analyze.life – Live a Happier Healthier Life

With the multitude of tasks that we deal with on a daily basis, it’s no wonder that we are at our wit’s end by the end of the week. We sometimes look back and wonder what went wrong. What made our week so bad? Oftentimes, it ends up being a culmination of little things that set us off.

If you want to take control of those little things so they don’t build up into a bad week, you need to download analyze.life.

This app is easy to use and effortlessly helps you take note of your emotions as you feel them.

The download is for free with no pressures for in-app purchases. Full functionality is available to all, nothing is hidden.

What the app provides is a tool to help you journal and manage your moods. You can enter data on a daily basis, as you are feeling something, or just whenever.

analyze life app

The Track screen allows you to quickly rate your mood for the day. Choose the mood categories that capture your level of happiness, sadness, anger, confusion, depression. Levels would be like Great, Good, OK, So So, and more.

There is no need to get in there and start typing away. You can capture your mood throughout the day and let the app do the rest. It’s simple and easy.

Because you don’t have to elaborate on the mood, the app prevents any skewed data. If you had to reflect on a bad mood, you may not enter what you are really feeling and the app won’t be able to factor in accurate data.

What is really cool and unique about this app is that it not only records data on moods, it records data on anything that can affect your mood. This can be your quality of sleep, your nutrition, the workplace dynamics, and more.

All of these things can be recorded and reviewed in the app’s findings. This helps you find patterns in what makes you happy and what can bring you down.

If things are not going well at work, it is sometimes hard to see the workplace or folks you work with as the problem. This app helps reveal possible sources of tension, so you can work to remove them from your life and make small changes that can have big results.

I really couldn’t see anything lacking in analyze.life. I found it extremely easy to use and eye-opening. I would love it if I could print directly from the app, so I could compile my own physical journal if I wanted to.

Until then, I am going to make full use of this app, because it has revealed a lot about myself that I did not know. It has helped me put myself more in situations that provide positive energy and avoid scenarios that cause bad moods. Download analyze.life today and live better!

MedOClock Makes Taking Medicine Easier

It won’t make the pills go down any easier, but MedOClock is an app that keeps you organized about the medications you are on. You don’t have to be taking a plethora of medications or have to be old to use this app. This app is a simple and easy way to track what you are taking, so you have one place to go to reference the list and you don’t have to remember if you have taken a particular pill or not.

While the app is named MedOClock, you can easily use it to track medications that are short term, long term, vitamins, supplements, and anything else that you need help with.

The app doesn’t stop at medications. You can enter information about appointments you have scheduled and setup reminders. By the way, reminders can be set up for just about anything you have added in the app. This goes for medicines, vitamins, and even just drinking plenty of water.

Aptly named the Smart Pillbox, MedOClock takes the guesswork out of when to take your pills and whether or not you’ve taken them. The app will send gentle reminders for you to take your pills, and you can acknowledge taking them, so you know if you taken enough or if you are lacking for the day.

What I really liked about the app is that I can add others to my app, so that I can monitor and manage medications for someone else. This has come in handy for my son, who recently had to complete two series of antibiotics, each having different dosages and frequencies of administrations.

It is great to have as a reminder system while you are taking the medications, and as a history, so you know what you have taken, when, and for how long. It’s all in the app, so you can pull it up anytime a doctor or pharmacist has questions.

This helps you help your medical advisors provide you with optimal care.

Another great feature is the ability to keep emergency contact information in the app. This is of great use for elderly family members, who may not remember who to contact for help in an already stressful moment, or for younger ones.

I really couldn’t find much to complain about in this app. I myself use it to list and monitor all of my vitamins, as I currently don’t take too many medicines. What I would have liked is the ability to backup the information elsewhere so I know I will never lose it.

If you or someone you know needs help organizing their medicine cabinet, download MedOClock today. Taking medications is hassle enough – make it easier with an app that cares.

Crowd’s Feed – A New Social Media Platform

Crowd’s Feed is a kind of social networking app I would say, in its own unique way, that, it integrates the benefits of multiple apps into one platform. To be precise, it lets users who have common interests connect with each other through a common social media platform, that is Crowd’s Feed.  

For example, if you are a great fan of a particular app and would like to connect with people who are users of this app, just open that app and check if you can see a floating icon of the Crowd’s Feed app. If you can see it, then Voila, you have a community on Crowd’s Feed that uses this app and you can start interacting with them. 

When you open the app you will be taken to the welcome screen where you have just one option of “Login with Facebook.” Once logged in, you will be presented with the information that the app will have access to your public profile and email address on Facebook and that the app will not post to Facebook without your permission. This setting could be changed from within Facebook privacy setting I guess if you wish to have your Crowd’s feed posts sent to Facebook too. 

crowds-feed

Once you are in the app, you can see the menu icon with 3 horizontal lines on the top left corner of the screen. Tapping it opens “My posts” and “Icon settings.” 

“My posts” will list the contents that you and others have posted on Crowd’s feed and “Icon settings” will let you choose a position for the Crowd’s feed floating icon on app screen.  

If you see the Crowd’s feed icon when you open an app on your mobile device, it means that there is a community of users using this app.  You can tap on the icon to create content relevant to that app and all those who use that app. Posting the content will help other users on crowd feed with similar interests to see your content and to interact with you.  

To post content, tap on the edit tool on top right of the screen (a small pencil icon), and you can upload photo or video using camera app or from media that already exist in the phone’s gallery. Just give the post a title and some text and hit publish. This feed should now go to Crowd’s Feed and be visible to users who use that particular app. If any other user/s had posted content from the same app, you should be able to see that on the feed. 

  • Crowd’s Feed app lets the users interact with other users who have similar interests, through chat and hence facilitate them for a meet up.
  • The interface is very simple with nothing in terms of graphics and other stuff there but just a screen with a very simple menu.
  • This is a great way to engage with users who have interests similar to you or who use the same apps as you.
  • You can get to know new people, look through interesting content that other users have posted as these posts are solely dedicated to that particular app. 

Most of the apps that I wanted to connect with on my mobile had no content in them although they had a community. Also, not all apps have a Crowd’s Feed community and so this can leave a few users discouraged.

Reach Your Fitness Goals with Tabata HIIT. Interval Training

Tabata is a high intensity interval training that incorporates both fitness and weight loss. It is a very short workout that lasts for 4 minutes with a series of 8 rounds of 30 seconds each (20 seconds workout with 10 seconds of rest between each set). This training program saves time for people who are on a very busy schedule and want to reach their fitness goals at the same time. All you need to do is stick to a plan and the Tabata HIIT. Interval Training app will help you accomplish that.

Most people look for apps that have a very simple and neat interface that is easy to use. Tabata HIIT. Interval Training app is the go to app for these users as it has its own inbuilt training schedules that a user can follow or the user can create their own training schedule by adding exercises of their choice. It has a very personalized approach where it lets the user input their height, weight and choose or design training schedules that will calculate the calories that they will be able to burn using that specific schedule.

There is not much of anything to do in terms of installing or setting up this app. Once installed, it can be run and the basics set up straight away. Users who wish to follow the already set up training schedules like abs workout, butt and thigh, lower body, upper body, fat burning, ideal body can choose to do so and these are illustrated with pictures for new users to understand what they are and which part of their body they are working out for. There is also an area for creative users who would like to set up their own exercises and schedules. The user just inputs a title for their work out and adds favourite exercises to build up a workout schedule that fits them.

tabata hiit

Tabata HIIT. Interval Training is a nice little app with a friendly user interface. It gives the user flexibility between choosing inbuilt training plans and creating own training plans. The app has standard training plans that cover almost everyone’s needs which can still be customized based on user needs where a user can add or remove exercises. The beauty of these standard plans are that the user can understand what workouts need to be done to improve certain areas. Users can also do a combination of different plans available in the standard plans depending on what their goals are.

The best part is the calorie meter that calculates the amount of calories that one will burn during a workout session. Apart from the above, the gym timer helps keep the user on track so as to not miss the time of 20 seconds workout and 10 seconds rest. The transition between workout and rest sessions is accompanied by different music that the user can take advantage of, thereby not having to look at the stopwatch or the mobile screen.

Reminders keep the users on track so as to not miss out on a workout session and the “Schedule” section helps the user personalize their working schedule for different days of the week depending on their available free time. Users are kept motivated by keeping track of their detailed workout statistics that will let the user look at their progress and set achievable goals. There are a lot of exercises incorporated like, bicycle, bridges, burpees, backward lunges, crunches, forward lunges, high knees, jumping jack, left leg kickbacks, lying leg raises, mountain climber, narrow push-ups, regular push-ups, right leg kickbacks, side lunges, squat jumps, squats and wide push-ups. The demo is very useful on each exercise as it is very educative to users who are new to workout schedules.

This app can also be linked to the app “Sportsman PRO” which is an added advantage. The data can be backed up on Google drive, so the users need not worry about losing data relating to their workout progress in case of any mishaps.

There aren’t any visible features that could be considered as a negative, but more interactive features could be incorporated; for example, a short introductory animation or illustration that summarizes to the user, the Tabata HIIT training and how this app will help them achieve it with ease.

PersonalityMatch – Make and Maintain Connections that Work For You

So often we find ourselves wondering if we are in the right line of work. What is it that really makes us happy? For each individual, it’s a different thing. The hard part is figuring out what makes you tick, so you make the right career decisions.

PersonalityMatch is an app that can help with that. While it sounds like a dating app, it can be used for so many more areas of your life that just that.

This app opens your eyes to who you are and how you operate. Once you get that, almost anything is possible, because you know what makes you happy and what makes you angry. Now you have tools to try and place yourself in situations that promote success.

PersonalityMatch app is free to download, and has a few in-app purchases that give you deeper insight into your personality traits and how to use them:

  • Improve relationships using advice based on your findings
  • Get career advice from experts – how to deal with situations at work and whether or not you are in a career line that is right for you

PersonalityMatch app

After downloading the app, it will ask for some basic information. You will register with the app, which is necessary. You can register using your Facebook account, an email address, or WhatsApp. Once you complete registration, PersonalityMatch will ask you a series of questions. Most are a simple choice between two items. Some have several options to choose from. The key here is to choose quickly to get real results.

Once you complete the questionnaire, the app will churn away and spit out a report that identifies your personality type. Now, this is not just any old report. The app uses the knowhow of Briggs-Meyers and Carl Jung to pose questions that reveal your true nature. Your answers to these questions reveal your personality type.

Now, take your personality findings and delve deeper to see what careers work best for you. Oftentimes, we think we are good at something, but it takes all of our effort to achieve that success. In those cases, we are probably in the wrong job. Take your personality into consideration and you will find that you may have been missing out on work that you look forward to doing.

Invite a friend to have their personality assessed so you can compare each other’s. This is where the app becomes really useful, because you can use it to find out why you get along so well with someone, while you don’t with others. The app also goes so far as to help you in areas showing disconnect.

I found PersonalityMatch to be an amazing experience. I learned more about myself and understood better why I behave the way I do. I could not recommend any improvements to this app except to maybe making the comparison page a bit easier to read. I currently found it a bit crowded, with too much color.

Barring that, this app is the bomb! I can’t wait to invite all of my friends and a few coworkers to see how they match up to me. I look forward to forging better relationships using the power of PersonalityMatch.

Lonely Sun – Use Gravity as Your Guide to Create Planets

If you are a lover of astronomy, then I have got a game for you. It’s not often that you find a gaming app that is centered in outer space in a way that is productive, and not destructive. Lonely Sun is exactly that.

In Lonely Sun, your missing is to command gravity with your fingertips and create planets. During five stages of the game, you create a planet from materials that you encounter as you move your baby planet through space. Each stage has you building one planet. Each of these planets, if you are successful in building them, will then orbit the sun that is at the center of your game.

While it sounds very simple, there will be some obstacles. No, they won’t be aliens or meteors; but rather, neighboring worlds that may collide with your world, rendering your planet helpless.

Building up your planet involves some strategic swiping. You strategically float your planet around the screen, moving close to the sources of materials that your planet needs to grow strong. For each planet, there will be three core elements that you need to find and absorb. These will be introduced in three gaming phases per stage.

The game is broken down into five stages, each representing one planet that you need to build. In each stage, you have three phases. Each of these phases represents a core element the planet needs in order to be complete.

lonely sun

The planets you will be building are: Ametho, Neryssa, Nuriona, Isolee, and Siroccee.

The game already sounds pretty interesting just from the names of the planets and with what you are tasked to accomplish. It gets even better with the music that comes from the background. It really adds to the aura, especially if you have your headphones on, which I highly recommend.

What I really liked about this game, which comes off as a bit nebulous at first, is that you get a simple overview of what the game is about and what you will be doing. It’s not a full on instruction page, but it’s pretty helpful.

I especially liked knowing ahead of time what the five planets were. The layout of the screens was neat, playing into what scientific minds like.

To start, you begin at stage one, which is building Ametho. You guide Ametho, or the startings of it, around space, looking for element one, which is your goal for phase one. When you accomplish this, you move on to phase two, to get the second element; and then phase three. Once you accomplish phase three, you are done with creating Ametho!

Then, you move on to creating Neryssa, Nuriona, Isolee, and Siroccee, all in the same manner. But remember, they all need to be completed in sequence. There is no skipping around to what you feel like working on.

I didn’t find much that I did not like about this game. I loved the background music, but would like it if would change up a bit every now and then. After some time, I did feel like I was listening to meditation music, and almost fell asleep.

Outside of that, I would highly recommend this game to anyone who is looking for something different. Lonely Sun is like no other that I have played before.

Max Fitness Workout Assistant to Control Your Fitness Regime

Have you been trying really hard to lose weight while spending money on expert advice and not been successful? Have you been worried about how to stay on track while losing weight? Have you been looking for a good training plan that will assist you in your weight loss goal without putting much pressure on you? If you have answered ‘yes’ to any or all of the questions above, then it is time that you took control of your fitness regime and started working on it flexibly, the way you wanted to do it and in your own free time. To assist you in this process is the very helpful android app, ‘Max fitness workout assistant’ that can keep track of your progress by letting you log all your activities and provide advice on what to do and what not to do.

Max fitness workout assistant provides all the fitness trainers, assistance in their training and helps them put their best effort into achieving their fitness. It lets you key in some personal information and generates advice based on that input, which the user can follow at their own convenience.

Max fitness workout assistant is available free on the google play store. Once installed and on opening the app, it guides you to a screen where you can go through a theory on how to achieve your fitness goals if you are a novice user and, pro users can just dive right in to use the app. The theory should take anything between 10 to 15 minutes to complete where you input your age, gender, height, weight and the amount of exercise you do every week. These values can be entered in the metric system of your choice. Based on your input, it calculates the maintenance level for you in kcals. This calculation will be just a start to maintain your fitness as it is currently.

max fitness

The app then takes you to the next screen where you can compare your fitness level with examples, displayed as images, to roughly estimate the amount of fat in your body. If the level is above 27%, the app suggests that you lose some fat before building up muscles and creates a nutrition report that you need to follow based on your input. The app then lets you choose how many days you are available for workout; 3, 4 or 7 days and based on your input designs a workout plan for you to follow. Workouts can be manually added or removed depending on what you wish to personally work on.

Features of the app:

  • Max fitness workout assistant can be used by both novice and pro users and hence does not stop anyone from using the app.
  • There are default plans that users can follow and see amazing results in a few weeks.
  • The app is very personalised and not generic thereby providing every user with their own personal advice, nutrition chart and personal training schedule.
  • The app does not stop with the above but goes further into where you can keep track of the workouts that you perform and your nutrition intake and these can be saved on the app. In return it generates reports to show progress which is the most important factor when it comes to a fitness regime that is, keeping a trainer on track.
  • You can see your detailed workout history and there are options to edit an exercise that has already been created.
  • The user has the flexibility to add multiple workouts per day and add 100 training days in advance if required. You can choose what type of fitness training you wish to perform and on which day of the week so that the app can design work days and off days and also alert you to keep you informed of your progress.
  • You can look at your monthly progress and your all time progress including your training overview.

Overall, Max Fitness is very simple to use with straightforward user interface and guidance on every screen for even novice users. There is no limit to the features available and this will suit anyone with any need as far as their fitness is concerned.

Along with the nutritional charts, it would be beneficial if the app could advise on what food to eat and avoid and the portions of food that one should be taking while following a fitness regime as most people slip at this particular task. This will also help users to save time looking for this information elsewhere on the web.

Rocket VPN – Surf the Net Safely

People are watching. If you are on the internet, you don’t know who the observers or trackers are, but know that what you think is safe, may not be. Every time you visit the coffee shop and use the “free” WiFi, is it really free, or are you paying with loss of privacy?

Most casual internet users don’t really know what software specialists know. Data traveling the internet is fair game for anyone to look at. That is where VPN comes in.

What does it stand for? Virtual Private Network. How do you get one? You download Rocket VPN on your device.

Rocket VPN allows you to create your very own network that you alone can use with safety and security. It allows you to protect your online identity, lets you see services that may be banned in your current location, and keeps the data you send and receive, protected.

I was not so sure about needing a VPN. I’d heard so many stories of folks having a tough time setting one up on their iPhone; but, then I heard about Rocket VPN. This app is not like the other VPN apps. It is much easier to setup and manage. In a nutshell, it’s made for folks who are not computer geeks.

Upon installing the app, you’ll be asked to provide some basic information. You will want to allow the app permissions to do what it needs to do. You will also select the location from which you will be accessing the internet.

rocket vpn app

After successfully establishing a connection, you will see a key icon in your status bar – Rocket VPN is active.

You would think that because this app is a fairly technical one, it’s not a game or a shopping app, that the interface would be complex and hard to read. That is not the case. Rocket VPN uses a great set of colors and layouts that make it so easy to set up what you need to and to navigate through the app.

What is really cool is that all you really need to control your connections and see your status is on the main screen.

If you need to see details on data usage, scroll down the main screen to find it and your current location. You get 30MB of free data per month, which does not rollover. If you need to unblock and launch apps from a particular VPN, there is a separate screen from which to do that.

Keep in mind that the download is free. But to actually use the VPN service, you will need to sign up for a subscription. It costs $3.99/month or $23.99 for the year – an extremely small price to pay for a great deal of security.

Now, here is the real kicker for folks who travel. Rocket VPN offers VPN setup from virtual locations globally, including the United Kingdom, France, Netherlands, Germany, Japan, Sweden, and Singapore.

While it outranks its competitors, Rocket VPN has its limitations. If you are in the middle of a subscription, then you cannot terminate it. You have to let it go to the end of its term before you can stop.

Not sure why you would want to do that. This VPN app was really easy for me to use and I felt really good about the fact that I could use the internet safely, without the threat of anyone hacking my connection and stealing my identity.

iSPY Differs from Other Location Based Games

If you are into augmented reality games and location-based games, then iSPY is one that you need to lay your hands on. You use real locations and play against real people. Players living in the city of Los Angeles have a special mission that is code named ‘Back from the Future.’

iSPY is very different compared to other location-based games in the fact that real people and real locations are integrated into the game thereby lifting limitations of staying within the missions of the game. Players can create missions or join missions created by other players / agents. If the player is within the gun sight of an agent, they need to confirm that they have been eliminated. Players also need to leave a clue and answer each location as they find them.

Once you log in with your credentials, you will be taken to a screen where you have the option to quickly read through a handbook that has some useful information and guidance on how to start and play the game, including creating a mission. The ‘show mission’ button reveals the list of missions available in your city giving you the option to choose any mission of your interest. Missions within 50 miles radius of your location are listed and the mission list is shown on a map for you to see how far each mission is from your location.

ispy screenshot

The map shows your current location and tracks you with the help of the GPS as you move. iSPY provides the players with enemy alerts if an agent comes within a mile of your location. Enemy locations can be seen on the map by tapping the blue agent location marker and it will display that agent’s information. Tapping the red button will initiate target mode.

Unique features of this game are:

  • Playing against real people in real locations thereby taking location-based games to a completely different level.
  • Creating missions – While creating a mission, it is recommended to keep the mission description short and any mission that you create will be available for players within a 50mile radius along with tagged GPS info. You can enter clues and additional information for the clues. If you wish to be more descriptive, you can add additional intel. This helps other agents who join your mission to understand all about the mission.
  • Weapons are location-based
  • Creating clues – To create clues for each location, you need to travel to each location to create them and once all the locations are done, you tap ‘submit all clues’ to create the mission. You can add an ‘upon completion’ message that gives a message to agents when they complete a mission.
  • Awards and commendations – Once agents complete a mission, special skills and commendations are awarded; for example, an explosives expert, a submarine mechanic, etc.
  • Experience and promotions – Depending on field experience, agents are given promotions.
  • Comparing ranks – You can compare your ranks against other agents in your area and also against national agents in the state.

There are times when there may not be any players available to play with or against. There may be no missions available to play or no agents to join your mission especially in rural and suburban areas thereby not giving everyone who wishes to play this game a chance. To add additional clues, you need to be at that particular location of the answer to the clue.
