The 5 best Android and iOS apps of the week

How has 2023 treated you so far? We trust that you are doing well. Without further ado, here we are with the first edition of the top 5 apps of the week on both Android and/or iOS platforms for 2023! We have one game featured this week, Eversoul, for tactical RPG fans, so check it out!

Please note that this article is different compared to our twice-weekly edition of the free apps of the week. We don’t just read about them, but we downloaded and installed these apps individually, went through them and checked them out personally to make sure none of them come with unwanted in-app purchases (I’m not referring to essential features). Needless to say, we also want to make sure that none of them go behind your back and mine your data or personal information with considerate abandon, as we also want to maintain our privacy in a safe and secure manner!

This article is published weekly, so check out our top 5 apps from last week (or should we say last year? Hah!) in case you want to see how you can start the new year with a bang . Without further ado, these are the following apps that made our list this week!

Awesome daily routine planner (iOS and Android)

There’s nothing like getting on track at the beginning of the year. How about enlisting the help of an app to help you? The amazing daily routine planner comes to mind, helping you unlock the power of habits and routines. If 2023 is the year you want to prioritize your mental health, end the year on a strong note, and in better physical shape, this is the app to do it.

I’m someone who takes a laissez-faire attitude – I tend to go with the flow. With Fabulous, I found that it has helped me get back on track with my running, and in the first week alone I was able to drag myself out of bed in the wee hours of the morning (okay, it’s not that early, I’m talking about at 7 o’clock here) to pound the pavement and have this app to thank for.

You can upgrade the app which will unlock more features, including a coaching series, having unlimited habits for your daily routines, and Premium Journeys for better mental health and self-care. For me, I’m fine with creating one or two habits for the year and seeing where they take me when 2024 rolls around.

NeuroNation – Brain Training (iOS and Android)

I remember when I first bought my Nintendo DS Lite, one of the first titles that kept me glued for hours was “Brain Age”. Now that was a fun game that also helped jog my brain cells. NeuroNation takes a more scientific approach to training your mental abilities and caters to an extremely broad spectrum by improving your memory, helping you to be more focused and think faster on your feet.

The app asks for no more than 15 minutes of your time each day to give your brain a fresh start. It is highly personal and carries out a comprehensive analysis of your strengths and potential before creating a personalized training plan that suits your needs. Do you have that competitive streak in you? Get some friends to jump on the bandwagon and see who can outdo the others!

Keep in mind that this app is not meant to make any kind of diagnosis, but rather it’s just a fun tool to keep you jogging. For a correct medical diagnosis, it is best to visit a professional healthcare provider and undergo the right type of tests.

Deepstash (iOS and Android)

What can you achieve in 5 minutes? I know I can take a power nap, or simply waste my time with an insane rogue-lite game on my smartphone. Perhaps this is why my life has stagnated with little or no improvement. With Deepstash, 5 minutes is all it takes to learn something new. It relies on the principle of using bite-sized knowledge from books, articles, videos, podcasts and other sources on a daily basis to feed your brain so you end up better than yesterday.

How does it work? Ideas are presented to you in the form of tiny cards that can be read at a glance. These short notes condense deep thoughts into simple sentences, which can stimulate your gray matter to dive deeper. At the end of the day, there’s nothing like digging deep into a particular subject to master it, but Deepstash is useful for planting a seed in your psyche that can be the catalyst for something bigger and better.

Rewind: Music Time Travel (Android)

Time travel, the very idea of ​​it has inspired stories, movies and odes. Although theories may abound on the subject, here’s an app that makes everything easier. It plays on the idea of ​​music time travel, which is why the name Rewind is extremely apt. Basically, Rewind tries to tell you what your favorite music app would look like if it launched in an earlier era, such as the grunge 90s or hippie 60s, based on the greatest hits of the time, the dominant artists of the era, and the upcoming the divas.

A fun and harmless ad that lets you discover “new” old music based on context while dropping subtle hints of nostalgia along the way. There’s an infinite vertical feed in the app that lets you listen or watch 30-second snippets of songs from the chosen year and spice it up. In fact, it felt like I was tuning into a radio or TV station from that era.

Eversoul (iOS and Android)

Start the new year with a new strategy RPG that combines strategy, idle battles and city building. This mish-mash formula results in… Eversoul. This game allows you to recruit characters known as Souls, which you then put through a baptism of fire in the form of (what else?) battles. Needless to say, it’s fun trying to juggle the different stats and skills for each character and figuring out how to get the most out of what you have.

Your assignment? Slay monsters that care nothing but pure destruction and destroy the reality you know, which is Eden. There are a lot of characters to choose from, and you might want to stop being so tiresome in your personality when talking to your troops, as a good relationship is of the utmost importance. Another interesting aspect of this game is how you work your way to find out other souls’ true names, so make sure you make the right choices!
