App Review: Realworld – Simplify Adulthood


Adulting can be difficult, boring, or even overwhelming, but you may be missing a tool that will make your most daunting new duties finally achievable. This tool breaks down adult responsibilities into bite-size pieces that you can digest into success one piece at a time. Credit score, budgeting, income taxes, finding a place to live, and more are all explained for 20-somethings on the free Realworld app.

When you meet Realworld, it asks you to introduce yourself with your purpose for using the app, selecting which (or all) tasks listed you would like to learn more about, and then creating a dashboard for you, much like a to do list. Each task, like finding a dentist, for example, has an overview of the task, lessons on how to get it done, and products and resources recommended by professionals. You can track your progress as you read instructions, set due dates and reminders, and finally accomplish those not-so-scary tasks.

From there, you can use the search tab to explore dozens of other life skills that get more specific. This includes information on bills and claims, non-disclosure agreements, choosing a car and even cooking.

Whether it’s used as an occasional resource or a list-maker’s best friend, Realworld is a must have on your homescreen. Weed out all the conflicting advice online, organize your responsibilities in one place, and take information in small bites to begin a well-nourished, happy, healthy adulthood.
