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.
