1 – Wolfram Alpha
Ever had a question Siri couldn’t answer? Wolfram Alpha is an app that answers questions like the little computer in the Star Trek television series. You can ask Wolfram Alpha to answer random facts or statistics about any topic, answer mathematical questions, and even plot graphs and equations.
2 – 1Password
1Password is a nifty app that makes entering your password or confidential details easy and secure. With so many unique passwords required for websites and apps, it can be exhausting remembering them all. 1Password only requires you to remember the app’s password – it does all the rest.

4 – Skiplagged
Skiplagged makes finding the best flight deal easy. Traditionally, when you search for a flight, you get search results including layovers as part of a flight package.

This can save you lots of money by going to layover stops instead of the final destination.
