12 Steps AA Companion
The long time popular Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) support group has come up with an app so that recoveries can access their help from anywhere. Both iPhone and Android users can download the app and use its features which include a running sobriety calculator, all of "The Big Book" text, allows users to send and share uplifting messages, and even incorporates the use of social media.

AlcoDroid Alcohol Tracker
Here's one only available on Android systems. It's an alcohol consumption tracker that lets users count the drinks they've had that day, week, or month. Someone attempting complete sobriety may not find this very useful, but those who are ready to drink can keep track of their blood alcohol level using the calculator tool. This app helps hold you accountable via social apps or email. It's just one of several different alcohol tracking apps.
My Daily Journal
Writing is often one of the most powerful tools a person can have in any recovery program and this iPhone app allows users the freedom to journal from any location, and even add photos or share entries when they wish. They can write about what triggers usage, any emotions they have before, during or after cravings, and anything they need to get off their chest. Entries can be password protected so private thoughts and emotions are kept safe.
