Top apps to learn something new every day

Today, most of us live such hectic lives that it seems impossible to find time to rest or to do something that does not belong to the daily routine. But, what if instead of wasting time doing activities that are useless, we find a moment to learn something new and thus increase our cultural level?

In that free time, we could learn a new language, some words of ours that we did not know, some history and culture, geography, science and nature or simply small data to retain in our memory.

Thus, at bedtime, we will know that we have been able to learn something that we did not know yesterday. There are a large number of educational applications designed to expand our knowledge, open our sights and teach us little curiosities that will expand our horizons.

To help you in this enrichment process, we are going to give you some of the best applications that will allow you to learn something new every day.

• Babbel
It is an app and also a platform for language learning. One of the most striking features of this tool is that it is intuitive and functional, and it also allows you to study at the pace you prefer: you decide how much you learn each day, and each lesson lasts only 15 minutes.

In this way, you can organize yourself according to the type of person you are and it will give you greater comfort when combining it with the different activities you have to do. Babbel app includes multiple languages, so you can choose what you prefer.

It is visual and attractive, easy to use and fun thanks to its great interaction. But that's not all, since Babbel is not just for learning languages in the strict sense.

It will allow you to discover many other things, some curiosities about the world of languages that perhaps you did not know, such as what languages are spoken in Switzerland, what is the official language of Belgium and so on.

• Curiosities of history
It is a tool that any fan of history will not be able to avoid downloading, but it can be used by anyone. As we can guess, it is an application focused on universal history, with educational content explained in simple and easy-to-understand words.

It proposes a broad and enriching review of the great epochs of history and of all the historical moments that delineated the present. It is, in short, a fun game that allows you to get closer to the knowledge of names, data and even relevant dates in the history of the world.

Each day will offer you a curiosity or a different piece of information, you will not have to do anything else, simply read the entry that interests us and enjoy content written by a real and professional team of historians.

Besides that, you can always have a curious fact to impress others.

• World geography
As its name can anticipate, we are facing an application not only ideal for learning data about other countries or continents that we did not know, but it can also become the lifeline of many young people, who are currently trying to learn the different capitals, flags, coins even religions of each country.

World Geography offers you a wide variety of games with more than 6,000 questions divided into different levels and will help you by showing you images of each place (it has a repertoire of more than 2,000 images).

It will help you to place the countries of the world in a pleasant and even fun way, with quizzes and questions about the flags and capitals of all countries. Put your knowledge and intelligence to the test in this new challenge.

• Google Arts and Culture
This app allows you to visit the most important museums around the world and enjoy the great variety of works of art appreciating even the smallest detail.

You can also discover photographs, videos and manuscripts and even create your collection of favorite works of art to share with your friends.

Google Arts and Culture has a collaboration with more than 1,200 museums, galleries and institutes in 70 countries, to offer its wonders online to users.

With this application, you can receive more information about the works of art by pointing the camera of your device towards them when visiting a museum. By enabling notifications, you will know the most outstanding news from the world of art and culture every day.

As you may have understood, it is the perfect application for art lovers, students of this subject or for those who want to learn something new on the subject simply through one click.

• 7-minute workout
Despite the fact that physical exercise should be something common in our day to day, many of us remember it only when the good weather arrives and the time to show off our body in summer approaches.

If you want to start exercising but don't have the time or desire to go to the gym, with 7-minute training, you can exercise without leaving your home.

This application offers centralized training programs based on HICT (high intensity circuit training) exercises, so it can be of great help if you have little free time.

You will be able to realize the first results after a few days and you will see that all the efforts are worth it. The only thing you need to carry them out is a wall and a chair to support you.

Choose the right app for your needs and improve your lifestyle starting with small steps. It is never too late to learn something new.
