Coronavirus forces each of us to adapt to an unusual way of life. Social distancing applies to everyone: those who are in quarantine or self-isolation, and those who do not even have the luxury of staying home because of the specific working routine of theirs.
The applications below are based on the principle of diversity. It doesn’t matter if you are an introvert or an extrovert; If you’ve been struggling with mental health problems for years, or you’ve just encountered it; If you’re a gamer or a book worm – You will definitely find the app you like here.

Available for iOS users.

Once you get into the app, you will have to answer a few questions, and the algorithm will determine which “path” to take. You are also provided with quizzes and assignments to accomplish a specific goal daily.
