  • Tunity – Ever been to a noisy bar and can’t hear what the announcers are saying on the TV? This app allows you to play the sound of the TV from your device. It scans the TV and figures out what channel is on. Then, audio begins playing through your phone.

  • RunPee – Having to use the restroom while watching a movie can be rough. This app tells you the best time to get up to go. Just set what movie you’re watching and it will tell you the best times to use the restroom. It will even give you a short summary of what’s happening while you’re away!
  • Pushbullet – Checking your phone notifications while working can become a juggling task. This app pushes notifications from your phone to other devices. You can also push links and files from your phone to your desktop. And the best part? There’s full SMS integration so you can view entire conversations from your desktop.
  • Listen on Repeat – This one is pretty straightforward. There are a few reasons why this app is great. Not only will it let you play your favorite YouTube clips on repeat, it allows you to turn the screen off while listening. In terms of saving battery life, this will help greatly.
