There are a lot of times when you find yourself uninspired and completely uninterested. For those times, motivational apps in Android can do the trick and get you all geared up for work or study. If you find yourself slacking in bed all day long and don’t want to get off it, I don’t blame you, but if you really want to get moving, you need to try out one of these apps.
If you’ve been following Joy of Android for a while, you already know how lazy I am. There are some days where I just don’t want to work at all, but as an adult I have to force myself to do it.
Thankfully, the motivational apps can make me at least work for an hour before I go back to being lazy. One hour of hard work is all you need to shift into the right gear sometimes.
Note: The 5 best motivational apps for Android were tested on a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone and an extremely lazy writer. All of the apps worked perfectly fine and no problems were faced during testing. Some of the apps may require an active Internet connection.

Motivation 365 provides you with a large collection of motivational quotes, stories, and wallpapers. It is a very simple motivational app for Android with an intimately familiar material interface. Everything is presented right on the main screen with tabs dedicated to 3 categories.
The wallpapers are a great way to make your home screen positive. They are not only adorned with beautiful quotes but also have vibrant and lively images, so your home screen will bloom with motivation.
There are a lot of quotes available on the app as well; all of them are hand-picked by the curators.
If stories are more of your style, Motivation 365 provides numerous uplifting stories. You can even add a favorite item to bookmark, so that it is easily accessible when you need it.
I also really like the ability to save wallpapers directly to your phone storage, which makes it a lot easier to post them on social media as well as share them with friends.Show Downloads
Motivational Thoughts in Pics
I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan of the interface this app uses. However, the content of the images is wonderful and very uplifting; hence this app gets a place on the best motivational apps for Android list.
One of the biggest gripes is that the app squishes the images to fit a square design whereas the actual images are not meant to be squared off.
Motivational Thoughts has a lot of motivational quotes on images that are great to share with your friends and family. The app also provides you with thought of the day, so you can start on the right foot with proper enthusiasm. Sharing images on social media or any messaging app is really simple.
The app also allows you to copy images and paste them anywhere you want. The developers are actually pretty active in adding more thoughts every week, so you’ll never run out of motivational thoughts, that is until the developers abandon the app, which seems unlikely.Show Downloads
Best Motivational Stories
There’s something wonderful about reading motivational stories and gaining inspiration from them.
Best Motivational Stories brings you relatable stories that are uplifting and positive. There are thousands of motivational stories for you to read and get inspire from.
One of the best things about this app is the ability to share your own motivational story with the rest of the world. Similarly, you can read stories from other users as well.
One good thing about this app is the availability of a significant amount of motivational stories and quotes off-line. Sharing a story with your friends or family is also a matter of few taps on the screen.Show Downloads
ThinkUp: Positive Affirmations
ThinkUp: Positive Affirmations is a wonderful motivation app that helps you overcome challenges with positive affirmations.
Positive thinking is one of the best ways to stay motivated about everything in your life and this app is dedicated to that.
There is a professionally edited list that allows you to select affirmations. Alternatively, you can also record your own voice and listen to it whenever you need affirmations.
I highly recommend you to go this route because when you hear your own voice saying something positive, it has a greater impact. The app also allows you to set notifications about listening to the affirmations, this is an awesome way to keep yourself on track.
There are 300+ affirmations available on this app and they are divided into 10 different life goals. Whether you are overcoming anxiety or starting a new career, ThinkUp: Positive Affirmations is a companion app you will appreciate.Show Downloads
The best motivational apps for Android are a great way to reach your goals and stay motivated even after you achieve them. Yes, I’m fully aware that these apps are not some magic potion that will make you run marathons and write that novel you always wanted to; having these kinds of expectations from an app is unrealistic. But, these apps will at least nudge you in the right direction.
