As Gauss sums occur frequently in the calculation of the number of points on hypersurfaces over finite fields (see for example Ireland and Rosen (1990)), these same quantum algorithms can be used to approximately count such points with an accuracy that does not seem achievable classically (van Dam, 2004).
