With a baby on the way, beating Candy Crush Saga probably isn't the most important thing on your mind—or your phone. Here are our favorite programs for moms-in-the-making.

For the Nutrition Conscious (or Clueless)

For the Absentminded

MYLABORBAGS APP

MYLABORBAGSPrep for D-day by creating hospital-bag checklists that you can fill with default items, including the oft-forgotten warm socks, plus your own add-ins. And since Daddy needs a bag, too, email him a rundown while you're at it.

PIMP MY ULTRASOUND APP

PIMP MY ULTRASOUNDThe name alone should make you LOL, but wait 'til you tinker with these frames and accessories. A screen grab of your baby wearing a baseball cap and under a banner announcing "It's a girl!" might do the trick.
