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.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
