LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- There are hundreds of new apps coming out every month.  But who really has time to go through them all?

Rich DeMuro of The Tech Report is trying them out for you.  In today's report, he shares his top picks.  In this report, he's got an app that makes it easy to split your bill with friend in restaurants, a  way to keep your photo album safe from prying eyes and more.

It's probably happened to you.  You pass your phone to someone to show them a photo and they keep on swiping.

Swipe Block stops that from happening, which means your friend can only see the photos you want them to see.  It's priced at only .99 cents for IOS and the Android.

Have an active toddler?  Keep them busy with Kidsstudio.  The iPad app was created by a new dad unimpressed with the boring designs of other kids apps.

Kidstudio is four apps in one.  Draw, practice shapes, make music and one feature even encourages your kid to get  outside.  The price is $2.

Going to dinner with friends is fun, but splitting up the bill isn't.  Tab makes it as simple as snapping a photo.

Just take a photo of the bill and Tab asks you who ate what.  Each friend gets a custom tally including tax and tip.  The app is free for IOS and Android.

Once you're all split up, use Square Cash to pay back your friend who plunked down their card.  It's so simple.  Just send an e-mail to your friend how much they owe you in the subject line and

Square Cash will gather both of your debit card numbers.  The money will transfer accounts within two days.  The service is totally free up to $2,500 a week.
