Don't take this app too lightly; fantasy footy can be quite addictive.

  • 8. Aussie Slang Dictionary

    Price: $1.19

  • 5. Drink Tracker

    Price: $1.99

    Two dollars is a small price to pay compared to being caught over the limit by the boys in blue. [[xref:|Drink Tracker]] records how many drinks you have had, along with the times of your drinks. Set a target BAC, and a countdown timer will show you how long it will take for that target to be reached. Obviously, we can't guarantee its accuracy — so think about getting a taxi if you've had a few.

  • 9. NRL Rugby League 2010
