Admit it, your iPhone screen looks just like theirs. And theirs. Boooooring. I found this app called “Not Boring”, which gives smartphones a complete makeover.
Not Boring is not just one app, it’s 4. A habit tracker, countdown timer, weather app and calculator. Not Boring is a suite of sweet apps that can replace those outdated apps with simple yet really cool looks.
A countdown clock displays large proper numbers. If you’re working or studying using the Pomodoro Method, there’s no better distraction-blocking countdown. The weather app looks the same. No detailed forecast, just temperature, conditions and a minimalist 7-day perspective.
There are different themes or skins, so let’s take a look at the calculator. Nothing fancy, just big numbers with sound effects. My personal favorite is the habit tracker. Do you want to stretch every day? Not Boring’s habit tracker sends a notification to remind you and tracks your progress.
Not Boring also makes it easy to create wallpapers for your lock and home screens. Add the widgets to customize the look of your phone, so you can see things like temperature, battery, health, stock prices or calendar. In a few minutes, your lock and home screens will have their own style.
Maybe you’re fine with a phone that looks like everyone else, but otherwise Not Boring apps cost $15 a year. It’s like a wardrobe change for the iPhone.
