This is especially useful to those who put their iPhones on silent during work hours. Costs $3.99.

Marco Polo (Matt Wiechec, available on iOS) – Call it a fun way of finding your misplaced iPhone or any other Apple device.

Autotext PhraseExpress (Bartels Media GmbH, available on Android) – This productivity app allows users input their frequently used phrases, statistics, and signatures for emails and text messages. The free version lets users store up to 25 items, while an in-app purchase of $4.99 provides storage for unlimited phrases, all organized in handy drop-down menus.
