6 apps to help you be generally better at life

Remember more, develop good habits, have more focus, and stay informed with these apps.

Everyone has days where they feel like they’re organised, productive and winning at  life. Get that feeling more often with these handy apps, designed to help you remember more, concentrate better, and make the most of your time.

Remember the milk

(Android, iOS)

Do you often feel like you’ve just got too many things to remember? Are normal reminders in your phone not cutting it for you? Do you find yourself wishing that you could have multiple lists of to-dos? If you’re the kind of person whose tasks needs subtasks, labels, and six different ways to remind you, Remember the Milk is the app for you.

HabitHub

(Android, iOS coming soon)

“Successful people are simply those with successful habits” once mused Brian Tracy, and we all know how hard it is to start a successful habit. If you’ve got a habit you would like to adopt, just pop it into HabitHub and start marking off a streak of days where you perform that activity. Once you can see a record of how many days you’ve ticked off, you won’t want to break the chain. You can set reminders, assign categories, and even access a bunch of data and graphs to show how well-developed your habits are.

Pocket

(Android, iOS)

If you’re a big reader, or just an average internet user, you’ve probably got a whole bunch of articles open in browser tabs that you’re saving for later. More often than not, these articles end up going unread, but with Pocket you’ll never have to have this problem again.

Pocket saves articles from your phone or desktop browser to the app, putting them into an easy-to-read format that can be read offline. This is especially useful if you’ve got a long commute on the train or bus and have to deal with reception “dead spots”.

Forest

(Android, iOS)

Forest is a new approach to productivity and focus that might appeal to lovers of games like Farmville. Instead of blocking sites to help you focus, Forest plants a virtual “tree” for you. The longer you can concentrate for without visiting a site on your blacklist, the bigger the tree gets. When your is fully grown, it gets placed in your own digital forest, giving you a visual representation of your productivity. It’s a simple, yet effective way to reward concentration, as well as keep you present and off your phone.

Family Locator

(Android, iOS)

Got a few family members to keep track of? Family Locator lets you keep track of everyone close to you, as long as they’ve got the app too. It can be great for keeping track of your kids, but there’s plenty of other  useful features. Want to let your partner know when you’ll be home for dinner? You can set up a notification for when you pass certain GPS coordinates on your commute home. Family Locator can also detect when someone is driving, and if there’s an unexpected stop – great for peace of mind if you’ve got inexperienced or older drivers in your family.

Medibank Mobile App

(Android, iOS)

If you’re a Medibank member, we think our app is pretty useful, too. The Medibank Mobile App makes it easy to manage your policy, keep on top of your annual limits and how much you’ve used, change your details, or make a claim. You can also find your closest member’s choice provider for your extras policy. Learn more about it here.
