ReceiptMatch from AMEX (Free)

What’s it about? Keep track of all your business spending and save your receipts with the help of American Express's ReceiptMatch.

What’s cool? ReceiptMatch is a pretty handy app if you're an American Express Business Card customer. The app makes it possible to save your receipts just by snapping a picture of them with your mobile device, which makes it really easy to keep organized and avoid losing important receipts in the future. Even better, the app links with your credit card account, so every time you snap a receipt shot, the app automatically matches it with the corresponding charge on your billing statement, helping you to keep track of every charge at the end of the month. You can also add notes to receipts for more annotation and details.

Who’s it for? If you're an American Express customer for your business, try ReceiptMatch.

What’s it like? Digital Receipts and Receipt Wallet are a pair of good receipt-saving alternatives, in case you're not an American Express customer.

Swype (Free)

What’s it about? Keyboard app Swype provides users with a number of different options for composing text on their mobile devices, from tapping and typing to dictation and swipe-based input.

What’s cool? Typing on a mobile device can be a pain. From goofy auto-corrects to just the irritation of small keys, composing messages and emails isn't always as pleasant as it should be. Swype is best-known for its gesture-based typing input that lets you swipe across the keyboard quickly to make words, with the app interpreting what you're trying to write, but it also supports standard typing and even dictation. It also pays attention to your input and adapts it based on how you use the app, and adapts its language capabilities based on what you write, as well.

Who’s it for? If you're looking for a better way to type on your phone or tablet, try Swype.

What’s it like? TouchPal Keyboard and Swiftkey are two popular keyboard replacements, and both support gesture typing.

Zombie HQ (Free)

What’s it about? Scavenge a zombie-infested city to find new equipment, armor, weapons and more, and use it all to thrash the undead and create an awesome base in Zombie HQ.

What’s cool? Lots of games put players in the middle of the zombie apocalypse, but they rarely let you make a home for yourself in the middle of it. Top-down shooter Zombie HQ is a little different. You'll spend most of your time smashing through zombies to find new gear and become a more effective fighter. But between the game's missions, you'll be able to deck out your own zombie headquarters with items like arcade machines, pool tables, and a giant hamster wheel with a zombie in it. Then, when you're done hanging out in the HQ, you can head back into the field and blast through the hordes once more.

Who’s it for? Fans of zombie games and shooters will have plenty of both in Zombie HQ.

What’s it like? Try Zombieville USA and Plants vs. Zombies for more games about taking down the undead.
