Our 10 Favourite Mobile Apps for Health, Productivity & Happiness

March 19, 2017

There are currently 2.2 million apps available in the apple app store, so before you go down the "rabbit hole" trying to find the most useful apps, we have listed below our CURRENT favourites that we use to aid us with our health, keep us working to our full potential and make us super-dooper happy!




1. Spotify

If you're anything like us, a long hard gym session REQUIRES a motivating playlist and that’s where Spotify comes in. Discover and create playlists to suit all types of workouts.

Cost: Free or Premium starting from $14.99 p/month

Available on: iOS & Android




2. Get Merry

Our favourite sister act, Emma & Carla Papas (aka the Merrymaker Sisters) have released their very own mobile app full of delicious & nutritious recipe to suit everyone. We can’t get enough of the Gaytime Cake recipe!

Cost: $4.49

Available on: iOS & Android




3. Headspace

This sin’t the first time we have mentioned this amazing app. Headspace is perfect for those looking to start a daily meditation practice…

Cost: Free or premium starting at $19.99 p/month

Available on: iOS & Android


4. Podcast App

We are ADDICTED to listening to podcast. Exclamation point. We have so many favourite podcasts that we are subscribed to, so we might have to create a post just on our favourite podcast shows - so you can get onto them too! But in the meantime scroll through some of the different categories and episodes to find something that suits your tastes.

Cost: Free

Available on: iOS




5. Duo Lingo

Fun fact: We have plans to travel to Italy at the end of the year, so to spruce up our Italian we are using the Duo Lingo app. Each lesson includes a variety of speaking, listening, translation, and multiple choice challenges. Also, research has proven that 34 hours of Duo Lingo study is equal to one semester of learning a language at university. Molto bene! 

Cost: Free

Available on: iOS & Android


6. AnyList

We use this app as our daily/weekly shopping list (personal and business). We find it to be much more productive than using paper and pen. Our favourite feature is that once you have crossed off your item, it will automatically save it for the next time you use it. And once the app is opened, it stays opened until you return to your home screen.

Cost: Free

Available on: iOS


7. Strava

This is our go-to activity tracker app for the days when we head out for a run, walk or bike ride. Follow your "besties" for some friendly competition to help keep you motivated.

Cost: Free

Available on: iOS & Android




8. Brit & Co.

This app melts our creative hearts! It’s full of classes and cool projects for the DIY enthusiast. Check out all their free content and for those seeking more, you can purchase specific classes too.

Cost: Free, in app purchases available

Available on: iOS & Android


9. Uber

After a couple of drinks in the city with friends (hello Friday knock off drinks), Uber is the only way we get home. Some of the things we love about the app and service are the ease of using the app itself, being able to see exactly who will be driving, how long they will take to arrive at your pick up location, and the fact that you don't have to worry about exchanging any money as the app just magically figures it all out for you. We love it!

Cost: Free, in app fees & surcharges apply based on travel time

Available on: iOS & Android




10. Instagram
