Lots of apps offer the ability to track and save workout data, but this one adds the ability to connect and share it with others. Sharing and following fitness achievements of friends, family, and even the pros gives you extra encouragement, motivation, and even a little competition.

3. Flickr

The purpose of Flickr is two-fold: to be the best photo management system out there and to easily share photos. Creating custom categories within your account makes it easy to organize photos and is essential for anyone taking thousands of photos.
