3 productivity boosting apps that won't bore you to tears

It's all very well wanting to be productive and motivated, but who wants another app that organises things into lists? Here are three apps that will keep you motivated and amused in equal measure - probably.


Do you find that accomplishing things in real life just isn't giving you the satisfaction anymore? Habitica turns your real life into a role-playing game, turning all of your chores and tasks into pixelated monsters. When you do well in the real world, your avatar does well in the game world. And so do your friends, because you can play this co-op too.

If you feel like you need more of an incentive to clean your bathroom, or wish there was some sort of consequence when you've sat on Facebook for three hours, this app might be for you. Defeating a boss because you loaded the dishwasher has to be pretty motivating.

Mimicker Alarm

Getting up in the morning isn't easy, and this app certainly won't change that. But it promises to get you awake and keep you awake, and start your brain up in the process. To do this it challenges you to pull a face, say a tongue twister or take a photo of something a certain colour - or, actually force you out of bed. If you don't do it within the time limit, the alarm goes off again.

If you're not prepared to start taking orders from your android we totally understand, but we're guessing that this app will make your mornings more productive just through its lack of a snooze button.

This app is only available on Android

Zombies, Run!

This app works on the principle that you will probably run faster if you have hoards of flesh-eating zombies chomping in your ear. Plug in your headphones and start running, and you'll be thrown into a story straight out of 28 days later just through your headphones, complete with rescue missions, survivors and plot twists galore.

If that sounds far too stressful for your morning jog, try their sister app The Walk Game, which has a gentler pace but the same amount of awesome plot line.

The Transcendit Way

Transcendit understand that when you choose to work with us, whether we're taking care of your IT, app or web development, you're trusting us with part of your business. So whether we're looking after your computers, phone systems or servers we always do things 'the Transcendit way'.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
We appreciate it when you take the time to give us feedback. A system called CustomerSure records our client's responses, so you can trust that our reviews are from real people.
