“Appy” New Year: 5 Apps to Help You Stick to Your New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions are notoriously hard to stick to, but with a little help from our favorite gadgets, this year can be different! This year you’ll actually follow through! From losing weight to being responsible with your finances, these apps will help make your 2013 resolutions your most successful yet!

Lose it!

One of the most common and hardest-to-keep resolutions to keep is to lose weight. After the holidays, everyone feels a little more “like a bowl full of jelly,” and it’s natural to want to slim down, but it’s also natural to want to take a nap instead of go to the gym. Lose it tracks both diet and exercise, which makes it one of the best apps out there.


Hoping to get better with money management in 2013? This personal finance app is a great option. It notes the incoming and outgoing numbers in all of your various bank accounts, credit cards, and bills. Best of all, the app itself is free!


If you’re hoping to learn how to do something new this year, Snapguide is a great option. The app has a beautiful interface, and lets its users create and share “how-to” guides, which creates a great peer-to-peer community. None of the guides go too far in-depth, so if you’re hoping to become an expert, this app probably isn’t for you. However, it’s a great place start discovering your new hobby!

National Geographic Traveler Magazine

New Year’s resolutions don’t have to be so boring and responsible! People who want to travel more this year will love this gorgeous traveler’s paradise. The app includes maps, photo galleries, and even 360-degree views of popular historic sites. There’s also a version available for iPads, which is perfect to view all those beautiful photos.


Organization is another popular resolution for the New Year. If getting your ducks in a row has always been difficult for you, LifeTopix helps manage your calendars, to-do lists, agendas, travel plans, event details…you name it! One of the best parts of this organization app is that it can sync across numerous different gadgets and will easily allow you to share information with friends and family members.
