You can do way more than text and browse Facebook on your iPhones — you can use them to order dinner, park your car, and even do your laundry.

That's all thanks to the magic of apps, which will take care of all those everyday chores you just hate to deal with.

Check out our favorites free apps that will start adding hours to your day.

Luxe (iTunes and Google Play) brings you valet parking wherever you're going.

When you don't feel like cooking or grocery shopping


Munchery (iTunes and Google Play) does most of the work for you, delivering chilled chef-made meals you just have to heat up.

When the thought of going to Costco stresses you out


Instacart (iTunes and Google Play) will deliver and also lets you order from multiple stores at once.
