Many interesting applications are also being created in the Netherlands and Belgium. In this monthly overview we bring to your attention the best Dutch iPhone apps. It’s a great addition to our weekly Missing Apps section, where you’ll find apps from all over the world. Most apps are new, but sometimes you’ll also find an app that has received a major update.

iCulture App of the Month: HabitScore
It’s hard to break old habits, but learning new ones isn’t easy either. The HabitScore iPhone app encourages you to complete tasks regularly until it slowly becomes a habit. For example, consider reading four books a month or playing an instrument every day. Through rewards, the app helps you stay motivated to work on your habits. HabitScore also has a widget to track your progress from the home screen.
Do you regularly forget to text a friend or wish your aunt a happy birthday? The Moments iOS app helps you maintain important relationships. Not only by sending you reminders, but also by helping you write letters or emails. No inspiration? The intelligent assistant does the hard work for you. You will also receive tips to enhance your social skills.
Have an online meeting on your Mac and want to show your iPhone screen to your colleagues? That’s exactly what you can do with the macOS Bezel app. Not only is your iPhone’s screen displayed on your Mac, but so is the casing of the device itself. You can choose your iPhone model from the list. The app supports all iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices with Lightning or USB-C, including the new iPhone 15 series.

Children spend more and more time online, and in addition to providing an educational environment, this also poses a risk. ChatLicense helps you gain insight into the less attractive side of the Internet, such as smartphone addiction, digital bullying, and fake news. The app was created for both children and their parents (grandparents), so that the whole family knows what (un)desirable digital behavior is and where the potential danger lies. The app does this through interactive game elements, such as quizzes. ChatLicense was developed in collaboration with Erasmus University and requires a paid subscription (starting at €40 per year).
Game nights are (usually) a lot of fun, but they also have drawbacks. Before you can start rolling the dice, there’s a hunt for pen and paper. Then someone (honestly) has to score. Pocket Plate changes that. The iPhone app makes it very easy to keep track of dozens of different games. To set the score, all you have to do is swipe (and sometimes tap). Also useful: In the Pocket Board you will also find a timer, dice and a bell to use in many games.
