Start the year off right, Hey Note is not your average note-taking application. This app allows you to write notes that then stick to your phone’s wallpaper.
For those who need to make sure they don’t forget something well this is a pretty solid solution.

Remember the good old days when pretty much every single Android device had a notification le well AOD Notified utilizes your phone’s punch hole.
To bring back this beloved feature there are two versions that you can get. One for Samsung’s lineup of phones and one for OnePlus, they do the same thing in that anytime you receive a notification.
A little ring will beat around your phone’s punch hole to tell you that you’ve got a notification.
There’s some fun customization to be had within the app settings as well though some of which you do need the premium version.
So, if you have a phone with an OLED panel then you might already know that if you use a black wallpaper or even a wallpaper that is partially black.
It can help to save your phone some battery life because the display can switch off.
Whenever the wallpaper is visible except sometimes when we think wallpaper is black it’s just really dark gray instead and that means the pixels will have to stay on.
It’ll save you no battery life so OLED BUDDY is an app that analyzes any given image and shows you just how much of it is true black.
You can then use the app to further darken those dark parts of the image to ensure that they are black.
You can then rest easy knowing you’re using a wallpaper that will save you some battery.

Whether it’s the transitions between feeds and posts or just the general look and layout of the entire app itself.
It’s honestly probably the most well-rounded of all the Reddit clients I’ve stumbled across.

For example, you might have different widgets set up for each of the different Bluetooth devices you have paired, and then rather than having to dig into your settings every time to reconnect to a different device.
Now you can just tap on the desired widget or even better is that you can even set up a widget.

The app is free to use but if you want to remove the ads you may need to buy the premium version of this app.

Google just recently announced its plans to stop unlimited google photo storage and so UNLIM has come to save the day with its somehow unlimited storage solution completely for free.
I mean I don’t know if this is all of a sudden going to get blocked behind a paywall or maybe there’s some hitting catch.
All I know is that at the moment it’s completely free there are no ads and you get unlimited storage of anything that’s stored on your phone.
If you want it to be stored online of course aside from that it’s also got a nice design if you need to free up some storage on your phone quick smart app might be worth checking out.
It is the new year so I’m sure we’ve all got some goals that we want to check off as the year progresses so it could be worth trying out an app called PRIORITIES.
The app is really simple in its functionality the idea is that rather than overcomplicating and over organizing our task lists instead.
We use this app to mindfully focus on three to five of the most impactful tasks that are going to help us to reach our goals.
You save time by not over organizing your life and yet you still get things done. An interesting concept for sure and a nicely designed app as well but if you’re looking for a more traditional method of taking notes and staying organized then you might want to consider it.
NOTALLY instead this is a fairly run-of-the-mill note-taking app in terms of functionality but all honesty.
There are many note-taking apps that you can find on the Google Play store. Many of which just have to put bluntly fairly lackluster designs and that’s what I like about Notally.
It looks good whilst doing what it says on the box so BUZZKILL is a really helpful app that is essentially designed to help keep your notifications under control so use this app to create rules that will tell.
What to do with all of the various notifications coming in on your phone? as an example you could set it up so that whenever a notification comes in for, let’s say Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and just between 9 am and 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday then buzzkill will dismiss the notifications automatically.
Now that’s just one fairly basic example but there are loads and loads of other options to choose between and it’s a seriously fantastic app that I’m going to be hanging on to throughout 2021
