Best new Android, iPhone and iPad apps for December 2012
First, we have to say that this was an amazing year for apps and games on mobile. Best news of the year is that for smartphones there is now almost no app gap between Android and the iPhone. Developers have finally realized we’re living in a world of smartphone duality and began coding for both platforms.
Most high-profile apps are now being released simultaneously for both iOS and Android. The brightest example came with Snapseed this month. The $4.99 iOS app acquired earlier by Google made a splashing debut on Android, selling for the sweet price of zero, and the price on iOS was also slashed to free.
But we have some innovative and surprising apps in this month’s list. What’s more important - we have plenty of reasons to get excited about app development in the forthcoming year. While hardware now goes to quad-cores and 1080p displays, we are already starting to see less excitement about specs, and more about what we can do with all this hardware. And that’s the question that really matters.

That Send It Pro app' looks killer; probably best and most efficient of the bunch!
I also think it was very magnanimous of Google to make available [again] Google Maps for iOS [FOR FREE], considering the iNgraciOus nature of that platform's parent company.
