App Review!

Just for something completely different, we’re going to do a little post on some productivity apps that are absolutely wonderful to get your mind in the right place when you need it to be.
Forest: $2.99

The first one that we’re going to cover is one of our favourites.

How it works

The main aim is to prevent you from using your phone or any mobile device for a set duration of time, but gives you the motivation to do so in the form of planting virtual trees. If you exit the app while your trees are growing, they’ll die.

What we think
Forest is definitely up there to be our favourite.

It makes for a good competition to see how long you can go and what you can unlock.
The best feature and why we love the app so much is because if you plant enough virtual trees, you plant a tree in real life with the coins that you collect.

Forest has a rating of 4.8/5. We give a 4.9.

Moment – Screen Time Tracker: Free – in app purchases (IAP)
The second one we checked out was Moment, and were pleasantly surprised…

How it works
This app simply tracks the amount of time that you spend on your phone, how often you pick it up, and teaches you how to reduce your screen time. It also includes so many helpful features.

What we thought

Moment absolutely blew us away as to how much time we were wasting on our phones playing games
and places like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.
Moment has a rating of 4.5/5. We rate it a 4.5 as well.

Productive – Habit Tracker: Free – (IAP)
Another great app that helps you to build a routine of good habits.

How it works
You’re able to set personal goals, track your progress and motivate yourself to keep going and achieving bigger and better things. Statistics help you to stay on track and although we didn’t go for the premium, it looks to be worth it.

What we thought
Sexy style, easy to use, and has heaps of features that help you to better every aspect of your life –definitely on par with the next app, although having different aspects.

Productive has a rating of 4.6/5. We rate it a 4.4.
