    I use a ton of these, but there’s a bunch I haven’t even heard of that I’d like to check out. I have a basic notation app, but Evernote seems MUCH better. Ancestry is cool; I recently learned my great, great, great grandfather was from the same village in Ireland as the great, great, great grandfather of one of my coworkers here at DISH. Another of my favorite apps over the last year has been the DISH Remote Access app I picked up a while back. It lets me view both live and recorded TV off my home receiver from where ever I am, as long as I can get a 3G or wifi connection. It’s great for travelling, same as a lot of the apps you have listed.
