New Year, New You, New Productivity Apps

Happy New Year! Studies find that over 85% of us fail at our New Years Resolutions come February 1st but let’s make 2016 the year that we change that. A huge part of keeping our New Years Resolutions has to do with organization, realistic goal setting, and productivity. Let your smartphone help you.

Here are our best apps to help you keep your resolutions:

Dragon Dictation– Looking to improve your time management in 2016? This awesome app allows you to save time by quickly transcribing what you say into a note, email draft, or tweet. Not only is the app a time-saver, the accuracy of the dictation is awesome. Drafting your emails for work the next day while meal prepping for the entire family has never been easier.

HabitRPGMaking time to achieve your resolutions shouldn’t be a bore. Make it fun with this app by turning your resolutions into a full-blown game at your fingertips. You heard that right! You earn points when you complete things on your to-do lists and advance in the game.

RE.minder– If you are someone that needs a little extra push—don’t stress. This is the best app for you. It sets an alarm that repeats each minute, hour, or day that you don’t complete the desired task.  Looking to improve your fitness and stick to it? Research finds that texting increases a desire to exercise. Get this app with your fitness buddy to share reminders via email.

TimefulThis free app helps us actually FIND the time to do the things that we want to do. The great thing about this app is that it takes into account what is already keeping you busy to ensure that you can form realistic habits in the New Year. By connecting your calendars, the app then suggests the best times for you to incorporate that new gym class or that new daily habit of drinking 8 cups of water a day.
