MobiQpons helps find bargains and coupons. The app looks for discounts by keeping track of your location and scanning for deals. It also lets you scan coupons right from your cell-phone screen.

Check Please, which is a specialized calculator that helps you to figure out the tip at a restaurant and to divide your check with friends.

Snap Tell, an app that uses the pictures you take with your phone and search for reviews and prices. For instance, if you take a photo of a book or DVD cover, it will use that image to search for user reviews and competing prices.
