It’s an app to encourage you to drink enough water every day! Basically you plant cute little virtual plants and by inputting the water you drink, the plant gets watered and grows! And you make it sad if you’re not drinking water. kassatea

It’s a weather app that is imho much better at giving me the information I want to know about the weather. For instance, I am in my car and a storm is raining down, the app will let you know how long the burst will last. It also gives you a percentage and time when rain is expected at your location. So instead of a 50% chance of showers, it will tell you around 2pm it’s going to rain but the rest of the day will be clear – great, I’ll be back by 1 so I can dress for it being clear and not bring an umbrella. Really nice app, great design! JohnnyG365

I spent $10 on a crosswords app around 6-7 years ago. It pulls new crosswords from a dozen different newspapers as well as some random online sources, and there’s at least 5 new crosswords to choose from every day. The same app company has a free version of this. I prefer the paid one because it has way more puzzles. cmc

If you have mental health issues like myself, it’s def a godsend. When I have my bouts of depression it really helps to cheer me up.
It’s really simple you have your cute little animal you can dress up with cute hats using tokens you earn by opening the app and answer 3 questions/doing 3 tasks a day. The tasks/questions help remind you to do the basics, like pay bills, cook food/eat, go shopping and encourages you to be social. It also has a calendar that reminds you to take any medications you may have. rushedblue
A Soft Murmur
It’s good if you want to vary your white noise intake. It has multiple sliders that lets you choose just what you want to listen to, which is especially useful if you want to fall asleep to the soft sounds of, say, a coffee shop that’s on fire. – Portarossa
I lost 60lbs using this motherfucker. Just created a profile, entered my goals, and stuck to the daily limit and logged EVERYTHING. I’ve been overweight/obese most of my life and this not only worked but has helped me maintain the weight loss.
The app has a massive database of foods. Also a feature that allows you to scan the UPC barcode on things to look them up. It has so many features that it has a bit of a learning curve but once you get used to it the process becomes easy. – Creamed_Crap
