21st Century living is awesome! Our world is so simplified and tidy, everything we need to keep ourselves entertained may be found in our pockets on our mobile devices: our music, our newspapers, our obsessions with other peoples’ lives and things. Which is why we love these three new apps for music, Craiglists and notifications. Read on to find out more.

What It Does: MobileNotifier gives you alerts on top of running applications on your iPhone. The application is unobtrusive and not as pushy as Apple’s built in notification system, which is basically pop-ups. This app can only be used on jailbroken iphones, so if you need a reason to jaibreak and escape Apple’s system, then this is it. Best part of the app is the ability to ignore it and get on using the device. 

Platform:  iPhone

Costs: Free
