“New Year, New Me.”
Feel like you kickstarted the year with lots of new ideas, only to realise that it is not that much of a difference as compared to last year? That the resolutions you made are lying precariously close to the edge of the rug, soon to be swept under?
Wait! Before you do, maybe the problem is not about the resolutions, but the way they are being pursued. Perhaps it is time to try a new method. Maybe it is easier to allow subtle changes seep into your lifestyle. Or possibly, it is time to let applications help to frame your lifestyle.
Sometimes, a little help a day will go a long way! Here are 3 apps that you can just install and leave running. Using technology such as geo-targeting and machine learning, they will help you manage your life a little better. Welcome to 2018 indeed.
Life Cycle is an application that uses location-based tracking to help you find out what did you do in your life. Split into many different categories, the app will help you to record what are the activities that you have done through the day, week and record them in a chart format for aesthetic ease and pleasure.
What I adore most about the app is the minimised effort needed to track your activities. For increased accuracy, you get to edit the activities into customised categories after you review them. This process allows me to think back to what I did throughout the day, so I have a better knowledge of where my time has
spirited sprinted away. With a better knowledge, this helps me with my control of my time.
Tink is an application that many Swedes are already using. It connects all your bank accounts and cards in one place. This helps with giving you an overview of your finances through automatically categorising and analysing your income and expenses.
I love this app because it connects my card to the application seamlessly. Now, I’m happy to be waving goodbye to the days where I have to log my own expenses religiously via paper receipts!
Bringing bite-sized news to a whole new level – Omni presents the summary of several articles so briefly such that you don’t even have to scroll the page. Omni prides itself on its objectivity of the summary, with the possibility to read more at the end. You get to select the type and category of news you want to read, and this helps to personalise your news feed.
Apart from Omni, there is also Omni Ekonomi for those more inclined to the changes in economy and other trends. The app has been named Sweden’s best news app in both 2015 and in 2016.
There are abundant apps out there that will be helpful in the kickstart of your goals. But for now, here are three Swedish apps for an app-ic start of 2018!
