In Indonesia, the percentage of Android smartphone users has reached more than 60% of total smartphone users, or around 33 million.

Android apps have been proven to not only be able to increase productivity, but also ease our mobility. Therefore, LiveOlive would like to review some Android apps that will improve your quality of life. You should try download these 10 apps if you have not had them on your smartphone yet:

1. LoveCycles – Period Tracker

When you first saw the interface, you might fall for this simple period tracker because of its lovely design. However, do not take its functions lightly. LoveCycles is not only able to record your menstrual cycle and duration, but also predict the symptoms of your premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and the next menstrual cycle.

2. Wunderlist

As humans, sometimes we forget things. However, it would be terrible to miss important things just because you have a limitation in memorizing several things at once. Nowadays, recording things on Android apps has become a practical choice, which is also more eco-friendly than writing on a notepad or sticky notes.

Indonesian celebrity Marsha Tengker is dependent on Wunderlist to remember her to-do lists. She is not just busy as a psychology postgrad student, but also as an entrepreneur who actively manages several businesses, i.e, a hangout place in South Jakarta, Southbox. “It’s simple, uncomplicated, just a mere checklist yet we can create several project folders,” Marsha says.

That way, she could also monitor several different things at the same time.

“If our partner is also using Wunderlist, we can assign tasks, put a due date, and create a shopping list,” she explains.

5. 7 Minute Workout

If you have included “healthy lifestyle” on your resolutions this year, having a regular workout is a solution that you cannot get a replacement for. However, as people are becoming busier and having less time to exercise, they tend to find a “shortcut” in making it faster and more effective.

The 7 Minute Workout is apparently suitable for those who want an “instant” result.

Yup, seven minutes will not mess up you busy schedule and “torture” your body for too long, right? This mobile app will give you some exercise movements that you can do within seven minutes. You can adjust the settings according to your needs, whether a workout is aimed to exercising muscles, losing weight, and so on. You cannot cheat, because this app would also record your work out days!
