Top Apps to Have?

I want us to learn about something we may have never heard of. List your most favorite/useful apps and a brief summary of what they do.

My phone's too old to get all the ones I want so far, but I plan to get a new one soon. So far, I like these:

- Receipt Hog - Scan your receipts to get points = Paypal $

- Various food/beverage places only use apps to get promos (Jamba Juice, etc.)

- Certain movie theatre watcher programs only use apps to work

Photoscan - you can scan old photos with it
Shazam - because I never know who sings a particular song.It will tell you
Genius scan - you can scan documents and send to people as a pdf
Libby - the library app to download and listen to books
Stitcher - a place to keep all podcasts in one spot
Plantsnap (free version) you can take a picture of a plant or flower and it will identify it for you.

Calm app is one of my favorite too!

iTunes podcasts - listen to podcasts in the car or at home
The Wonder Weeks - Baby app - right on with developmental milestones etc.
Acorns - Savings account that rounds up each purchase you make and saves it (spend $1.40 .. save .60).
McDonald's - food coupons and specials
Starbucks - Link my gold card gift card to my app and get tons of points in free drinks, food, etc.
Tile - rings my keys, phone or purse

Digit - Savings tool. It's linked to your checking account, and makes small withdrawals to a savings account. You can set goals, set up rainy day funds, etc. I've already saved up enough for Christmas without really noticing.

Alltrails - hiking maps.

Carrot - snarky weather app.
