January is all about starting afresh and setting goals for the year, but once you’ve made those goals, it’s easier said than done when it comes to achieving them! Enter Coach.me (formerly ‘Lift’), an app that literally coaches you towards your goal by helping you build habits. By reminding you everyday to do something, whether it’s meditate for 10 minutes, exercise or dedicate half an hour to practicing a new hobby, it encourages you to take action and track your progress. A good start if you really want to stick to those resolutions and make lifestyle changes.
Launching last August in Hong Kong, Citymapper is perfect for those who are directionally challenged (that may be some of us here in the Sassy office… not naming names!). Loved in major cities like London, New York and Paris, Citymapper not only helps you navigate around town with a realtime sat nav, but it also helps save you time… now you’re listening! The app helps you plan the quickest journey and compares routes to your destination using all kinds of Hong Kong transport as well as walking and cycling routes. Now you can perfectly co-ordinate your ‘getting ready’ time and your actual travel time to that upcoming party or event. Being fashionably late is so 2015.
Okay, so this one isn’t that new… but it’s just so cool! Spice up your videos and Instagram with these cute, looped clips that are sure to entertain. If you love taking photos and experimenting with visuals, this app is definitely one to try out. Loved by celebs such as Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne and Kendell Jenner, Boomerang is a fun new(ish) app to add to your phone in 2016. Get snappin’!

Search for everything you could possibly want on your holiday and make sure you plan your trip to a tee with this easy to use app… they even have a flight tracker so you can check if your flight is running on time. Time to tick off that 2016 bucket list!
