Here are some good ones some of which have not been mentioned yet



Basically allows you to create "if x then y" statements across your different apps. For example, I have one to email my new phone contacts a "nice to meet you" email verifying that I put in their info correctly.



Bump! Not enough mentions of some of the great smartphone automation apps that exist out there. In addition to IF, for any Android users I would recommend Llama and if you are really interested in automation Tasker. 

Llama is great because you do more complex tasks & statements than IF such as having your WiFi automatically turn on when you enter your home or turn off when you leave. Tasker can allow you to automate just about anything...

I live off my phone, even do my job on it to a point when away from my desk so corp email, gmail, google hangouts, text, etc let me function remotely. Even VPN into work to access the management interfaces I need to work. Beyond that there are several others I get a lot of mileage out of.

-Google keep for notes, lists, general info I frequently need to remember
-Google calendar for work schedule, appointments, bills, pay weeks, kids' events, etc
-S Health for tracking steps, bike rides, walks, runs
-Citizens Bank app and widget to track balances
-Android Pay for all those freaking shopper club cards every.single.store has (gets them out of my wallet)
-Google Now voice commands to set reminders, alarms, count down timers
-JuiceSSH to remote my Kodi Linux HTC without getting off the couch to push the power button hahaha
-barcode2file used to scan asset tags at work on a daily basis
-whitenoise for rain on tent or other noises to help me sleep

I have a Moto Z Force.  The thing I love about this is the factory installed "shake it" flashlight app.  Shake the phone, and the flashlight comes on whether screen locked, asleep, or whatever.  Awesome.  









Yahoo Mail


Calculator Plus from the Play Store (paid version)


WeatherBug - there are probably better weather apps, but I've been using it since my first smartphone so I stick with it..

Epocrates - the pro version


Kindle for Android


And I have myriad performance/malware/manager apps on one of my screens, but I typically rely on scheduled activity.  I kind of like seeing them and knowing they're there.  
I use the camera a lot too.  I have a 14 month old.  All my pics load to DropBox and Google Photos when connected to WiFi.  


I have some other cool apps such as one from HP to print from my phone or tablet.  DailyBible.  PsychGuide (paid).  SAS Survival, Wilderness and Urban, bought and paid for.  US Topo Maps, premium.  Amazon Music with my Prime membership.  Firefox with DuckDuckGo although I admittedly don't use it.  Cool nonetheless.

I carry an iPhone. So some of my apps are iOS specific, but the apps I use everyday are:

Apple Music
Storm (weather and storm tracking)
Bear (note taking)
BBC iPlayer
Wire (messaging)
NPR one
iCloud Drive

I keep as few apps on my phone as possible, as I'm really anal about that to be honest. So beyond a few of the default apps, my financial apps, insurance apps and my ukulele tuner app, that actually makes up all my apps. I only add a few apps when traveling, namely Citymapper, for checking bus times and routes in London. My most used app though on a duly basis is Storm. As a motor and bicyclist, hyper accurate weather and storm tracking is pretty essential.
