Now you can avoid a bad mood in the morning, make sure you have plenty of vegetables to cook and even manage your savings. All this from your smartphone, with free apps available for both iOS and Android.

Your smartphone isn’t just for scrolling through social networks or texting your friends. And no, it doesn’t have to be an ally for procrastination. Quite the opposite. Thinking about tight schedules, classes, exams, meetings, appointments, traffic and public transport doesn’t exactly embody a heavenly scenario, but it doesn’t have to be synonymous with accumulated stress and nerves either.

Now you can guarantee the quality of your sleep, save a lack of creativity at dinner time and even ensure you have all the (fresh) vegetables you need for your signature recipes. All this from your smartphone, without leaving the sofa. How? We’ve put together 4 apps that will revolutionize your life.

Sleep Cycle

In general, adults need 4 to 6 sleep cycles of 90 minutes to regain energy, which

corresponds to sleeping between 6 to 9 hours a night. However, even when the hustle and bustle of the day-to-day (or the workload doesn’t allow you to sleep that many hours), the secret to waking up feeling like you’ve had a good rest is not waking up in the middle of a cycle.

And that’s where this app comes in. How do you make sure you don’t wake up in the middle of a cycle? It’s easy. You can set your alarm clock directly in the app. If you want to wake up at 8 am, for example, the app will start analyzing the best time to wake you up from 7:30 am and the alarm will only go off once you come out of deep sleep.

Sleep Cycle counts the time it takes you to fall asleep, records the sounds you make during the night (whether you’re just talking or snoring, it’ll be recorded) and, every morning, it gives you a graph with your sleep cycles and respective times. And the best thing? It’s free and available for both iOS and Android.

The Fork

The truth is, even with a full fridge, we don’t always feel like cooking. Especially after a day of classes or meetings. And that’s OK, because there’s already a (free) app that offers discounts of up to 50% in a wide range of restaurants.

It’s called The Fork, it’s available for both iOS and Android, and is the ideal app for those who like to dine out and invest in gastronomic literacy, without hurting their wallet.


Ideal for managing (and saving) your finances. With Monefy, you can enter how much you’ve received or spent per day, with the assurance that the app will give you a visual representation of your spending.

This way, you can understand how comfortable you are with your budget, how much you can and can’t spend and, also, which expense is eating up most of your money. After all, is it the Zara sale or happy hour with friends that’s to blame?

Maria do Pomar

You no longer have to go to the market, at 7am on a Saturday morning, to ensure you have fresh vegetables and organic fruit for your recipes. With the Maria do Pomar app (available for both iOS and Android), you can now order the products you need. Ideal for ensuring that, after a day at school or at work, you have the tomato for gazpacho. The process is simple: in the app, you will find all the vegetables and fruits available, with the respective updated prices. While browsing the options, you can make your own basket of products or even opt for Maria do Pomar’s suggestions. The choice is yours, but the final scenario is always the same: fresh fruit and vegetables delivered directly to your door.
