We'll cut right to the chase: Cat Piano Free, as its name implies, lets you press piano keys on your iPhone that each have a different kitten meow. We're not really sure what the point of the app is, other than to freak out your cat if you have one.

The default file control on Android seems attractive, but it's definitely not as useful as a custom explorer. ES File Explorer is almost the exact opposite. The file explorer lets you see everything on your gadget in a menu that mimics the way you'd look at files on your computer. It's not very pretty to look at, though.
When you open the ES File Explorer app for the first time, it gives you a few tips for navigating. Those aren't really necessary since the app puts everything right in front of you. It doesn't just … Read more
