App Update

As a self-confessed app addict, I figured I would update my list with what I’ve discovered since last posting about my favorite apps

  1. Fresh Air

Like Dark Sky for weather, but free. And with pretty visuals.

 

2. Goals


AlsoĀ free,Ā easyĀ wayĀ toĀ visualizeĀ habitsĀ thatĀ youĀ wantĀ toĀ buildĀ andĀ itĀ hasĀ aĀ reminderĀ featureĀ thatĀ youĀ canĀ setĀ forĀ aĀ certainĀ timeĀ ofĀ day.Ā I’veĀ triedĀ aĀ fewĀ similarĀ appsĀ butĀ thisĀ oneĀ isĀ myĀ favoriteĀ becauseĀ it’sĀ soĀ intuitive.Ā I’mĀ currentlyĀ usingĀ itĀ toĀ rememberĀ toĀ logĀ atĀ leastĀ 1Ā mileĀ on StravaĀ perĀ dayĀ inĀ 2017Ā (soĀ farĀ soĀ good!)

 

3. Achievemint


Better than free, it actually pays you to exercise. It’s just $10 per 10,000 points, but you can sync it to apps like Strava and Apple Health, and then go about your usual business. And yes I do have a referral link if you want to try it.

 

 

 

 

4.Ā ByCycling

 

ThisĀ newĀ appĀ isĀ justĀ releasedĀ fromĀ betaĀ testing,Ā andĀ automaticallyĀ detectsĀ yourĀ ridesĀ andĀ countsĀ upĀ mileageĀ forĀ you (as long as wifi is enabled). ItĀ claimsĀ toĀ useĀ upĀ veryĀ littleĀ batteryĀ whileĀ runningĀ inĀ theĀ background,Ā andĀ soĀ farĀ thisĀ seemsĀ toĀ beĀ trueĀ forĀ me.Ā IĀ don’tĀ StravaĀ everyĀ ride,Ā butĀ it’sĀ funĀ toĀ seeĀ howĀ manyĀ milesĀ rackĀ upĀ justĀ commutingĀ back and forth. It appears to be pretty accurate too and doesn’t pick up walking or driving as far as I can tell. If you can encourage your employer to sign up, you can put the incentive feature to use as well!
