We're halfway into 2010, which means we only have six measly months left to meet our lofty goals for the year and welcome next year smarter, hotter, and happier than ever before. But don't let the ticking clock stress you out! Instead, take stock whether you've been keeping up with your resolutions and use this mid-mark month to get back on track. Here are some handy apps that can help you push on through and make this the best year ever.

The free app is straightforward and simple to use. Use it to perform Craigslist searches straight from your phone, swipe left or right to browse through listings, and save listings or searches. You can even email them to friends. Anyone who's ever looked for an apartment in a saturated market will tell you that a 24/7 tie to Craigslist is a must — this app is a great way to stay in the loop!
You can make payments and transfer money on your iPhone with the help of Square and your debit or credit card, but now with PayPal's new app, you don't even need that. Just by bumping your phones together, you can transfer money from one PayPal account to the other — no bank, check, computer, or credit card required.
Besides appearance, OpenHome supports other tweaks like widgets, auto-rotate, and keyboard enhancements. The app is free from the Andorid Market; just search for "Open Home" to get the app and view all available themes.
It's a lot like the iPhone translation app I wrote about recently, and is just as awesome for travel, whether you need to find the bathroom or just introduce yourself to someone new. Talk To Me is free, and available in the Android Market.
I told you about Snaptell last year, an iPhone app that lets you read reviews and comparison shop by snapping a pic of a book, DVD, CD, or video game cover. It works great, but a new Google Android app is taking things a step farther. Called Google Shopper, you can take a quick photo of barcodes, DVD cases, video games, and the like or just say what you're looking for to activate a voice search in case there's no barcode available. You'll instantly get reviews and prices so you can make a wise shopping decision.
