We had an opportunity to look at smart calendar and automatic to-do list app 24meand were reasonably impressed with the feature set and functionality. Now, in its latest update, 24me adds a new feature it calls “Assistants for Everyone.”
According to the developer, the latest addition makes the app smarter and allows for better control of hard-to-do tasks “by automating the things they were putting off.” In addition to this, the assistants are dynamic in the way the react to listed content, such as offering delivery services for packages or cleaners for housecleaning.
It might not be the start of a new year but it’s never too late to start making a change to one’s life. LifeSpicer goes some way to facilitating that ideal.
The app offers 365 different ways to spice up life, with challenges ranging from going commando for the day to donating to charity or memorizing a Simpsons quote.
They might not be all life affirming or revolutionary but they’re bound to give the day a bit more of a kick and make things more interesting. Some will push users to step outside of their comfort zone, others will be randomly silly. All will be worth trying.
Throughout, users can track their progress and check the tally to see how they’re doing. Each day a random Spice of the Day is offered by the app so there’s no guessing what’s going to come up next!
LifeSpicer should prove to be a great way of getting more out of life and doing something fun and different each day of the year. Let us know how things go with the LifeSpicer plan.
It’s a problem that many parents face: how to encourage their kids to complete useful chores and tasks. The carrot and stick idea is a good one, encouraging kids to do things in exchange for eventual rewards. This is exactly why parents for years have organized sticker charts to give the youngsters a goal to attain. Once upon a time, my parents would give me a gold star every time I completed a chore with the promise of a toy He-Man: Masters of the Universe sword once I completed the chart.
Technology has moved on and so has the way that sticker charts are completed. So we come to Sticker Quest, a new app that parents and children can play together, creating daily chores and giving kids an everyday list of quests to complete such as brushing their teeth, tidying their room or simply drawing a picture of a dinosaur. Kids can then collect stickers for every task/quest they complete as well as level up to unlock new characters.
It’s a pretty fun sounding concept to me and one that kind of sounds like a child’s version of EpicWin which certainly did wonders to my motivation!

Things is a powerful app for managing your to dos, honeydos, and projects. Whether you’re using it as a simple task manager, or as a full-blown project manager, you’ll get your money’s worth out of this powerful little tool.
This game is really for folks who have tried every other "make a product, sell it to customers before they leave or get angry" style of game. I would try the free one first to see if it holds your interest ~ you might just prefer a burnt hot dog to the game.
If you didn’t catch my post last week, I’m going to be picking one non-game app a week that turns my iPhone into a device that helps with everyday life. Last week my choice was Groups, check out the post here.
My pick for this week is Put Things Off, the to do app by Pocket Jam. This is a basic and sort of stripped down version of a to do app – making it incredibly simple and amazing speedy. For $2.99, I would suggest this app for any iPhone user who wants a to do app without complexity. It’s still a debate, but I will probably use this app instead of Things (my review on that is coming eventually) once the developer adds tags to Put Things Off (which he told me was coming eventually).
Check out the review of Put Things Off here. And suggest an app for next week’s utility here!
