Welcome back for another episode of our Apps of the Week roundup. This week we have an app that serves up motivational quotes, an AI-driven background maker, and a powerful money tracker. And as always, we’ve selected a great new game for you to check out.
Motivation for the new year
Weird name aside, I think everyone can benefit from an app like this. As the name suggests it’s a hub for motivational quotes that will help you keep a positive mindset when things get rough. Yes some of the quotes are cheesy and the app itself is pretty basic, but sometimes it’s the simple things that work best.
bg AI: beautiful backgrounds
Speaking of simple, if you’re tired of looking for simple but elegant backgrounds, check out bg AI. It uses artificial intelligence to generate wallpapers for your iPhone with a single tap. It has 5 different modes to choose from and it supports Dark mode. Billions of combinations.
Habitual: Budgeting made easy
Tracking your money can help you eliminate wasteful spending and get your budget back on track. And if you haven’t found the right app yet, check out Habitual. It integrates with all major banks, Amazon and Venmo, and it offers a ton of visualization and customization options. 256-bit encryption.
Labyrinth City: Pierre the Maze Detective is an adventure puzzle game for children and adults alike. It’s adapted from the award-winning children’s illustration book series and it takes you on a trip through a world of underground cities, hot-air balloons and haunted houses. There are over 100 hidden objects and 500+ interactions possible.
