8 Handy Apps To Help You Stick To Your New Year’s Resolution

In this day and age, it seems that we are not too good at keeping to our resolutions, whether it’s as difficult as giving up smoking or as easy as saving a bit of cash. A US study conducted on the 1st of January showed that only 9% of those who made their promises actually stuck to them.

Year upon year we enter a new period of our lives by setting ourselves a number of personal goals; filled with the hopes and ambitions of a better time ahead and a new and improved you. Few are lucky enough to truly go the distance while the vast majority see their willpower cower in the face of temptation; “maybe just one doughnut” or “I really need to save money, but wait – ooh I quite like that jacket”.

That’s why we at Insurance2Go we have brought together eight great apps to help you stick to your new year’s resolutions in 2018.




Duolingo – Free


Heading on holiday this year?

Impress the locals with your impeccable pronunciation and vocabulary with this fantastic offering from Duolingo.

The app comes complete with a series of university-level courses in Spanish, French, German, Italian and Portuguese; all with a gamified approach to learning that make Duolingo one of the most addictive educational apps out there.

Available on all IOS and Android supported devices.




My Fitness Pal – Free


Let’s face it, following through with a diet is quite possibly one of the most difficult resolutions out there. Vegetable after vegetable, salad after salad; it can become a bit mundane, and then someone brings that chocolate cake into the office, throwing your priorities into complete disarray.

With My Fitness Pal you can stay motivated with an accurate calorie counter that tells you exactly what you are putting into your body with every meal. Who knows, you might just be able to make a little wiggle room for a slice of that cake and not have to suffer the consequences.

Available on all IOS and Android supported devices.




Nike+ Running – Free


If running out of breath every time you scale a set of stairs isn’t enough motivation to get you active then this app from Nike certainly will be.

With its remarkable coaching function, the Nike+ Running has everything you need to push yourself further while out on a jog.

A GPS tracking and overview feature will display your route and the best time to beat on your next session. Go the extra mile with audio feedback from Nike’s virtual coach and support from your friends with a live update through your Facebook and Twitter.

Give it a try and we’re sure you’ll be worthy of a marathon in no time.

Available on all IOS and Android supported devices.




Account Tracker – £1.49 (Free trial version is also available)


Whether you’re saving for a rainy day or aiming for a jetsetter holiday to the most tropical place on the planet; getting a handle on your unnecessary spending can be an extremely difficult feat.

But, with Account Tracker saving couldn’t be simpler. Tighten the reins on your budgeting across multiple accounts that list all of your outgoings and expenditures to help you judge just how much money you can keep back each month.

That dream trip isn’t as far away as you think.

Available on IOS and Windows Phone devices.




Quitter – Free


It’s time to finally drop that bad habit, you’ve seen the ads and tried the patches but with Quitter it’s a little different. You’ll be amazed at how much money you have spent smoking in the past, and how much you’ll have once you start cutting out the tobacco.

The brilliant thing about this app is that it counts your average expenditure on cigarettes and then shows you the balance of how much this will convert into cash in your pocket.

Feel healthier and save a bucket load of money in the process. What more could you want?
