New Year Apps 2024

New Year's Eve feels more cheerful and promising than it has in many years, a true celebration as the future holds hope in 2024. In 2024, stay on track with resolutions using a planner to help you, checking off daily fitness goals and frequent decluttering tasks that feel much more achievable. 

Many of us make resolutions to improve our lives, but following through on those promises is notoriously difficult. Thankfully there are hundreds of apps that can help keep us on track. With the start of a new year, many are setting lofty self-improvement goals that will soon be abandoned. But there are apps that can help you stick to your resolutions.

Here’s a rundown of some of the more popular new year apps for your resolutions in 2024 and what apps might help you finally reach your goals.

1. Any.do

If keeping your thoughts organized is what’s hampering your productivity, a to-do list app will likely help a great deal. Any.do fits under this umbrella, letting users make lists galore. It also gives them the option to categorize certain lists and share lists with other people. One good feature it has gives people a daily snapshot of their tasks to help them prioritize and plan.

2. Fabulous

Fabulous: Daily Habit Tracker is a habit tracker app includes most of Everyday's features, and is completely free forever. Plus, it isn't only about creating unbroken chains or streaks of success, and can be used for flexible goals.

When you create a new habit in DailyHabits, you need to set how many days of a month you want to do that activity. Your dashboard shows all your habits as well as the entire month's calendar. Keep checking off days when you achieve your target. In the last column, DailyHabits will show the total goal days and the total achieved days so far.

DailyHabits also includes a journal element. The makers say that adding notes about your habits, whether it's how you're feeling or your new achievements or even misses and failures, helps to keep you on track overall. You can add unlimited habits and notes to DailyHabits, and even use it on your phone as the calendar is responsive to fit on mobile screens.

3. Toggl

For people trying to figure out how best to budget their time (as well as how best to charge for hourly services) there are helpful apps like Toggl, which keep track of users’ tasks. It lets users take note of how long they’ve spent on a certain daily task, and then it compiles all the data to create reports about what the user is doing and where the time resources are being spent.

While Toggl works great for groups and collaboration, it’s also a helpful tool for people trying to be mindful of how they spend their time and learn how to better execute a day’s tasks.

4. Lose It

Lose It a good app for people trying to set weight-loss goals. It lets them track their meals, which will theoretically lead to more mindful food consumption. It now has a feature that lets users take pictures of their meals, and the app will record what’s on the plate and reduce its calorie count (it’s still being tested, but many users have been surprised with the accuracy).

Resolution: Get Healthier

Devices: iOS, Android

5. MapMyRun

MapMyRun is one of the older mobile running aids around, and it’s a good way for people to get back into the swing of cardio exercise. It helps users find the best routes for their outdoor jogs or sprints, as well as lets them track progress and set goals.

6. Duolingo

Everyone always says they want to be multilingual but never get around to doing it. Duolingo is an app that can help change that. It instructs users in dozen of languages using games and quizzes, along with some social aspects too. If someone is hoping to bone up on their French, or has plans to visit a far-off island, Duolingo would undoubtedly come in handy. It’s also just an easy mobile pastime that’s better than scrolling through endless social feeds.

Devices: iOS, Android

7. Pocket

If you resolved to read more this year, Pocket will help you with at least the digital part of that. The app lets users save articles they see online that can be accessed later via their mobile devices. So if I see an interesting long read at work but don’t have time to read it then, I can save it using the Pocket extension and then find it that night to read on my couch.

8. Digit

A lot of people want to save money but that’s easier said than done. Thanks to technology people can save extra cash without even noticing it. Or that’s at least what Digit tries to do. The app is simple, albeit a bit scary. It looks at your spending patterns and notices places where you won’t notice if you lose a few bucks.

It then automatically takes those few bucks and puts them into a savings account. So it makes a transaction that will feel to you like a cup of coffee, but it’s actually creating savings. For the less than perfect saver, this could be a way to plan for a brighter financial future.

Resolution: Save Money

Devices: iOS, Android

9. Mint

Mint has been around for a while, and has slowly become a widely trusted budgeting app. It plugs into users’ accounts to know their financial situation, and then lets them set goals. People can work to pay down their credit card debt, build their savings, etc. So for people with specific financial resolutions in mind, Mint might a good way to start.

10. Headspace

For those hoping to escape the world, even for just a few minutes, there’s Headspace. It leads users through guided mediations, giving them the ability to calm down for a few tranquil seconds. It’s one of the many ways smartphone owners can use their devices to train themselves to stop and become more cognizant. And it also helps users track their progress to see how mindful they’ve truly become.

Resolution: Eliminate Stress and be more mindful

Devices: iOS, Android

11. Stop, Breathe, & Think

Most “mindfulness” apps are very similar–they give users a chance to put on headphones and decompress from the world via guided exercises. Stop, Breath, & Think is similar–much like Headspace–but it focuses more on mood and less on the act of becoming more mindful. It gives people access to free meditations and tracks how they feel as well as rate each meditation experience over time.

Resolution: Eliminate Stress and be more mindful

Devices: iOS, Android

Only you can help yourself reach your annual goals. But these apps are a good way to start–and if they don’t work with your system, know that there are dozens of other, similar ones too. So if you’re just trying to figure out how to begin, looking to your smartphone for encouragement may be a helpful avenue.
