Five Essential Lifestyle Apps

Apps are a great way to improve your health and other important things in your life. You’ll be amazed at what you track with your Android or iPhone. Apps are an excellent example of how technology can have a positive impact on our daily routines. Many apps are either low in cost or are free, making them accessible to anyone with a phone.

Bath has some excellent places to walk, and it’s worth collecting all your exercise information to help improve health and look for areas for improvement in our workout routines. If we notice that we aren’t reaching a certain number of steps per day, we’ll more be inclined to head out for one of Bath’s many trails. To help you, we’ve put together some of our favourite apps, with some that are unique to Bath and the surrounding areas.

Thomas Firbank’s Favourite Lifestyle Apps – 

My Fitness Pal –  one of the most popular fitness apps, My Fitness Pal counts your steps and calorie intake. Its massive database and QR scanned helps you track your food intake while tracking your exercise routine. Ever wanted to lose some weight but you’re mystified at your inability to lose pounds? Just scan in your food items, and you’ll see if can improve your current diet.

Map My Run – this is the ultimate app for runners. With over 70 million routes available (yes, 70 million!), Map My Run has a route for any postcode. And that’s what you do. Type in your postcode, and it details various routes. Like to run on your travels? No problem – MMR will tell you the popular routes for local runners.

Sleepfulness – a good night’s sleep is essential to health and well-being. This app will help you achieve your set targets by playing soothing audio tracks, which are like the mindfulness and meditation apps. If you’re struggling to get your 6 – 8 hours a night sleep then it’s worth testing this app out.

Memrise – this app is a combination of word games and stories to help introduce you to new languages. You’ll find a refreshing way of testing the water of a language, which would prepare you for more studying. There are other add-ons for people who want to take it to the next level.

Simple Habit – mindfulness and meditation apps always trend well. Simple Habit’s premise is simple – 5-minutes every day of mindfulness, aimed at real-life situations like travelling to work, assistance with sleeping patterns, and traffic jams. It’s a simple concept for busy lives.


Apps for Bath – 

Another great thing about apps is they often have ones that are specific to your home town. Here are a couple of Bath-specific apps –

Bath Life – the stalwart publication of everything that is Bath, Bath Life now has its own app. You can enjoy all the reviews and upcoming events, as well as fashion tips and Bath-related trends.

The Official Bath App – this is one of the most impressive apps available for Bath. It’s designed for locals and visitors, to improve their experience of Bath. You can find all the best restaurants and coffee shops. If you’re lost, the ‘where am I’ function locates where you are and helps direct you. The augmented reality feature helps you explore the city with your phone’s camera.


Thomas Firbank –We’re Fans of Positive Uses of Technology – 

The Thomas Firbank team are always happy to pass on good advice to our customers. Mobile app technology has the power to improve our lives. Additionally, apps are usually low cost or free. It’s always a good idea to use a home inventory app to save your house’s contents. Afterward, you can send your details to your insurance provider and it will save you time if you’re relocating.
