We all have goals in life. Some of them are very achievable and others are a lot more difficult. We never intentionally fail at our goals but sometimes we just lose track of them. Probably the best example of this is when we want to lose a little weight. You might start out with a goal of losing 20 lbs but then life gets in the way and before you know it you’ve actually gained another 5 lbs! Having an app that will help you to visually track these goals and provide you with periodic reminders can be quite helpful: this is exactly what the app Something New to Do was designed to do. This app can be purchased in the App Store at a cost of $4.99 and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and the iPod touch.
There are many apps that can help you track your goals and measure your progress but few of them have the same richness of features available in the Something New to Do app. This is a great little app that really can help you with finally achieving all of those goals that never seem to get off the ground. The price is a little more than most apps of this type, but this one really does do the job.
There isn’t a lot negative to be said about this app. It does exactly what it’s supposed to do and it does it well. There aren’t really any instructions when you open the app but you don’t really need any; it’s that easy to use. This app will use 3.6 MB of space on your iOS device.
How it Works
When you first run the app there isn’t much to see, just a big empty green screen with a plus sign in the top right corner. All you have to do to get started is tap on that plus sign to add a goal to your list at which point you’ll be prompted to add something new to do. You simply type in a description of what you want to accomplish and tap on the checkmark in the right-hand corner to save your goal. Next you’ll be prompted to pick a time of day you’d like to be reminded of your goal: you don’t have to include a reminder but it’s probably a good idea. The last step is to choose the date you want to achieve your goal by. All of these features make it that much easier to keep track of your goals.
Once you’ve created some goals you’ll be able to view them back on the main screen. This screen will be divided into three categories: goals that you’re trying to accomplish, goals that you achieved, and goals that you failed to achieve. These are color-coded and easy to follow.
Keeps track of how many days left till your deadline
Also tracks when you’ve achieved a goal or when you’ve failed
The price is somewhat more than the average app at $4.99
Something New to Do is a great app for tracking all your personal goals. Probably one of its best features is the ability to see how many days are left until your deadline. The app doesn’t let you down easy though; if you fail to achieve your goal in time it will record this as well. This is definitely an app worth installing.
