You can have a little fun during Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Bliss HD+. This app is a Candy Crush-style puzzle game that helps raise money for breast cancer. Babble.com reports that you can choose to either donate 50% of the app’s purchase price or convert you score into donations that will go towards The Beautiful Day, a non-profit organization that provides breast cancer awareness and education for young women.

Your Man Reminder app

If you have difficulty remembering when you need to give yourself a breast exam, maybe the attractive gentlemen will help  jog your memory! Set a reminder in the Your Man Reminder app (and choose your man!), and then the man you choose will pop up on your screen to remind you that it’s that time of the month. You can also send a man-o-gram to your friends that might also need reminding. In addition to men, the app features helpful information about self breast exams.
