The new year is here, and with a new year comes a new list of resolutions. So how does one keep up with all of their resolutions? With apps of course. Here are a few couple apps that will help start anyone’s new year on the right track. All of the apps listed below are available on the App Store and the Google Play Store.

Nike Training Club

Are you trying to work out more but have no idea what to do? Nike Training Club is a simple solution to your problem. With an assortment of over 100 workouts, it is an easy way for beginners to start or more advanced users to continue their journeys. The workouts can be filtered by muscle group, workout type and even with or without equipment. The time of the workouts can vary from quick six-minute pieces to 45-minute routines. The app also features workouts from top athletes such as two-time Olympic soccer gold medalist Carli Lloyd and Boston Celtic Kyrie Irving.

Libby

Did you used to read a lot and want to get back into it this year? If so, Libby is the perfect app for you, with the added bonus of being completely free with a library card. It works like an actual library with waitlists, due dates and a broad selection of books, all from the convenience of your phone. Books can also be downloaded so you do not have to be online when reading. Books are automatically returned, so you don’t have to worry about overdue fees.

UNiDays

Want to save money by cutting prices on all your favorite brands? UNiDays offers discounts for college students on a variety of brand name products from Ray-Ban to Adidas with discounts ranging from 10 to 25 percent off. They also have giveaways and a blog for tips. All you have to do is sign up and log in with your PeopleSoft ID.

StickK

Do you have a habit you want to kick or develop? StickK is an app that helps you reach your goals by having other people and even your money hold you accountable. When setting a goal, you are able to let a friend or family member coach you by making sure you are actually trying to change. For extra incentive, you can put money on the line; if you fail to reach your goal, the app will automatically send the money to any person you want. It also has a built-in journal to help you log your progress. The app was created by behavioral economists at Yale University.
