1 Essential App for Every Day of The Week

1 Essential App for Every Day of The Week

We all need that little extra something now and again to give our day a boost, and with over 2.5 million apps available on the App Store alone, we really are spoiled for choice when it comes to improving our day the techie way. We’ve compiled a list of apps for every day of the week. Whether you struggle with focus, productivity or Saturday morning avocado withdrawals, these apps will help you through no matter how far away the weekend.

Monday

For some, Monday is a day for fresh starts, a new mindset, and another to-do list to smash. It really doesn’t matter that this productivity only lasts until 2pm. For others, Mondays are a dread, a bore, and by far―the worst day of the week. For those of you who struggle to motivate yourselves at 9am on a Monday morning, Wunderlist (free) is the app for you.

A to-do list and project organiser in one, Wunderlist provides tasks reminders, notes, and keeps your to-do list up to date and synchronised across all devices. It is simple to use so even those who have been hit hard with Monday morning grogginess can begin organising with ease. The premium feature includes file uploads, task delegation and unlimited subtasks, but we are happy with the free version (there’s only so much our Monday morning brains can endure).

Tuesday

Congratulations for making it through Monday. Your reward? Tuesday, the second worst day of the week.

Yes, Monday might be over, but last weekend is now a distant memory and there’s still 3 whole days to endure until Friday

If there’s ever a day where a spot of retail therapy is needed, it’s the ever-mundane Tuesday. Combat your bad mood and London’s high prices in one with Vouchercloud (free) ―the app that ensures you can treat yourself without having to live off of porridge and pasta until payday.

Vouchercloud offers great discounts for a huge number of brands, ranging from Topshop to B&Q to Pizza Express. Whether it’s a Tuesday evening pint, pizza, or…holiday, Vouchercloud is an easy way to spend money you don’t have but still feel good about it.

Wednesday

By Wednesday, the midweek slump is starting to take hold. Your productivity reserves are starting to dwindle and it’s hard to focus when the weekend is beginning to appear on the horizon. For days like these, Calm (free) is our go-to. It’s a mindfulness meditation app which has the potential to not only turn your day around, but also your week. A huge number of companies are now encouraging mindfulness meditation, due to the huge number of benefits to both mental and physical health.

Calm is free to download and beautifully designed. It includes 7 days of guided meditation and for £7.99 a month, users can unlock a whole host of other meditations focusing on other areas of life, whether it’s concentration, gratitude, happiness, or deep sleep. These short, guided meditations can be done at any time of the day.

The app also includes relaxing sounds such as fire crackling, waves breaking onto a beach or the sound of the pouring rain. It’s perfect for soothing a sore head on a stressful day.

Thursday

It’s never too early to start planning the weekend. Our favourite app to ensure we experience maximum fun with minimum crowds is Dojo (free). Dojo’s motto is that if it’s worth going to, they will know about it. Their researchers handpick the best things to do, see, eat and drink throughout the week, and believe us when we say, the list is endless. Dojo also includes recommendations for things you wouldn’t even think about, such as ‘5 Curated Vintage Shops’ and ‘Date Friendly Food Joints’.

Your days of Netflix and Chill-in are over.

Friday

So Friday night has arrived and the drinks are flowing, perhaps a little too easily. For this, we give you DrinkCoach (free), one of The Observer’s Top 10 Health Apps. The app allows you to track your drinking over time, set goals, see how many calories you’re consuming in alcohol and how much you are spending. Whilst we all enjoy a night out, it’s easy to overdo it, and with DrinkCoach you are far better equipped to stay on top of your alcohol consumption. Yes, it may seem boring, but you’ll be thanking us in the morning!

Saturday

Saturday mornings can be filled with productivity, spring cleans and gentle jogs around the local park, or (if you ignored our app for Friday) they can be an emblem of regret, headaches, and the distant taste of Sambuca. Whatever your physical state on a Saturday morning, I’m sure we can all agree that sometimes all we really need is a decent brunch.

Deliveroo (free) delivers restaurant food, and it delivers it fast. Have a look at their best of London breakfasts and enjoy your Saturday how it’s meant to be enjoyed, with overpriced and pretentious avocado on toast.

Sunday

Sunday mornings are made for coffee and catch ups, and if you’re struggling to find a good coffee shop then look no further than London Coffee Network (free). Supporting local, independent coffee shops that sell high quality coffee in a great environment. London Coffee Network also rewards users with points depending on how much they spend in store. The app claims to be a ‘digital loyalty card for drinking better coffee’ and lists over 200 coffee shops. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to your Sunday morning caffeine fix.
