Best hidden features of popular apps?

I recently downloaded MeatText () because of Troika's comment in this post () on the blue, tried it out, and the person I tried it out on replied "How is this better than Google Maps"? Turns out GMaps for mobile has a similar feature but its pretty well hidden. I had no idea it existed. What are some other features or functions of popular apps (web, mobile, tablet, or other) that may be hidden or just unnoticed that you find particularly useful?

Is there a good site or app to monitor Canadian grocery flyers?

I'm hoping to start our food and sundries budget off on the right foot by shopping the sales as much as possible, but going through flyers and/or finding coupons on store at a time can be really tedious. There has to be a site or app for this, but I seem to be striking out.   Any recommendations from the hive mind? Bonus made-up points for anything that lets me set even basic alerts.   (The Canada factor is key--the initial few apps I've looked at have been US-only.)
