By Leslie Horn on at

Perhaps you made some New Year's resolutions this week. Of course this is the year you're going to keep them, just like every other year. Regardless, we're here to help, with two exercise apps, one to help you discover new music, and so much more.



SeatGeek, ParkSpot, and More

MusicPlayr: You've been favouriting tracks across different sites for years, and now you can combine them into mega playlists with MusicPlayr. Pick videos from YouTube, Vimeo, Soundcloud, and music blogs to create soundtracks, obscure or otherwise. Free

SeatGeek, ParkSpot, and More

Cruise Control: I'm incapable of running without motivating music, and CruiseControl is the perfect DJ for a jog. It adjusts songs as you go to keep you on pace and in-line with your target heart rate and time. £2.99

SeatGeek, ParkSpot, and More

iRun From Dogs: Speaking of exercise, maybe you're the type who needs some kind of life or death situation to get you off the couch. This one does exactly what the name says—it simulates a wild pack of dogs chasing you so you keep those legs moving. £0.69

BBC Sport: Fresh off the back of the BBC Olympics app, you can now get a slick new BBC Sport app that wraps up everything sport from Aunty into one interface, including a fancy fixtures calendar, live text coverage, gossip and rumour, and of course, results, with video coming soon too. Free.
