1. Keep an Eye on Your Money

Personal Capital Finance (Android, iOS) hooks into all of your financial accounts to give you a bird’s-eye view of your riches. The app includes tools to help you save, cut back, and invest, along with intelligent portfolio auditing to make sure your money’s working as hard as it can for you.

2. Slim Down Your Keychain

Use Key Ring (Android, iOS) to digitally store all those scannable loyalty cards that stores hand out. There are more than 2,000 cards built in, and the app doubles as a shareable shopping list that can be added to by friends and family with real-time updates. You can set Key Ring to surface relevant loyalty cards when you get near your favorite stores as well.

3. Update All Your Statuses

Buffer (Android, iOS) lets you post updates to Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, and the ever-popular App.net. You can build up a corral of interesting content that you find from various news services, spacing out each update as you see fit. There’s also a scheduling option so you can push updates out at pre-determined times, and built-in analytics so you can see how well your posts are doing.

4. Unify Your Inbox

CloudMagic (Android, iOS) grabs your email from just about every big-name email service, and offers IMAP and Microsoft Exchange compatibility. Your settings and accounts are saved to the cloud for quick synching to other devices, and messages can be saved to popular storage apps. And if you lose your phone, there’s even a remote-wipe feature to ensure your private communications don’t fall into the wrong hands. 

5. Grab Photos From Just About Anywhere.

Dayframe (Android) serves up an all-day slideshow of your photos, grabbing content from Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Flickr, and several other services. You can use your phone or tablet as a digital photo frame, or cast photos to a TV-connected Chromecast so you can see everything on the big screen.
