I treated myself to a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, largely in part because my little one confiscated my Kindle Fire. I immediately hit the Google Play Store and downloaded some new apps. I ended up downloading quite a few but two of them get a daily workout. Here are two apps that I've been using consistently and have fallen in love with: Evernote. Before Evernote came along, I had loads of links I wanted to refer to later but then couldn’t find, passwords I couldn’t remember and a slew of Post-Its with scribbed information. Can anyone relate? Enter Evernote, the beauty of an app that keeps everything I need in one handy place. What a timesaver! I also use Evernote to plan blog posts. When I come up with an idea, I put it in Evernote so I don't forget.
Noom. I struggle with weight issues and I made the decision recently to tackle it once and for all. But I need proof that I am on the right track and I don’t like to do meetings. After a search on Google Play, I came across Noom.
What I love most about Noom is the logging of meals. I can plan my meals for a whole day and know my calorie intake. Another nifty feature is the color coding of foods: red, yellow and green. You want more green foods as they promote the most weight loss. Red foods should be eaten in moderation. I use a pedometer to track my steps and I enter them into Noom at the end of the day. By tracking my activity and meals, I’ve lost 12 pounds in one month! Yay, me!
Do you have a favorite app? I’m looking to add more so feel free to share your favorites in the comments.
