    I've never been a big note-taker, but recently I've began noticing that I'm constantly writing something down on a piece of paper and then lose this paper. I've used the notes app on my phone, but I always find it a bit lacking, so I just got NoteLedge (a note-taking app by Kdan Mobile), and I've used it a couple of times already, and it seems to be working out so far. So now I have an app on my phone that I hope I'll get some use out of and actually create notes in there instead of just on some random bits of paper. I haven't discovered all the features yet, but I like what I've seen so far - intuitive design and cool tools. Hope this helps

    I have NoteLedge (for taking notes). I don't use it too often, but every once in a while I do have to takes notes for work, or do some light sketching, so using it just occasionally is already quite rewarding.

    Pocket Yoga

    Your yoga instructor everywhere you go.

    I've never done yoga, but I have an interest in trying it because I have a bad back. I keep this app around just in case I get the spontaneous urge to want to try it one of these days. I've had the app installed for the better part of nearly 2 years. I'm not proud of myself.

    Google Maps 4.0

    New material design brings bold graphics and fluid motion

    As someone who likes to travel and explore but don't have the best sense of direction, I rely on Google Maps a lot.

    Never know when you're abroad or get stuck in a situation where a quick translate could be necessary

    I always have this on my phone, even though I don't see a lot of movies, it seems to be super handy in the event that I need to go!

    Get Human

    Find customer service numbers fast

    This PH link is old, but since then it has the added functionality of handling certain issues for you for a fee (I haven't tried that out yet) as well as letting you hang up and, when one is available, connecting a customer service representative to you, so you aren't just sitting there on hold for ____ minutes.

    This is my go-to map app. I can see traffic, accidents and it reminds me when I need to leave for meetings or work. It's one of my favorite apps on my phone.

    I don't really use it unless I have to copy a piece of paper so that it looks like a photocopy.
