I have yet to come across a person who isn’t ambitious or aspiring to make his or her dreams come true. In plenty of scenarios, people go about with their relatively mundane lives in the hope that one day their dreams will actually come true. It could be anything from becoming a billionaire to launching a cupcake business or developing a mobile app on the side. No matter the size of the goal, it takes a lot of hard work and some motivation to follow through and get going.

Everyone knows that keeping up momentum on the changes you need to make or the time you need to invest in achieving a goal can be one of the hardest parts of the journey. Whether you wish to learn how to ski or have made the vow to run three times a week, Wonderful Day is one app that can help you reach your goal.

Wonderful Day (not to be confused with Wonderful Days or My Wonderful Day) lets you set goals and track their progress over a period of time. A series of dots, coloured green for progress and red for no progress, turn your action into a visual chain game. (more…)

Say goodbye to check marks or the pile of pebbles you normally use to count your accomplishments. Now there’s an app for that.

Trakr is a sleek and simple app in which you can keep track of, well, just about anything that you can count — books you’ve read, cakes you’ve baked, pages you’ve written, workout minutes you’ve logged, and so on. Plus, you can set numeric goals for yourself (maybe you want to run 100 miles), visualize your history and progress, sync with iCloud and even export your data via email.
