Webscape on latest mobile apps and culinary tips

Kate Russell gives her latest selection of the best sites on the World Wide Web.

LAYAR (http://layar.com)

Augmented reality applications for mobile phones are new tools that encourage users to explore the world around them.

These apps display layers of useful data, such as the nearest cafes, over the images seen through a mobile phone camera.

Layar.com offers budding developers a chance to create original layers for the app's own handset browser.

ALTERNATIVETO (http://alternativeto.net)

Alternativeto.net suggests a variety of applications that serve as alternatives to the market leaders.

Search for the app you want to replace - and most of the suggestions that come up should be open source and free.

Users can also mark apps as favourites which means finding the most popular content is very easy.

SUPERCOOK (www.supercook.com)

This site is a great way to help you make the most of the food left in your kitchen cupboards.

Just type the ingredients into Supercook.com and a list of suggested recipes comes up.

If you register you can save your favourite recipes for quick reference in the future.

CONVERTIT (www.youconvertit.com)

Youconvertit.com lets you convert a batch of up to five files from one format into another.

This tool is more than just a video converter, as it can handle documents, spreadsheets, html, images, audio and a lot more.

You can also use it to download video clips from a website, or send files up to 100MB in size.
