Never get lost looking for a bathroom or a water fountain again! TakeABreak lets you quickly find nearby public restrooms and drinking water fountains close to you. The app is good for hikers, bikers and urban dwellers alike! You can also choose to find nearby restaurants, but you may have to be a consumer of a store or restaurant in order to use the amenities.
The app queries the massive openstreetmap.org database for data, so anyone can add and make edits to the database. OpenStreetMap (OSM) is an open project to create a freely available map, a bit like the Wikipedia of maps. However, the database is not yet complete, and the usefulness of this app depends a lot on the completeness of the OSM database around you.
Generally, OSM has more data in European cities than elsewhere. If you know some locations that's missing on the map, you're more than welcome to add them to the global OpenStreetMap database.
Notable allows you to create notification reminders on the go. Need to remind yourself of something to do? Just open the app, type in a short message, and create the note! It's that easy! You can see your reminders and notes straight from your notification area. Never forget to do something again!
Notable is designed with speed and simplicity in mind. No need to go back to home screen and launch the app to create a reminder, just open the notifications, click the shortcut, and create away! Best of all, Notable runs in an overlay so you don't need to quit what you are doing beforehand. Notify is also ad-free and lightweight on your phone.
Want to wake up refreshed? Every time you sleep, you enter into a series of sleep cycles that last for around 90 minutes, and waking up during one of the cycles will make you feel groggy and exhausted.
SleepyTime is an app designed to help you wake up in-between sleep cycles and allows you to start the day with a clear mind.

Morbid Death Clock is a calculator app that calculates life expectancy for a given person.
Lifestyle factors such as smoking, driving, and exercise can make the most impact on your life expectancy. Using statistics that are matched to your profile, it is possible to estimate a very rough approximation of your expected life span. Of course, this is in no way medical advice and should be used for entertainment purposes only.
This app detects nearby electromagnetic fields using the phone's built-in magnetometer/compass. Depending on your phone, you can use it to detect metals up to 15cm away, and magnets from far, far away! Note that household equipment like TVs, and computers or even your phone case can affect readings.
Also available on the BlackBerry App World.
WordLookup allows you to view word definitions easily as you browse the web, and when using apps. It's like the popular Google Chrome extension Google Dictionary, but for Android. Simply hold & select the word you wish to look up, share it with WordLookup and a small notification popup will show a few definitions for the word. It's that simple! No need to open another dictionary app! The little popup does not block you from browsing the web, as it is unobstructive and fades away after a short while.
