Most of us promise ourselves that this year will be different, and we will make some things in our lives better, but as the motivation starts to wear off we slip up at some point and fail. To help you stick to your New Year's resolutions, we've rounded up 5 apps that will keep you focused on your goals.
Goal: Get fit
App Solution: Workout Trainer
Getting fit or losing weight are one of the most popular resolutions made every year. Workout Trainer for Android will help you stay motivated and get in shape. The program provides you with numerous instruction videos and lets you train without using any exercise equipments. You can choose from a broad collection of various workouts and challenges and share them with friends. Workout Trainer comes as freeware with a pro version available for $6.99 per mouth.
Goal: Eat healthier
App Solution: Calorie Counter – MyFitnessPal
Of course, an exercise program is nothing without a balanced diet. MyFitnessPal's Calorie Counter provides you with a huge food library, so you can easily look up, scan with a barcode and track any meal. Moreover, the app comes with a wide range of recipes to help you pick and cook a healthy dish. The app is free and seems pretty effective (the developers say 88% of its users who track for seven days or more actually drop pounds), so there's no reason you shouldn't try it!
Goal: Manage finances better
App Solution: GoodBudget
Planning your budget and managing your personal finance can be a rather tedious task. Fortunately, there are a lot of apps that will greatly ease this process and help you understand your expenses better. GoodBudget: Budget and Finance is a great finance planner and expense tracker. The app lets you track your bank balances, analyze your expenses and maintain your budget by splitting it into categories, or envelopes. The tool is quite easy to use and comes with no price tag.
Goal: Get organized
App Solution: Any.do
If one of your resolutions for the next year is cultivate such a healthy habit as getting and staying more organized and increasing your productivity, then Any.do will help you manage all aspects of your life.

Goal: Learn something new
App Solution: DailyArt
Life is a never-ending learning process and if you're determined to learn a new skill every day, there are countless apps to help with your personal and professional growth. You can find apps that will aid you in learning a new language, improve your math or geographic knowledge, but I personally would like to recommend you a tool that will display one different piece of art every day as well as stories behind it. DailyArt will let you study art in a very simple way and if you spend 5 minutes every day on viewing and reading the small pieces this free app provides you with, you'll add some culture to your day and learn something new daily.
