So here are top 10 picks.
Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards.
“Trello is a great app if you are looking for a simple interface to store all your projects, tasks and ideas. Suitable for collaborative projects, as well as for personal use. It has definitely helped me stay organized and more productive.”
— Maja Stanimirovic, Digital Marketing Specialist
Workrave alerts you to take micro-pauses and rest breaks.
“This old-school piece of software forces you to take a break from the computer once in a while. Great if you're one of those people who lose their sense of time when focused. Good for your eyes and back, too.”
— Peter Cernuta, Senior Product Manager
Studio One DAW is an app for recording, producing, mixing, mastering and performing music.
“For me, one of the best places I can be mentally is making music. So there is nothing better if, at the end of the day, I can squeeze an extra hour or two, open my StudioOne DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and just start creating and having a bit of fun”
— Janko Tomsic, Team Lead & Senior Web Engineer
Oak Meditation transforms your meditation from an experiment into a habit.
“After using a lot of subscription-based mediation apps I found Oak meditation and have been using it since day one. For me the whole “one track of audio” to get me meditating really works. I never missed different lessons and voice options that other apps offer. Oak also has a nice feature for power napping relaxation sounds. Actually, I use this feature more often than the meditation ones.”
— Primoz Skerget, Product Design Lead
Wim Hof Method is a natural training tool for the body and the mind.
“As simple as it may sound, proper breathing techniques can significantly impact your body and mind. I highly encourage anyone to try Wim Hof’s App for (at least) a couple of weeks!”

Kindle app allows you to explore among millions of books, magazines, newspapers, comics, and manga.
"Kindle has been a great way for me to discover new and interesting titles and helped with expanding existing as well as acquiring new skills."
— David Bojanovic, Tribe Lead
Pocket casts is one of the most popular platforms for podcasts.
“I feel Pocket Casts make the whole podcasting experience - the listening, the searching, subscribing, reviewing notes, queue management, etc - that much better than any other app I’ve used. This is what makes it my go-to podcasting app of choice.”
— Milos Mladenovic, Managing Director
Freeletics allows you to do personalized workouts at home, outside or in the gym.
“Maintaining an exercise routine used to be a nice habit to develop, but with the lockdown and then work-from-home it became a mission-critical one. My issue with similar apps before is that repeating a limited set of exercises gets very old very fast. By interchanging a few high-intensity training apps together, however, one can become creative and adapt to the levels and intensity that feel right. Also, a bonus: no equipment needed. Gravity is all we need.”
— Jaka Levstek, CEO and Co-Founder
Zero fasting tracks your fasting process and provides guidance and insights.
“I got inspired to try out Zero after watching AJ&Smart’s design sprint case study. I was just amazed that a 5-day design thinking process, that we also use at d.labs, helped Zero become the world’s most popular fasting app. I loved its sleek user experience and used it during one of my quarantine experiments of mindful eating. Needless to say, that the experiment outcome was “inconclusive”, but having an excuse to try out a truly delightful app made it all worthwhile.”
— Sara Stojanovski, Product Discovery Lead
Strava lets you track your running and riding with some cool features.
“It is one of the rare apps I use regularly, it has a nice interface, it’s great for keeping track of your fitness improvements and offers some nice details on your activities.”
— Valter Cvijic, QA Engineer
