KeePass and MiniKeePass (iOS): I’ve used this free, easyto-use password management tool for more than five years to keep track of all my passwords. It generates passwords too, so you don’t need to think up new ones.

Zite (iOS/Android): Like an intelligent curator of content, Zite monitors what I read and like to determine the type of news/information I’ll find engaging. Absolutely a musthave for discovering information in a serendipitous way!

TED (iOS/Android): Since I’ve set the goal of learning one new thing every day, this app helps me fulfil it with ease. There’s always something to learn – be it a simple tip, a heart-warming story or a surprising find!

Daily Workouts (iOS/Android): This app kind of acts as a “personal trainer”. Workouts range from cardio to abs to full body. Simply do as the “trainer” does and keep fit.
