    An app called Twilight is fucking awesome. A study shows that people that use their smartphone or tablet at night have trouble sleeping because of the blue lights that your phone shows.
    You set this app to a timer that you want your phone to stop showing the blue light and instead only show the Red. Red helps your sleep.

    Also the SwiftKey keyboard is tits

    Some of my faves:

    RadarScope - real time Doppler weather radar coverage

    Scanner911 - standard police/fire radio scanner

    11C-Pro - Hewlett Packard 11C calculator emulator

    iHeartRadio and TuneIn Radio apps

    Watch ESPN - fairly straightforward, but the streaming is done very well

    Yahoo Sports - one of the best for getting sports scores, especially during college football season

    SkySafari - excellent app for identifying star and planets when you take the kids camping

    HBO Go - again, pretty simple, but works well

    My iPad adjusts automatically at 11pm with something called nightshade. Brings everything to the warmer tones.
