1. Stay active with Standland

This widget is intended for anyone who sits more than is good for him or her, but it is actually fun for everyone. The cute creatures in Standland help you get up more often. You get up, they get up too. If you stay put, they will fall asleep.

In the widget you can see at a glance how you are doing and how long it will be before you have to get up again. More fun than you might think!


2. Monitor your progress with Fitness

The second of our iPhone tips is useful if you want to track your progress. Many athletes probably already use the Fitness app for this, because it is largely automatic. Only to view your results you have to open the app first. With the Condition widget, you don’t have to!

You can see in the widget by default how far your rings are already full, how many calories you have burned, how many steps you have taken and what distance you have covered. And all without having to open the app first.


3. Always in view of the weather with the Weather widget

Is the weather good for a run? Will you be able to get to the gym reasonably dry later? That is information that is very practical to see in a widget. The weather app widget is great for this.


Most weather apps that you find in the App Store also offer a widget. For example, you can choose Buienalarm widget, but one of the best, most accurate and reliable weather app and widget is Carrot. This app is just not free. You can try Carrot for a week, after which you have to pay 21.99 euros per year.
