Don't slow down
Buggy, unreliable and pointless. Crowdsourced images.
If you're not looking for an in depth guide to Bangkok then this one does a great job of summing up the best of what the city has to offer. The app is easy to use, well written and concise. Perhaps a little pricey for the depth of information but overall a good buy.
This is basically an interface to the popular website associated with this app. Lots of crowdsourced information related to Hanoi. Requires an internet connection to function properly. Based of Google Maps. Promising.
This is one of our own apps, so I'll lay off the hyperbole, but it offers comprehensive coverage of Thailand's Ko Samet island near Bangkok. Includes background information, accommodation and eat and meet, sights and attractions, transport, photo gallery, mapping and so on. It's 100% original content -- no crowdsourcing involved.

If you're a frequent traveller and aim for hostel-style accommodation, this app is close to essential. Considerably better than HostelWorld's own app, this demonstrates creativity and a good knowledge on what a traveller really needs.
Terrific interface and extremely easy to use. I send a lot more postcards than I use to. An easy five stars.
Very easy to use, quite quick loading (though expect the occasional timeout if you don't have a strong signal). Supports multiple accounts and very easy to digest layout and UI. Highly recommended.
At first glance, this looks like a very promising app and I think over time it will develop into one, but at the moment the user interface is very confusing and poorly labled. The mapping is good (uses OpenStreetMaps rather than Google) and I like the sepia explorers map look of the app. One particular gripe is when you go to add another waypoint your super zoomed in needing a lot of zooming out to get to a level where you can easily pick the next town (unless of course you're recording a trip from home to the corner store).
Shows promise but not quite there yet.
Downloaded this on a whim and lost a couple of days as a result. Very easy to pick up, gets progressively more difficult at about the right pace and at times is quite humorous. An easy five stars.
My three year old got totally engrossed in using this, but after watching her use it for a bit, the following could be improved.
a) The "home" button at top right is too small and difficult for her to action and the section headers on the front page (read myself, be read to, colour in) could be far more obvious.
b) The swish motion is not responsive enough -- it requires a little too mush pressure to action, often resulting in the book jumping multiple pages.
c) More colours in the colouring in would be good.
I guess with a slightly older child these wouldn't be an issue -- my daughter loves it, but would be even better if I didn't need to restart it for her every time!
You're an adorable tadpole, fighting to keep the blight from Shady Glen by chomping drops of water, mushrooms, carbon and oil. Escape from blight by tilting, causing your tadpole to leap from side to side. XEOPlay is a leader in the emotions of games, and it shows in the attention to detail such as blinking tadpole eyes and lovingly-crafted background art that put you in a blissful state and make you just fall in love with your little tadpole and feel right at home in Shady Glen.
So, I am thinking there must be a way to use another app and hear my eclectic Pandora station in the background? Or am I running into the iPad's limits here? It's frustrating, because while I love my personal station and the QuickMix of songs from Pandora, I am really used to using Pandora on the web as background music while I do other work.
