In this weekly column we want to inspire you, and we do that by highlighting a series of interesting apps. Not every app will be relevant for everyone, of course, but chances are you will also get to know some great apps that you will not want to miss anymore. Here you will find our new selection.
Many Android users love to completely personalize their smartphone, and the most important aspect of that is without a doubt the launcher. The free app Ratio opts for a division into three structures that you will find on your phone: the ‘Tiles’, the ‘Root’ and the ‘Tree’.
The Tiles or ’tiles’ provide an overview of all apps that are on your phone. Apps are organized into categories and Ratio highlights the apps you use most at any time of the day. The Root or ‘carrot’ is most reminiscent of the OnePlus Shelf. You get immediate access to a number of important tools that you often use. Write a note in one go and check the weather forecast or set a timer. Finally, there is the tree or ‘tree’, which brings all incoming notifications from messaging apps under one roof. There are also more functions in Ratio such as encryption and different themes.
Ratio is a launcher that takes it very differently from its competitors. It’s a minimalist launcher, that’s not new, and wants to optimize your digital life.

Humans are creatures of habit. Once we get ourselves into a good habit or break a bad habit, we continue to behave in that same pattern. HabitHub wants to give users a boost to instill a new habit. You can keep a daily record of whether you have performed a particular habit and this way you get a nice graph and an overview to see how often you have performed it.
Suppose your habit is to walk 5 kilometers every day, then you can see how often you succeed, and you also see through the months whether you are successful more often or less often. HabitHub comes with several themes that make the app attractive and there is also a handy widget that allows you to tick off habits immediately.
Thanks for the tip, Ronny!
