Best Apps Library (updt 8/10/18)

I notice a lot of people talking about their favorite apps here, but since we’re all bumping around with our ADHD, it’s hard to keep track! I’ve seen people (and have been guilty of) talking about the same app in multiple different threads… So, I thought I’d make a little library of apps here to keep updated!

If your favorite app is missing, just post about it below! I’ll add it to the correct category here, OR make a new category for it!

That’s awesome Kayla, really well done. @scot should sticky this if possible.

I can’t think of any apps to put up there just now. If I find any, I’ll post.

RecipeKeeperPro is a gift I gave my wife (her request) a couple years ago. She loves it. She can import recipies from pretty much anywhere, edit, add photos, and… here is the kicker, create a meal plan for a given period, and based on that generate a shopping list. She can even add custom items like Diapers or Dishwasher soap. Super handy. Available on Apple, Android, and Windows 10 store. (Plus, cross platform login. Had to purchase the app for my PC, but she logged in to the app with her login, and it loaded right up.)
She will find recipes on her phone or the PC, and use our tablet as the recipe book when cooking.

Thanks!! I am kind of good at this sort of thing, and I know everyone benefits from centralized resources. :smile:

@JudasTheHammer - I’ve added RecipeKeeperPro under Grocery Lists. Good find!

Updated the “Mood Tracking/Mental Health” category to include the apps mentioned at the bottom of @Jessica and @Edward’s suicide video from this week. :slight_smile:


OMG routinist!

I entered my morning routine (brush, shower, pick clothes, whatever) and how long I think each thing takes me.

In the morning, I start the timer and it displays a bar of how long I’ve taken to do each thing in my list one after the next. It displays the estimated time WHEN I WILL BE DONE if I actually take as long as I said on each thing.

As if that wasn’t enough, if I get distracted and open another app it immediately sends me something “Remember, you’re picking an outfit (3 min left) Next: shower”

I’ve kept using it for almost a month… it hasn’t completely solved my problems but it absolutely helps.
