BUSINESS SIDE apps we love Things Anatomy in Motion Manilla Dots AnatomyMapp Lumosity iBank MyoFinder Browse through the features of each and find the app that matches your specific needs. Here are a few that I've used or have heard good things about: Trail Guide to the Body's AnatomyMapp, MyoFinder, and Anatomy in Motion. LS: And when it comes to managing your money, apps are making big strides. Most of the bigger banks now have their own app, so check to see if yours does. It's a quick and easy way to check your balances, pay bills, and transfer money without having to hop in the car. If you use a personal-finance manager, check to see what they offer. I use iBank (again, for the Mac), and they have a mobile version and a more robust iPad version (in addition to the desktop version). Mint is a money management app that made the Mac App Store "Best of 2012" list, and is free for both Apple and Android. Manilla is a bill tracker that is also free and on both Apple and Android, and regularly is mentioned among "must-haves" in money management articles. PayPal has a mobile app that can allow you to take payment, scan checks, and send or request money. And lastly, you should have a few good time-wasters in case you have a tardy client: Angry Birds (very 2011), Lumosity (the basic version is free), and Dots (I admit I am addicted to this). KC: I just started using Lumosity, too (hope it's working), love the quick bursts of inspiration from the TED Talks, and am still trying to beat my mom at Scrabble. LS: Did I mention I like Dots?
