NO.1: Calorie Counter and Diet Tracker by MyFitnessPal: Price - Free
The app has been featured on NBC, USA Today, Marie Clair, and CNET, to name a few, and it provides tools to help get in shape and lose weight.

"This fast and easy-to-use calorie counter lets you keep track of your diet even while you're on the move," states MyFitnessPal. "Make use of the comprehensive database that includes over 590,000 foods and a speedy search function for exercises and take off those extra pounds in a hurry."

The app allows users to track their weight, goals, charts on progress, add nutrient information based on calories, protein, sugar, fibers, and cholesterol, to name a few.

One reviewer stated, "This app has helped me where I've failed so often before. It makes it so easy to track what you are eating. I am then sometimes surprised at what I've thought was healthy in the past, finding it those things really high in calories. Good Luck. This is a great tool to success!"

NO. 2: Reddit is fun: Price - Free

Developed by TalkLittle, the Reddit is fun app allows users to see what's going on in the Reddit universe, from what's "Hot," "New," and allows you to save what you find.

Users are able to share and comments on articles posted by fellow Redditors.

A reviewer wrote, "My daughter introduced reddit to me when I was visiting her. I didn't pay too much attention to it. A couple of nights later I was looking for something different to do and decided to download reddit. I was mainly wondering what she liked about it. Best app ever! Couldn't put it down. I especially like to read 'ask reddit' questions. Warning: You'll get addicted."

Amazon also provides a free "Test Drive" of the app, meaning you can use the app on your computer for a certain amount of time before giving the option of buying it - it's free.

In addition, games are provided such as Spelling Bee, Words within Words, and Hangman.

One reviewer wrote, "This dictionary has a good layout, reasonably-sized text, and gives you access to a wealth of content. All of the dictionary apps I've tried have their quirks, but this one is pretty straightforward. Nicely done. It does work well on a large screen (e.g., the Fire's 7-inch)."

NO 4: Battery HD: Price - Free

Users can be creative and choose the different type of lights, from light bulb, traffic signal, police lights, and change the background color entirely while the app is on.
A "Test Drive" is provided to users prior to installing the app, if they wish to do so.

A reviewer wrote, "I love it. It's a great little light, [SOS] function is practical. The strobe is fun. The cop lights .......whatever. This is great if you are a boater with the addition of the red ambient light."
