Got one them fancy Smart phones? 'Appen you'll be wanting something to put on it then.


Luckily, in a brand new feature that we're calling Planet of the Apps, technology expert Stuart Dredge will trawl through this ever expanding universe and report his findings to us every Tuesday. We'll provide links to each of them so that you can check them out and decide if you want to download them.


In part one Stuart brings us App news, including your chance to remix tracks from David Bowie's Golden Years album, the band who bcame the first to make their album entirely via the GarageBand app and how you can now 'check in' to TV shows on Facebook.


He'll also be reviewing three new apps: the interactive Situationist, photo sharer Color and 'the curated and social video experience' that is SquareEyes.


Another Biorhythm contender offers up his mood altering musical choices and talking of which the ever popular indie-folk from Providence, Long Island, The Low Anthem provide what promises to be a charged live session.


There's also the second of this week's free download tracks for you and today's selection makes a tenuous nod to the fiftieth anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's entry into orbit and the history books.


It's called BeautifulUniverseMasterChampion from hard rocking Belfast quartet And So I Watch You From Afar which will be the opening track on their forthcoming album 'Gangs'.
