It’s that time of the year, when you resolve to be a better person in 2010. There’s an app for that. Heh. Here are some of my favorite New Year’s Resolution apps for the iPhone:
Get up earlier:
Alarm Clock Free (iHandySoft Inc.) — Alarm Clock Free turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a beautiful digital clock and alarm clock for free! (If you enjoy Alarm Clock Free, there is a paid version with more features: set your own song or playlist as alarm, more colorful themes, built-in flashlight.)
Keep in touch:
TweetDeck for iPhone (TweetDeck) — If you use Twitter, I really recommend TweetDeck as your desktop Twitter app and as your iPhone Twitter app. TweetDeck shows you everything you want to see at once, so you can stay organized and up to date no matter where you are.
Facebook (Facebook) — Facebook for iPhone makes it easy to stay connected and share information with friends. Use your iPhone to start a conversation with Facebook Chat, check your friends’ latest photos and status updates, look up a phone number, or upload your own mobile photos to Facebook while on the go.
Bump (Bump Technologies LLC) — Bump makes swapping contact information and photos as simple as bumping two phones together. Contact information is saved directly into your address book, and photos are saved directly into your camera roll. Perfect for exchanging virtual business cards of just exchanging information with friends.
Manage money better:
Mint.com Personal Finance (Mint.com) — Track, budget and manage your money on-the-go. Simply sign up for an account on Mint.com, add your online banking accounts, and access your personal finances anywhere. Mint.com automatically syncs with all your online banking accounts to get your balances and transactions.
Amazon Mobile (Amazon.com) — Don’t impulse buy! The Amazon Mobile app allows iPhone and iPod touch owners to very quickly search, shop, compare prices, read reviews, and make purchases on Amazon.com. It also includes a new experimental feature called Amazon Remembers that allows you to use the camera on your iPhone to create a visual list of things you want to remember while out-and-about. If the item you want to remember is a product, Amazon Remembers will even try to find a product similar to your photo for sale on the web.
Get in shape:
NB TotalFit (MapMyFitness) — NB Total Fit uses the built-in GPS technology from your iPhone 3G to help you achieve your fitness goals. Features include: real-time tracking with distance, time, pace, and speed display; real-time map display; record photos along your route with the iPhone’s camera; voice feedback with distance, pace, and speed options; sync with your Twitter account to automatically post your runs; syncronization with your training log and routes on MapMyRun.com.
C25K (Couch to 5k) (Alex Stankovic) — This one’s $1.99 whereas the others I’ve listed are free, but I think it’s worth it. Start running and get in shape with the most popular beginner’s running plan. Couch to 5k has been helping thousands of people ease into running. This app gives you audio prompts every time you need to change from running to walking according to the C25K plan. You can listen to your music and enjoy your workout without constantly looking at your stopwatch.
Hundred PushUps (SoftwareX) — This is the official, original, and sanctioned iPhone app of the Hundred Pushups program. The app tells you how many sets to do based on what day you’re on and records your progress. Again, it’s $1.99 but I think it’s worth it if you’re serious about getting up to 100 push-ups.
That’s it from me. What are your favorite New Year’s Resolutions apps? Share in the comments!
