1. ToyEye (free)


Don’t you love those photos that make things look like little toys? Now you can master that cool effect too with ToyEye! And when you take pictures of toys with this app, it makes them look real! Just kidding. It totally doesn’t do that.


2. HEARD (free)


This app can help you capture sounds that happened as long as five minutes ago. When I first saw it, I said, “Oh sure, then I’ll just get in my DeLorean and take off!” I was puzzled to say the least, but then I learned that it runs in the background, and if you happen to miss something like a joke or driving directions, you can tap your screen to hear it again. Pretty cool, huh Marty?


3. Spinning Meals Smart Meal Planner ($1.99 from $2.99)


There is nothing worse than coming home after a long day at work and having to figure out what you’re having for dinner. It’s a pain, and it’s unhealthy because frequently the answer is “take out.”  This app can help you change all that by assisting you with generating meal plans and sorting the ingredients into a grocery list arranged by store aisle. Now all you have to do is prepare it!
