Review - The Daily Drive for iOS

By

30 days of inspirational platitudes can be yours, delivered via your phone or tablet.

The Daily Drive is a motivational app, part of a series from the Milestones Collection. Each day, for 30 days, the app reveals a snippet of inspirational meaning, which you can share with your friends, family or colleagues. The app refers to these snippets as "drives", hence the daily drive.

Navigation is a little unclear the first time you use the app, but you soon learn that tapping at the bottom right of the screen - akin to turning a page - moves forward through the day's message. Each day has a specific theme - fear, desire, setback and 27 others - and as well as taking messages a day at a time you can view the index of available drives and open any one you require.

In a nice touch, the app also lets you select a word describing how you feel today, or what sort of message you need today, and will provide a list of possible drives that match your mood or need.

Each message is quickly digested with only minimal text. This is both a strength and a weakness of the app. On the one hand, you can open the Daily Drive each morning and swiftly ingest an inspirational text to dwell on through the day. On the other hand, the texts can be pithy and superficial or cliched due to the lack of any exposition or significant content. For instance, the app will tell you that there are people like you, who make their own opportunities. Are you a person who makes your own opportunities? If not, the app won't tell you how; instead it tells you that this is the type of person you are. I suppose if you set the day moving with that mindset then maybe, just maybe, you will be.

You can have this app for $0.99 yourself for iOS or Android. The iOS version was received and reviewed but the Android version is functionally equivalent.
