3 Apps that are keepers

Hello, hello!

Is this the second post in one week? Unbelievable!

Today I am going to share with you my 3 favourite Apps, at the moment. I have been using them for a while now, and I thought it’s time to share them with the world. I am currently an Android user but there are probably the same or similar Apps for iOS users, too. If you know the iOS ones, please leave us a comment down below, in order for the other readers to see! 🙂

Here we go:

1. Step Counter – Pedometer Free & Calorie Counter

Amazing app, I absolutely love it and it’s a part of my everyday life now. It is a very simple and light app, that counts your steps. There are many apps like this, however I prefer this one, because it does not use GPS to track your steps, but the built-in sensor of the phone. As a result, it consumes less battery and it works perfectly with the Location switched off. You can easily see graphs with your daily number of steps, calories burnt, distance walked, and time you’ve spent walking.

I truly believe that since I installed this app I became more self conscious about the time I spend sitting, and it has helped me realise the need for regular walking breaks. I think it’s an essential app, especially if you lead a predominantly sedentary lifestyle and you need to visualise the actual damage you do to your body by sitting the whole day. Must have!

2. Smart AudioBook Player

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I have always loved reading books. It’s so cozy to sit on the sofa, wrapped inside a warm blanket, with a cup of hot tea and a good book. However, reading has become more difficult during my everyday life, as I already have to read tons of books for all the upcoming exams. Thus, if I have some free time, I prefer to have a walk, workout or cook a healthy meal.

Audiobooks really gave me the chance to enjoy books again! Now, I can have a long walk in between my studying sessions, and at the same time enjoy listening to a good book. I am already finishing the second one now and I can safely say that: yes, that’s an absolute game changer for me!

3. Blue Light Filter – Night Mode

Great app if you are using your phone just before you sleep! It filters out blue light, which inhibits melatonin secretion, and makes the screen very soft and gentle to the eyes. I have easily programmed the app to automatically activate from 23.30 till 7:00 in the morning (you can switch it on/off any time, of course), and it really makes a difference. I highly recommend that you try it out, at least for a couple of days, and see if it works for you.

So, that was it for this post: my 3 favourite apps at the moment!

Which ones are your favourite? Let me know in the comments below! 😀
