Retro Pod, Steady Habit, Rizz, and other apps to check out this weekend

Yeah! We made it to the weekend everybody, which means it’s time for another Apps of the Week roundup. We have some great picks this week, including an app that turns your iPhone (visually) into an iPod Classic, an app for starting new habits, and a keyboard extension with built-in Ai tech. And as always, we’ve selected a great game for you to check out.

Retro Pod

Retro Pod is a super simple music player, with a UI that mimics an old click wheeled-iPod. Now I believe there are other apps/widgets that do this, and in fact I could have sworn we covered this one before, but I couldn’t find it. Nevertheless, Retro Pod connects with your Apple Music library and has great reviews in the App Store. Check it out!

Steady Habit

Self improvement apps are extremely hot right now, what with it being the start of a new year and all. Steady Habit isn’t brand new, but it’s worth checking out if you’re in the market for an app that will help you start and keep good habits. Features include an easy-to-use UI, notification reminders, note-taking, and a focus on small, actionable tasks.

Chat-based AI is also super hot these days, and developers are feverishly cramming the tech in iOS keyboard extensions. Meet Rizz!, a keyboard extension with AI technology that promises you’ll say goodbye to tedious typing and hello to lightning-fast communication. I think this is one of those things you just have to try for yourself. Great name though.

Subtransit Drive

Speaking of trends, making simulation games out of normally tedious, boring tasks is apparently a thing these days, and thus I give you Subtransit Drive. The game promises to “let you feel what it’s like to drive a real train, anytime and anywhere.” Whew! There are true-to-life graphics, AI traffic, and all joking aside, this game looks very impressive.
