Here are some great apps ranging from call/text security to sports scores with a bit of business and workout help in between.

  1. Signal
    This app allows you to easily secure your phone calls and texts so that only the person that you’re contacting can understand the conversation. The app uses encryption technology and “just as idiot proof as the two most basic, lime-green iPhone communication buttons it replaces,” according to Wired.
  2. 7 Minute Workout
    Like the name suggests, this is an app that helps you squeeze in a workout in just seven minutes, which is claimed to be an effective method for a busy lifestyle. The app has voice prompts and visual cues for the 12 high intensity bodyweight exercises at 30 seconds each with 10 second rest in between. Apple says it’s the #1 fitness app in 127 countries.
  3. ReceiptPal
    Keep up with your receipts and earn rewards with this app that lets you take pictures of receipts and archive them, which is good if you keep receipt records for your taxes. And every receipt can earn you points toward gift cards and sweepstakes entries.
  4. EasilyDo 
    Syncing your email and contacts with this app can help you schedule emails and texts for a certain time or when you leave a place. It’s an all around assistant with package tracking and relevant alerts from your favorite social sites. “The free and stellar app, EasilyDo, automates a wide variety of simple tasks that add up to save you dramatic amounts of time and effort,” said PC Magazine.
  5. ESPN Score Center
    Check the game quickly and for free with this app from ESPN. Check scores for your favorite teams in more sports than most other apps. It can pull game data from baseball, basketball, soccer, ice hockey, cricket, rugby, and more. PC Magazine
