ZocDoc,  BugMe!, Dr K’s Breast Checker

ZocDoc takes much of the hassle out of scheduling a doctor’s appointment. You just plug in your ZIP code, insurance carrier, and the type of specialist you’re seeking; this free app will spit out your local options, including the doctors’ upcoming schedule openings. (Android, iOS, and BlackBerry)

BugMe! is “a scatterbrain’s best friend.” Enter a to-do note into your phone and it’ll be kept on a virtual corkboard. Need to remember that doctor’s appointment? When you review entries, you can move that one to your phone’s home screen—“so you can’t make a call or send a text without seeing it first.” ($2, Android and iOS; $3, BlackBerry)

Dr K’s Breast Checker reminds women each month to conduct a self-exam for breast cancer, and prods the user daily if she keeps hitting its “snooze” button. (Free, iOS only)
