If you’re looking for love, then Match.com is one of the best dating apps you can download. A veteran of the dating game, Match.com wants you to find love by “winking” at matches through the app, whether that’s from your own searches, or through Match’s own recommendations. You’re going to want a subscription to get the most out of it though, and that can get a little pricey — $21 a month for six months — but it does allow you to see who’s viewed your profile and liked your pictures, as well as a lot of other features.

Save more money — Qapital

If you’re not great at saving money yourself, then you might find a rules-based app like Qapital will work for you. It links to your savings account, then uses IFTTT (if this then that) rules to trigger the transfer of money every time you perform a specific task. So if you’re addicted to Starbucks, you can set up the app to save $5 every time you buy from the coffee shop. There’s a freelancer rule, which sets aside a certain percentage for tax every time you get paid, and it can provide alerts or stop payments when cash is tight.
