I’m back with more fun finds for April. I know you’re ready to see what I’m going to pull out of my digital bag of internet treats– or my Mary Poppins tote of tech tools, if you will. There will never be an end to the extensions and sites! They’ll just keep coming, and I’ll just keep being here for you every month, delighting you with new and exciting sites and extensions you may not know. Let’s take a look at what April brings us.


Chrome Extensions to Try

Forest. Is it time to get focused? If you like to block off your time to work in chunks, this extension may be your new favorite. As you stay focused and complete a chunk of time, it plants a tree visually. Depending on how productive you are in a day, you could end up with a forest. You can even keep track by writing descriptions of what you accomplish.

Memorize!. Although it can be frowned upon to memorize and not grasp the learning, there are some times when you need to just memorize something. Or maybe you find joy in knowing a lot of facts and random information? Memorize! can be great for recall. Input a list of questions and answers, and set up time frames to get asked questions. It’s a nice way to build in memorization and recall throughout your day.

Posture Reminder. According to Harvard Health, we have a posture problem, America. To combat this growing issue, here’s an extension built to remind you to correct your posture. Sometimes, a simple reminder is all it takes to correct this bad habit. You set the interval of reminders and there is a simple on and off switch for times when you just feel like being a slouch.

Thyself. This extension is here to help you conquer your mental health. Thyself prompts you throughout the day to look within and ask yourself mindful questions about your day, how you are feeling, reflect on your mood, and more. It keeps track of your responses to create a mood diary. If you’re focusing on self-care, this is a great tool to help you discover the little things contributing to how you’re feeling.

Vexel 5 Game. Check out this 2D game filled with a labyrinth of traps and devices. If you enjoy puzzles and obstacles, you’ll enjoy this extension when you need a brain break. Fair warning, you will lose several times before completing a level. However, that is is the ultimate goal. Because Vex 5 was created with the intention of getting people to accept failure and keep trying.

Must-Visit Websites

Patatap. Looking to fill time with sounds? Patatap has got you covered. This website plays sounds and animations based on the keys you press. It’s more addictive than you think and quite enjoyable for those that just love to tap on the keyboard.

Not Always Right. Have you heard the phrase “The Customer is Always Right?” Well, this site is here to tell you stories of how that just isn’t true. It’s a great collection of stories from every facet of life proving that the customer is not always right.

Cool Things. This website is the curator of the latest and greatest of gadgets, gear, gifts, inventions, furniture, and other awesome stuff you never knew existed. It’s definitely one of those sites to spark cool gift ideas that you won’t find anywhere else.

As always, I hope you found something in this list delightful. If you did, I’d love to hear about it!

Love the article. I think the link to Patatap is incorrect. It should be https://patatap.com/.
