    LevelUp

    Platform: Android

    Price: Free

    I go out and purchase lunch about once a week and one of my favorite places to go is a local fantastic teriyaki joint. I saw that they support a wireless pay method, LevelUp, and installed it on my Android device last year. You get $5 credit for signing up and then use a QR code to pay for your meal.

    LevelUp

    Platform: Android

    Price: Free

    You have the option of adding a tip to your bill by sliding the tip bar at the bottom and the QR code changes to match that percentage. The more you pay with LevelUp, the more reward credits you earn for cash discounts. You can share the app with others and earn $5 for yourself each time too.

    1Password

    Platform: iOS

    Price: $8.99 (regularly $17.99)

    I heard a lot about 1Password, but always just tried to remember my passwords or place some of the information into Evernote. With a current 50% off sale, I decided to finally give it a try and really like the design and security. It is much easier to just remember one password and then get access to your other passwords and much more.
