewhere in the world next year.

Apple iOS / free

McAfee Mobile Security

If you’re concerned about security and privacy, the McAfee announcement at Mobile World Congress is good news. The free version of McAfee Mobile Security now has enhanced privacy features and the app is now also available in the iOS app store. Some of the features double up on Apple’s own but many people will like a secure “vault” to store their photos and videos.
