If you want an improved experience for your contacts application, the first app on the list is Simpler Contacts Pro. You can save a nice chunk of change here, because the app is normally $4.99. The app will merge all duplicate listings, backup your contacts with a single tap and allow you to quickly search for a particular name. Normally $1.99, Cut The Buttons is free for a limited time. Like the title suggests, this is a game that has you handling a virtual scissor to cut buttons. You keep cutting until you miss three scraps of material that contain a button.

The app will also recommend a healthy weight based on your profile. If you're looking for a new weather app, Blue Sky Weather might end your search. Usually 99 cents, the app will give you the current weather conditions, forecasts, and if rain is coming to your area you can arrange to receive an alert on your Apple Watch.
