Squid: the Swedish news app has been launched in Sweden too

Squid app logo

We are very excited to comment on this news, and that is that Squidapp is already available in its origin country: Sweden. Many countries (12 countries, in their respective languages) already enjoyed this app, but paradoxically not in the language and place from where it was developed. Now also the Swedes can do it, so we are pleased that now there is one more country and one more language to increase the success of this app.

And if you still do not know this app, you should know that it is available in English too for a long time and is fully translated into your language. With its simple graphical interface you can keep all the most important news published on the network organized into categories that you can customize and group into tabs.

Mental Health Apps: Self Improvement

This is the final part in this series about mental health apps, and here I bring up some apps for self improvement. It’s a pretty vague subject, which is why I have chosen to introduce a few different sorts of apps. One is specifically for just self improvement, but three are for creating good habits and breaking bad ones, one is to assist you while getting over addiction and two cover affirmations.  I hope you have gotten something good out of this series and maybe discovered something new that may help you in life.  If there are any comments I would be glad to respond! Now, to the apps.

Mental Health Apps: Meditation & Relaxation

In part 2 I cover one of my favourite subjects, meditation apps. Meditation has been proven to help relieve anxiety and stress, and I’m personally a sucker for guided meditations. I have a hard time turning my brain off so listening to someone else guide me is so far the best option for me. I try to meditate at least once a day and I find that it really makes a difference for my well-being. Here I bring up 7 meditation and relaxation apps that might make a difference in your life!

Mental Health Apps: Mood Trackers

Flower brain

This is part one in a small series on mental health apps that I have planned, with this one focusing on mood trackers. I feel like this is a very important subject to bring up since more people than ever before say they have problems with their mental health. A lot of it is blamed on social media and our constant need to stay connected, so maybe it’s luck(?) that there are so many good mental health apps out there. I use one myself; and in trying times I have used more than one at the same time. There are many apps out there for many different needs. I hope I have created a decent and varied list of alternatives in this area, just know that there are many more out there. If one of these does not fit your taste or demands, there most likely is one that does. Don’t be afraid to look. Your mental health is very important!

Apps for personal safety

Safety apps

Unfortunately, the world isn’t a safe place all the time, for women especially. I’m not sure if I know any woman who has not, at one point in her life, been scared walking alone. I have been talking to friends walking home alone several times in my life, and I have called a friend while walking home myself. It gives a sense of security. If something happens someone will know, or maybe nothing will happen if you become a more difficult target.

There has been a minor explosion of safety apps in the recent years, and there definitely is a market for them. I have been looking around and hope I have constructed a decent list of possible options. It’s unsure if all of them will be available in your country, so it can be important to check that before you decide.
