Peak – Brain Training: Are you interested in brain games? This educational app allows you to challenge your cognitive abilities to strengthen your memory, language, focus, coordination,problem solving skills, and more.

This app is available for both iOS and Android.

Todoist: Todoist is exactly what it sounds like – a to-do list app. You can clear your head by putting your to-do list on your phone, so you will not have to
remember it in your head. Todoist allows you to capture and organize tasks, remember deadlines, and review the day or week ahead of time. And, if you are one who likes to “check off” your completed tasks, it will let you do that too! Todoist is available for both iOS and Android devices.

Pages: This iOS only app is basically a word processor for your mobile device. Choose from a variety of templates for resumes, posters, reports, letters, and even books and start designing your document. Add drawings that you have created with the pen, pencil, crayon and fill tools. You can then invite others to work with you on the project and everyone will see the latest changes. With the
extra collaboration, your project will be done in an instant!

Motivation Quotes: This free iOS app is the #1 quote app for inspiration. If you are someone who is inspired and lives by motivational quotes, then this app is for you. Flip through hundreds of quotes and set reminders to read quotes at
certain times of the day. You can even share them with your friends, post them on Instagram, or set them as your wallpaper. You can also purchase the Premium app to get more quotes and have more text and background color options.
