These apps help you start your day off right. If you have trouble dragging yourself out of bed or need to find some peace before you’re hit with the day’s problems, this blog is for you.
As always, while they’re free now, we can’t guarantee how long they’ll last–so don’t wait too long.
1. WAKE UP REFRESHED
Nothing ruins a day like a poor night’s sleep. SleepBot (Android, iOS) uses your phone to listen to you as you sleep, noting periods of restlessness and snoring. Its built-in alarm wakes you up during a window of time that you specify, waiting until you’re already stirring in order to rouse you during a light sleep phase so that you don’t feel groggy.
2. CHECK THE WEATHER
For a nice overview of what Mother Nature’s up to, try AccuWeather (Android, iOS). The app can leverage your exact location via GPS to give you detailed weather information, with minute-by-minute rain forecasts that cover a span of two hours. You’ll know exactly how long you have until you can close your umbrella, in other words. There are plenty of videos onboard as well if you’d prefer to get the forecast from a flesh-and-blood meteorologist.
3. GET CAUGHT UP
Smart News (Android, iOS) is a quick-loading, no-nonsense news app that serves up the latest headlines, customized to the kinds of articles you like to receive and saved so you can read them offline while on the go. If you just want to check out what’s happening without customizing anything, the app digs through more than 12 million articles each day to surface the top trending stories.
4. STAY ONE STEP AHEAD OF TRAFFIC
Venerable classic Waze (Android, iOS) is a GPS app that pulls in data from other Waze users to intelligently route you around troublesome traffic tie-ups. It gets smarter the more you use it, too, learning your schedule to send you alerts when you normally leave for work in the morning or get set to sneak out of the office in the afternoon. You’ll get warnings about speed traps as well; nothing like starting the morning off with a ticket, eh?
