Top Apps to Help You #Save Your Time, Money and Sanity! #VZWVoices

Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Savers Voices program and have been provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.
top appsIn September Verizon sent me the new Droid Ultra to review. I’ve had Droids for a while now, so at first the phone didn’t wow me. It has it’s stalkerish features, but it has a lot of other fun things I’ll write about later.

Since it is a Droid, it has a lot of familiar features and apps that I use on a daily basis. Some help save a little bit of time during the day, others help keep me on task. Below are some of my top app picks, feel free to tell me what other apps should make the list! All apps listed below are free, but some have paid options as well!
