This post rounds up the 9 most innovative mobile apps which are benefiting consumers with new levels of convenience, value and functionality.

1. Be My Eyes

Named as a Top 10 Android App of the Year by New York Times, Assistant is the highest rated speaking personal assistant for your smartphone.

3. Lock Me Out

Want to relish some device-free, distraction-free time? Download the Lock Me Out app which locks you out of your device for a specified time period. This is how it works – first you set a PIN which’ll unlock your device after the lockout period. Once locked, the app will change this PIN to some random number through the lockout period and change it back to original once the lockout period is over.

Note: You can still make emergency calls, use the camera and other lock screen widgets while you’re locked out.
