Below is a list of Mobile Apps that I use on a weekly, if not daily, basis.
They're useful for increased productivity, tracking & measuring things, learning, self-improvement and many others.
The ones I've listed are all ones that I've personally tried and found benefit (as with many of my clients).
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or better alternatives. I'll add them to the testing list, and update this list if they succeed.

I found this useful for sleep self-experiments.
It records through the night and gives you an easy to read frequency chart plotting levels of snoring.
You can also select factors you've used that night, to give you correlations of what helps or hinders good sleep.

Great for wine drinkers. Just scan the label of any bottle of wine, and it'll tell you the overall rating from hundreds of people, reviews, tasting notes, smells, and similar varieties. Plus it'll tell you the avg price so you know whether you're paying too much. Essential for any wine lover.
