5 Best iPhone Apps Of This Fall

5 Best iPhone Apps Of This Fall
Awesome new apps for iPhone are getting released all the time. There are so many of them that it is virtually impossible to keep track of all the new arrivals, even if you concentrate on a few fields that are vital for you. That is why we’ve prepared this list of 5 apps you absolutely must check out this Fall if you want to improve your iPhone experience (and enhance your creativity into the bargain).

1. Ad Blocker by Photo Master Labs

    While desktop owners have mostly solved the problem of annoying ads long ago, Safari users weren’t that lucky. The issue of traffic is a much more important one for mobiles to begin with. This Ad Blocker is an app that really blocks all ads on iPhone – literally. Everything that was annoying you and eating up your precious traffic: awful screen grabbing banners, redirects to auto-playing videos, scripts, popups – all this is gone once you’ve installed this app. In addition to saving traffic and your nerve cells, it greatly improves the overall speed of surfing, makes video watching smoother, and makes web experience more pleasant and secure in general. All blacklists are updated regularly, so you may be sure you stay advert-less for as long as you use it.

    2. Selfie Camera by Filterra, Inc.

      Selfie Camera is certainly one of the best apps for selfie lovers, as it was designed specifically with them in mind. It is supposed to be used with a selfie stick, removing the need for awkward arm stretching. Built-in timers, an ability to take numerous snaps in one go, several dozens of filters aimed at giving your portraits that stylish and cool look you’ve always wanted – everything is packed in one little app. The best thing of all is this app is entirely free.

      3. IceCream by I Love IceCream Ltd.

      Another excellent app for those who love to make a lot of photos and regularly run out of place to keep them all. Developed by an MIT graduate who used to run into similar problems with his own iPhone, this clever little app uses algorithms of its own to clean up space on your iPhone for 250, 1,000 or 2,500 additional photos in just a couple of quick taps. What is especially attractive about it is that it backs up smaller portions of your data at a time while almost immediately providing you with additional space, rather than doing it in one big bulk like iCloud.

      4. Snap Palette by Peter Gilmour

      Snap Palette is exactly what it says on the tin. From now on you can simply snap a picture of a scene you like and create an entire palette of colors from it. The app will automatically identify the color HEX codes and present you with a palette you can freely use for whatever end you like. It can be of great help for any artist, designer, or photographer, especially during the Fall, when the world is ablaze with reds and yellows.

      5. Overcast by Overcast Radio, LLC

        Good news for all podcast lovers – Overcast has already been one of the best apps for listening to them. Now, with the latest update, it is free. In addition to that, you can now stream an episode without downloading it, get recommendations from real people via different sources (e.g. Twitter), and use chapters for navigation.

        Conclusion

        Finding apps that ideally suit you may be a difficult task, especially if you don’t know for sure what you are looking for. Make sure to check these apps out and share your own opinions.

        If you liked this post, go ahead and download the newest apps of this Fall. Good luck!

        7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

        7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

        Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

        Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

        Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

        So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

        Joe’s Goals

          Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

          Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

          Daytum

            Daytum

            is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

            Advertising

            Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

            Excel or Numbers

              If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

              What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

              Evernote

              Advertising

                I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

                Evernote is free with a premium version available.

                Access or Bento

                  If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

                  Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

                  You can check out Access and the Office Suite here and Bento here.

                  Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

                  All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

                  Conclusion

                  I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

                  What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
