The best apps for your new year resolutions

New year. New you. That’s the idea, right? But it can be hard to stick to those resolutions made in the haze of Christmas. So here are a few apps that will ensure you stay on track, focusing on the 3 F’s (finance, Fitness and Finding love).

Keeping track of the pennies

If 2021’s going to be the year you conquer your finances, there are a few handy apps that can help you on your way.

Mint is a free app designed for budgeting – input all your financial info to see where you can save money. With an intuitive interface and customisable tools, it’s a great choice for finance management.

But if you’re looking for a bit more from an app, Quicken is your own pocket accountant. As well as tracking your transactions, you can plan for retirement and even track the value of your property. It does however require an annual subscription starting at around £26.

From flab to fit

After a year of isolation it’s not surprising some of us have piled on a few pounds. No judgement here. But if you want to get in shape in 2021, there are some useful apps to help with both diet and exercise.

The Fitbit app is one of the most popular step trackers on the market. But don’t worry you don’t need anything but your phone to make good use of it. Track your steps, distance, calories burned, sleep habits, heart rate and weight.

What you eat is as important as the exercise you do. MyFitness Pal lets you input food items to track the calories you’ve ingested. As well as managing your meals, it can also be paired with other devices like your Fitbit to help you reach your goals.

Finding love

2020 hasn’t been the best year for dating. But have no fear, we’ve got some top dating apps that’ll help you find new friends (or maybe more). And even if you can’t meet up till later in the year, you can get the conversations going now.

For a traditional online approach OKCupid, POF (Plenty of Fish) and Match are a great place to start in your search for that special someone. Or, if you just want to have a browse of what’s out there, Tinder , Grindr and SCISSR are a great way to meet new people – then whatever happens next is up to you.

Whatever your new year goals are for 2021, there’s always an app to help you on your way. And if you find your resolutions are taking their toll on your mobile data, why not upgrade to an Unlimited SIM from SMARTY. Then they’ll be nothing to stand in your way.

Good luck.
