They’ll help keep you on track and help to get more done.

Scraps is an app that helps you to organise your thoughts. When you have a random idea or insight launch the app, jot it down and come back to it later.

We're obsessed with Carrot. The sadistic to-do list keeps us coming back everyday itching to check off another thing from our list. Carrot is unique in that it gets mad at you when you don't get the things you're supposed to do done.

1Password helps you to never forget your passwords again. Don't be discouraged by the price, for what this app can do it's certainly worth it. 1Password remembers all of your passwords so you don't ever have to type one in again. Everything is done securely so that you don't have to ever use the same password twice too.

Price: $17.99

CoBook is a non-destructive address book. This means that whatever you do in the app does not negatively affect your stock iPhone address book. CoBook is good because its easy to use and updates contacts with current pictures, emails and phone numbers. Besides that you can stay on top of your contacts by also viewing their latest tweets.

Price: Free

Cue helps organise your day. The app links all your accounts like Gmail, Calendar, Twitter, Dropbox, and other networks to help you get a realistic view of what your day will look like. Cue is a centralized place to know what's coming up next.
