iOS/Android: If you’re trying to follow an NBA game and you don’t have cable or you’re not in front of a TV, you can always keep tabs on the score from your phone. ClutchPoints not only gives you the score, it shows you real-time plays, video, detailed stats, and more.

Let’s say your roommate takes care of the rent, and you need to send her a check for your half every month. You could easily set up some monthly reminders, but better yet, make this task entirely automatic.
Android: There are plenty of alternative camera apps on Android, so it’s a little hard to stand out. Camera MX is doing a decent job though, most recently by adding Live Shots, which allow you to capture brief videos, in an easily shareable format.
Lots of music services let you share songs with others using direct links, but that can be messy when there are so many different music services out there. Songlink makes it easier to share songs with a wider audience by letting people decide where they want to listen when they click the link.
