If you’re looking to refresh your slate of smartphone apps for the New Year, you’re in luck. We asked 15 CEOs in the Philadelphia region to tell us the apps they rely on the most. Whether you have a New Year’s resolution to enhance your productivity habits or exercise more, these Philly CEOs show there’s an app for that. Here’s what they’re using:

Judy Munroe, Munroe Creative Partners
AMTRAK app. To successfully live and work in two cities requires riding the rails all day long. So this means book, rebook and book again.

Venu Sangani
, Spruce Infotech Inc.
My top three apps on my smartphone: Outlook for my emails, LinkedIn app for my network and QuickBooks.

Douglas C Yearley Jr., Toll Brothers
7 minute workout

William Reddish, G2 Inc.
My most frequently used app is my business banking app, followed by my CNN app.

Megan Smith, Brownstone PR
Hands down, my most used app is Stitcher. When I’m not in meetings, I’m definitely at my desk (or in a cab) listening to podcasts!

Manik Arora, Arora Engineers Inc.
My favorite app is LinkedIn, not only for the professional network, but there seems to be a lot of great technical stories for Aviation and Transportation projects, something I am passionate about. Whatsapp, I use it for staying in touch with my 50 first cousins around the globe…yes, 50! I also like my TDAmeritrade app, being able to see my investments in real time, but that’s so boring.

Drew Polin, OpDecision
If you don’t count email, I probably use Any.Do the most. It helps me keep all my tasks organized and I really love the satisfaction of crossing off a completed item.

Kate Shields, Vault Communications
Waze. I’m always driving to and from client appointments, and I love Waze’s creative shortcuts. Bonus? I can get those shortcuts in a variety of voices, from Dateline’s Keith Morrison to Santa Claus.

Eric Shannon, Big Barker
Downcast, my preferred podcast app. I listen to tons of podcasts and spend a lot of time walking around with my dog. I like Downcast because it lets me listen at two times the speed.

Matthew Abraham, Westchester Environmental LLC
The most common app that I use on my smartphone is my calendar.

Dennis Glass, Lincoln National Corp.

Denise M. Morrison, Campbell Soup CO.
I use the Weather app the most. I love to travel and check the weather where my kids are too.

Alan B. Miller, Universal Health Services
My favorite mobile app is the CNN Headline News app. I use it to stay on top of global markets, US business news, and of course, news across the healthcare sector.

Yasmine Mustafa, ROAR for Good
Outside of email and social, Reddit is my most used mobile app to stay on top of the latest tech, news and feel good stories.
