Best Apps For Iwatch Series 5

Best new Apple Watch app: FiLMiC Firstlight

FiLMiC Firstlight
$7.99 / £6.99 / AU$12.99
FiLMiC Firstlight has been around for a while now – the first version came out in 2019 – but this version, 1.3, is the first time there’s been an Apple Watch app to go with it. The Apple Watch app doesn’t exactly do much: it’s just a shutter app that enables you to see what your phone sees and take a photo – but it’s what it connects to that matters here.

FiLMiC is best known for its FiLMiC Pro, the heavy-duty video recording app. Firstlight takes some of the same tech but uses it more for photography, with a range of film simulations, film grain, and options to deliver incredibly impressive photography without having to spend ages editing it post-shooting.

On the iPhone XR onwards you can adjust the HDR, and for all iPhones you can configure the focus and exposure controls, switch aspect ratios, shoot in burst mode, and much more.

It’s important to clarify what Firstlight is and isn’t. It’s not a photo editor; it’s all about getting the perfect shot ready and capturing it instantly – so you’d get the various settings just-so and then take the shot from your iPhone or the Apple Watch app. If that’s the kind of shooting you prefer, you’re going to love this app.

Best Apple Watch apps for fitness and health
There’s no denying that the main thrust of the Apple Watch since the second model is for fitness: it’s packing GPS, heart rate, water resistance and improved sensors to make the most of the fact people like to work out with this thing – it even connects to gym equipment.

This list of Apple Watch fitness, running, wellbeing and health apps are nearly all must-have – if you’re going to do one thing with your new Watch, use it to become a healthier you in mind and body.

Water tracker – Waterful

Water tracker – Waterful
Free / IAPs
One of the things the Apple Watch is really good for is tracking little things, the kind of things you probably wouldn’t reach for your phone to record. For example, its automated workout detection means we record fitness data we wouldn’t otherwise think about. It’s the same with things like hydration: we really can’t be bothered picking up our phone to track every single bottle of water or cup of coffee, but we’re happy to quickly tap our Apple Watch while we sip.

Waterful isn’t the only hydration tracker on the App Store, but it’s one of the friendliest: we particularly like the main display, which uses a nice design to show you exactly what you’ve been filling yourself up with and how well you’re doing against your daily hydration target.

It integrates with the Health app and Siri Shortcuts, and it’s also available as complications for compatible Watch faces, so for example you can have a circular dial in the center or a percentage and total in a larger complication.

The core app is free to try and subscription-based if you decide to stick with it; you can pay monthly at $0.99 / £0.99 / AU$1.49 per month, but a lifetime subscription is only $9.99 / £8.99 / AU$14.99.

Thirstic: Smart Water Tracker

(Image credit: Tapcode)
$7.99 / £7.49 / AU$12.49 per year
There are many water intake trackers on the App Store, but Thirstic – ahem – drinks differently. That’s because it learns the patterns of your life and monitors the weather conditions to calculate a daily dynamic water intake goal.

So if you go to the gym on a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, Thirstic will learn that and adjust your hydration targets and notification frequency accordingly; if the days get hotter, Thirstic will take that into account too.

It’s a clever idea, and there’s some more good thinking on show here: the app doesn’t send your data to remote servers, but uses your Watch’s integration with the Health app on your phone instead. You can also fine tune the parameters to suit your own preferences, so for example you can disable the weather forecast integration or make the activity sensing more or less sensitive.

There are no ads, and the interface is simple, straightforward, and most importantly of all, fast and easy to use. There’s also a good selection of charts and data when you open up the iPhone app. Thirstic is free to try and then you can choose between a monthly, annual or lifetime subscription. At the time of writing, an annual subscription is $7.99 / £7.49 / AU$12.49.

Tempo: Run & Walk Fitness Log

Tempo: Run & Walk Fitness Log
Free / IAPs
Tempo is popular with runners and walkers thanks to its intelligent analysis and excellent Apple Watch integration: it can get data from any fitness tracking app that logs data to Apple’s Health app, and then provide analysis of your performance. We’re pleased to see that the app also works for wheelchair users.

Earlier this year the app added Personal Bests to show you your fastest times, and in the latest update Tempo has added Goals. Goals enable you to set a distance goal, and that goal can be for a single workout or for multiple ones.

So for example if you’d like to follow the lead of The Proclaimers to walk 500 miles and then walk 500 more, you can set that goal in Tempo and it’ll track your progress even if you use other apps to monitor your walk or run in real time.

The app enables you to tag your workouts in all kinds of ways: you can even see if a particular pair of running shoes have affected your performance. You can also add Tempo calculations to many of your Apple Watch faces so you can see your progress.

Like most fitness tracking apps Tempo is subscription-based, but unlike many there isn’t a confusing range of options: there’s a single subscription plan of $9.99 / £9.49 / AU$15.99 per month.

Arm Speed Analyzer

Arm Speed Analyzer
Free / in-app purchases
How fast is your arm? If you play ball or racket sports, if you’re a golfer, a frisbee fan or a hockey player, Arm Speed Analyzer can tell you how fast you can move and how quickly you accelerate. That means you can use it for golf swings and tennis serves, baseball or cricket pitching, frisbee throwing, hockey stick swinging, or anything else that involves speedy throwing, swinging, sweeping or hitting.

Arm Speed Analyzer claims to be the most accurate speed tracking app that uses your Apple Watch’s accelerometer to track speed and acceleration.

Using the app is fast and simple. It shows you four key pieces of information: your real time speed and acceleration, your most recent speed and acceleration, your personal best top speed and your previous session’s top speed. The app also records your history so you can go back and see how much you’ve improved over time and how consistent your speeds have become.

Although the app is called Arm Speed Analyzer, it can also analyse your kicks – although we wouldn’t recommend doing it publicly in case someone thinks the Apple Watch strapped to your ankle is an electronic tag for offenders.

Watch to 5K

Watch to 5K
$2.99 / £2.99 / AU$4.49
If lockdown has got you thinking about fitness, Couch to 5K is a great way to get into shape – and if you’re thinking about Couch to 5K, then Watch to 5K is a great way of tracking it. The app is designed for absolute beginners who want to work towards running a 5K over a period of 9 weeks, and it creates a training plan of three runs per week for nine weeks.

The schedule will be different for every week, and if you complete all nine weeks you should be able to achieve 5K in under 30 minutes.

The app can work on its own, which is one of the reasons its creator made it: he was fed up with 5K training apps that needed you to lug your iPhone along for the run. So he wrote one that didn’t. It provides key metrics such as your distance traveled, your average pace, your calories burnt, and your heart rate, and all the details of your workouts are stored in Apple’s Health app.

As you’d expect your runs are tracked and count towards your goals in the Fitness app, and you can record your route to review it later. We like this app a lot: it’s a simple, useful, and effective app from an independent developer who spotted a problem and wrote an app to solve it.

Time to Walk
Time to Walk

Free with Apple Fitness Plus
Time to Walk is a new and really rather inspired idea for Apple Fitness Plus subscribers: it enables you to go for a long walk while listening to a notable figure tell their story. As Apple puts it:

“Each Time to Walk episode is shaped by the guest’s personal, life-shaping moments and includes lessons learned, meaningful memories, thoughts on purpose and gratitude, moments of levity, and other thought-provoking topics, recorded while walking outside or in locations that are meaningful to them. The narrative comes to life through photos that appear on Apple Watch, perfectly timed to amplify a corresponding moment the guest shares.”

If you’re a wheelchair user, Time to Walk will become Time to Push and will automatically start an Outdoor Wheelchair Walk Pace workout.

There are four guests at the time of writing: the legendary Dolly Parton, NBA star Draymond Green, musician Shawn Mendes and Orange Is The New Black star Uzo Aduba.

There will be new episodes every Monday until the end of April 2021, and they will be downloaded automatically if you have a Fitness Plus subscription, appearing automatically in the Workout tab on your Apple Watch Fitness app. Each episode will be 25 to 40 minutes long and will come with a music playlist to keep you walking or pushing afterwards.

Most of the Apple Watch apps in the health and fitness category are trackers of some kind: step trackers, calorie trackers, cycle trackers and so on. Moodistory is a tracker too, but it’s interested in your mental state rather than your physical performance.

The newly added Apple Watch companion app means it’s one of the fastest ways to record your mood and give it context, and it’s designed for sheer speed of entry: if you want to leave detailed notes that’s best left to the iPhone app. On your Watch you just tap and go.

Mood tracking can be very useful for people whose mental state has its ups and downs, or for people who want to get an understanding of the patterns that may shape their moods.

By recording how you feel over a period of time you can begin to see if there are particular trends, and if you’re also including contextual information that information can help you identify any triggers that might bring you down or lift you up. You can even collate the information and output it in PDF form from the iPhone app, which may be useful if you’d like to share your mood history with a counsellor or other qualified professional.

Heart Analyzer

Heart Analyzer
Free / IAPs
We featured version 7 of Heart Analyzer back in 2019 and liked it a lot. Version 8 is new for 2020 and it’s a very big update – especially on iPhone, where it has a brand new and very nice user interface.

Unfortunately the Apple Watch’s display is rather limited compared to the phone, but while the Watch component isn’t quite as pretty as the new iPhone app, it’s still very effective and makes good use of the available space.

On your wrist, Heart Analyzer v8 comes with improved, customizable complications for the Infograph faces so that you can have your heart rate chart right there in front of you. The Watch app offers live heart rate monitoring and trend charts, weekly metrics and workout views, and it can also record calories burned and distance traveled. As you’d expect, it integrates well with Apple Health.

Things are even more impressive on iPhone, where you can view personalized metrics such as day/night resting heart rates, average heart rates, and historical data going back years. The new interface makes everything much clearer and achieves the tricky balance of giving you lots and lots of data without being overwhelming.

Strava: Run & Ride Training

(Image credit: Strava, Inc.)
Strava: Run & Ride Training
Free with in-app purchases
Strava needs no introduction for serious fitness fans: it’s one of the world’s top fitness apps for runners, cyclists and swimmers, as well as gym-goers, kayakers and yoga practitioners. The latest version brings proper support for the Apple Watch, enabling you to sync workouts and activities you’ve recorded with Apple’s Workout app with the Strava app and its online tracking, to build a better overall picture of your fitness activities.

Strava is on a constant update cycle, so just days after the Apple Watch sync was introduced there was another update with improved stroke analysis for swimmers and better cadence analysis for runners; two weeks previously there were new features for skiers and for activity sharing, as well as a bunch of interactive 3D maps.

The big selling point of Strava is its social aspect, which elevates it above other GPS-enabled fitness apps: you can compare your performance not just with yourself but with other users, you can compete to become the king or queen of particular geographical leaderboards, and you can share with friends and followers to get encouraging words and helpful feedback.

The best bits are in the Premium subscription, which is fairly cheap by fitness-app standards: it’s currently $5.99/£5.99/AU$9.99 a month or $59.99/£44.99/AU$89.99 a year.

Hole19 Golf GPS & Scoring

Hole19 Golf GPS & Scoring
Free (in-app purchases)

Hole19 claims to be the most-used golf GPS range finder in the UK, with more than 10 million rounds registered, and it claims to be as accurate as a real caddie – although it doesn’t specify which one.

As is usually the case with sports apps the bulk of the work is done by the iPhone app, with the Apple Watch companion providing just the essential features and information you need while you’re on the green.

The main app offers two key tools: GPS range finding so you can see how far you are from your goal as well as any hazards, and a digital scorecard that you can use to track your stats over time.

On your watch, it shows you the distance to the front, center and back of the green; swipe and there’s an input screen where you can track your performance. It’s all very simple and straightforward, enabling you to track your playing without distracting you for too long.

The usefulness of the app depends mainly on whether it knows about the course(s) you want to play. Hole19 knows over 42,000 courses in 201 countries, so yours should be covered, but the app’s free to try so you can make sure it’s right for you before signing up for a subscription.

Seven – 7 Minute Workout

(Image credit: Perigee)
Seven – 7 Minute Workout
What can you do in seven minutes? You could listen to one and a half pop songs. You could watch one-tenth of an episode of Game of Thrones. Or you could change your life. That’s what Seven promises. It’s an app based on the idea that anybody can get much fitter if they can spare just seven minutes a day. No gym memberships, no equipment, just you and your Apple Watch.

We’d recommend starting with the phone, though: it shows you how to do each exercise properly, something the Apple Watch’s screen isn’t big enough for. There’s no point knocking yourself out for your seven minute stretch if you’re doing it wrong and causing more harm than good. Once you know what you need to do though you can rely on your Watch to time your exercises and breaks and to record your activity.

The app is easy to use, packed with useful exercises and provides good visual feedback and motivation. You can compete with your friends or just earn in-app achievements, and if you sign up for the $9.99/£9.99/AU$14.99 monthly subscription you get access to over 200 exercises to keep your regime interesting. By enabling you to exercise anytime, anywhere, Seven might just help you get the exercise habit.

Swing Tennis Tracker

(Image credit: Mangolytics Inc.)
Swing Tennis Tracker
Built for serious tennis players under the guidance of Andy Roddick and James Blake, Swing Tennis Tracker is designed to analyze your swings as well as record your stats. It isn’t just a solo app: it can also sync scores with other Apple Watch users on the court. There’s excellent Siri integration for starting matches and practice, integration with the Activity and Health apps, and excellent visual feedback to show you how hard you’re hitting.

The Watch component concentrates on the recording and feedback, while the phone app takes care of scores, stats and video, as well as providing action advice after each hit. It’s a great app for individual players but it can also be used by parents, coaches and in teams, to track others’ performance too.

There are two subscription plans, the $4.99/£4.49/AU$7.99 per month Premium and the $9.99/£9.49/AU$15.49 Pro. The former unlocks historical statistic graphics, head-to-head records against non-Swing users and unlimited analysis graphs for each session, while the Pro subscription adds video lessons from tennis pros and intelligent analysis of your performance that identifies key areas for improvement after each session.

Nike Run Club

Nike Run Club
The ongoing love-fest between Nike and Apple continues to bear fruit: the latest iteration of the Nike Run Club app introduces some welcome improvements.

It now integrates with Siri Suggestions, which means the app can now suggest good times for a run based on your previous runs (the feature is off by default so it won’t nag you if you don’t want it to), and there are new Apple Watch complications including one for the Infograph face that shows how far you’ve run this month.

There’s hardly a shortage of running apps in the App Store but Nike’s budget is a bit higher than most, so the app feels a lot more premium than many others. It tracks and stores all your runs thanks to your Watch’s built-in GPS, enables you to listen to audio guides as you run, offers a range of challenges to keep you motivated and has good social sharing features, so you can turn your friends into cheerleaders.

It’s very well designed and the Watch app doesn’t sacrifice substance for style: while visually it’s very attractive it also shows all the information you actually need as you’re pounding the pavements. It’s a really good running app.

Nike Training Club

Nike Training Club
Nike and Apple are best friends forever, so it’s not a huge surprise to see Nike unveil another Watch app. This one’s really good, too. Describing itself as “your ultimate personal trainer”, Nike Training Club has more than 180 workouts covering strength, endurance, mobility and yoga, and they’re all free. There are daily personalized picks based on your previous activity, flexible training plans to help you achieve your fitness goals, and tips from top trainers.

The app splits jobs between phone and Watch. The former is where you do the planning and tracking; the latter is what you wear while you’re actually working out. By necessity as well as design that means focusing only on the information you really need right now, such as your heart rate and how many reps you still have to do before you can undo all your efforts with some cake and beer.

The app is by no means unique in its combination of Watch and workout tracking, although it does have Nike’s immediately recognizable and individual visual style. But what’s significant about this app is that none of its many workouts are hidden behind in-app purchases or pricey subscriptions. Everything in the app is free.


Free + in-app purchases
If you’ve ever felt that life is just that bit too busy or stressful, Headspace could help. It’s based around mindfulness, which is all about getting you to feel calmer without too much effort. In fact, it’s the opposite of effort: mindfulness is about taking a break from the rush.

The Apple Watch app is part of a wider offering for iPhone and iPad: it acts as a reminder and a coach, urging you to pick an exercise and focus on it for the allotted time. It also has an SOS mode for when things feel too much and you need help instantly. But it’s the main app that does most of the work, with daily mindfulness exercises and sessions designed to help with everything from workplace stress to sleep problems.

It’s very well done but one thing that might raise your stress levels is the cost: while the app is free to try it really needs a subscription to unlock its most useful features, and that subscription is $12.99/£9.99/AU$19.99 per month or $94.99/£74.99/AU$149.99 per year. That’s an auto-renewing subscription too, so you need to disable that in iTunes if you don’t want it to recur automatically.


Medical apps don’t just exist to persuade you that your mild headache is terminal brain cancer. They can help keep you healthy too. While WebMD does indeed let you compare your symptoms with various illnesses and conditions to scare yourself silly, that’s not the most interesting thing about it or its Watch companion app.

WebMD enables you to detail your medication schedules, with dosage information and the option to be reminded of what you need to take and when you need to take it. This can be in the form of a notification, or you can have it as a Watch face Complication so it’s right there in the middle of the display.

It can also remind you of any prerequisites, such as whether you need to take your medicine with food or on an empty stomach. It’s the sort of simple but very useful thing the Apple Watch does well.

Over on the main iPhone app there’s plenty more to discover. You can read up on the side effects and precautions of specific pills or patches, find out if you need to go hiding from the flu or just catch up on the latest health and wellbeing news from various credible sources.

Apps for apple watch series 3

autosleep watch
AutoSleep is our favorite app for adding automatic sleep tracking to the Apple Watch.

Apple finally added sleep tracking to watchOS 7, but it’s a little lackluster. It only works during specific designated Sleep Mode hours, and it doesn’t give you much insight into the quality of your sleep. Fortunately, better sleep tracking is not hard to add with an app like AutoSleep, Sleep Watch, Sleep++, or Pillow. There are several good sleep-tracking apps to choose from, but most require either a substantial in-app purchase to make proper use of, or a subscription that can really add up.

That’s one reason we like AutoSleep. Not only does it work well and give you lots of great data, it’s just one up-front (and reasonable) price. No hidden upgrade in-app-purchases, no subscriptions, no ads. Just three bucks to add quality sleep automatic sleep tracking to your Apple Watch.

AutoSleep ($3.99)

Carrot Weather
carrot weather apple watch
Carrot Weather isn’t free, but it’s great.

There are plenty of good weather apps—many of which support Apple Watch—but Carrot Weather may be our favorite. It combines excellent weather forecasting (with data from Weather Underground or Dark Sky), lots of customization, and even achievements. The snarky evil robot voice helps make weather fun.

Apple Watch support is especially robust, with several different complications available and the ability to customize them in the app. You can even use multiple different complications at once with watchOS 7, and widgets with iOS 14. Carrot Weather was one of the first third-party apps to make use of the new corner complications on Apple Watch Series 4, and it gives you a card on the Siri watch face, too.

The only downside is that the app costs $4.99, and on top of that you have subscribe to a Premium Club membership for $0.99 a month or $4.99 a year to get notifications and background updates on Apple Watch. The cost is to cover the increased API usage of its data sources for features like real-time precipitation warnings. And some features are locked behind even more expensive subscription tiers.

Carrot Weather ($4.99, in-app purchases)

1password watch
1Password makes it easier to use strong security.

Apple has gotten a lot better about making Keychain and iCloud work together with Safari and apps to manage passwords, but if you ever step outside the Apple ecosystem for anything, you really ought to use a third-party password manager. This is doubly true if you have family members who should all be using password managers but would like to share passwords for certain services (like Netflix, for example).

One of our absolute favorites is 1Password, which offers top-notch security and ease of use along with robust tools across multiple platforms.

On your Apple Watch, 1Password can quickly show you passwords, credit card details, notes, and one-time passwords (for 2FA). With macOS Big Sur, you can even unlock 1Password with your Apple Watch on any Mac with a Secure Enclave chip (think: Macs with a T2 chip or the new M1-based Macs).

There’s a free 30-day trial, but then you’ll have to shell out $3 a month for an individual plan or $5 for a family plan. It’s well worth it.

1Password (free, in-app purchases)

Tiny Armies
tiny armies watch
Not a lot of games are well-suited to the tiny Apple Watch display, but Tiny Armies makes it work.

There aren’t a lot of games made for Apple Watch. And for good reason, as not many game designs really lend themselves to the very limited screen space and interactions available in that form factor.

Tiny Armies is a good exception. It is available for iPhone, but the extremely compact and simple design of this clever strategy game really shine on the Apple Watch. If you’re looking for a fun little distraction next time you’re waiting in line and don’t want to pull out your iPhone, give Tiny Armies a try.

Tiny Armies ($0.99)

PB: Lost Phone Alert
pb lost iphone watch
All we want is the ability to get alerts on our Apple Watch when we leave our iPhone behind.

Don’t you wish your Apple Watch could warn you when you leave your iPhone behind? It could just kick off a notification whenever you leave Bluetooth range.

That’s essentially what Phone Buddy Lost Phone Alert does. It’s a little more sophisticated than that—you can set a threshold of Bluetooth strength and set various limits (like the strength of the alarm or disabling it when on home Wi-Fi). But in essence, this app asks you to pay $5 for a feature that we think Apple should just build into watchOS and iOS already.

Is it worth it? If you’re the kind of person who walks off with your iPhone more than you’d like to, you don’t need an answer to that question, you’re already in the app store throwing your money at it.

PB: Lost Phone Alert ($4.99)

things apple watch
It seems crazy to pay $10 for a task manager app, until you use it and it changes you life.

Things is one of the most well-received task managers around, and it’s easy to see why. It’s attractive, simple, clear, and easy to use. It does what any good task manager should: make it easy to jot down a new task, accomplish what you have to do today, and it stay out of your way the rest of the time. It’s an Apple Design Award winner, and it shows.

Things on the Apple Watch is great. Quickly add a to-do item to organize later on your iPhone. Look at today’s tasks, check off items as you do them, or postpone them for later with just a couple taps. It supports the Siri watch face, which is the perfect place to get daily task reminders.

Things isn’t cheap. At $9.99, it’s one of the more expensive iPhone apps of its type. But a really good task manager will save you time and help you get more done, without feeling frustrated and overwhelmed. That’s worth the price of a couple cups of coffee.

Things 3 ($9.99)

streaks apple watch
Streaks helps you build good habits trough repetition.

Whether you want to lose weight, eat healthier, learn a new skill, or build any new good habit, the key to success is repetition. Going to the gym once a week isn’t going to change you, no matter how hard you work out. You’ll never learn guitar if you practice until your fingers bleed only once a month.

Streaks is a simple way to create custom reminders to do something each day (it can track up to 12 daily tasks). It will remind you when it’s time to do the task, and even check off tasks related to the Health app data automatically.

The Apple Watch app gives you rich notifications, plenty of complications, and great icons and colors to use in your custom activities.

Streaks ($4.99)

citymapper apple watch
If you live in one of Citymapper’s supported cities, it is a must-have app.

Citymapper is an absolutely amazing transit app. It gives you bus and subway times, alerts you to service outages, helps you plot trips, and so much more. It works by grabbing public data feeds from dozens of city transit agencies. It’s won all kinds of App of the Year awards, and for good reason.

On Apple Watch it’s even better. With a glance at your wrist you can see where to go next, which bus or train to get on, and when it’s coming. It can be hard to fiddle with your phone on crowded transit, but a glance at your wrist can show you what stop you’re supposed to get off at.

The downside to Citymapper is that, since it relies on public transit data, it’s only available in a couple dozen cities. It’s perfect if you live in, or are traveling to, a huge metropolitan area, but not of much use to anyone else.

Citymapper (free, in-app purchases)

spotify apple watch
Spotify can stream directly from your watch, no iPhone needed.

An app like Spotify needs no introduction. It is arguably the most popular music streaming service in the world, and it has increasingly become the place where people listen to their favorite podcasts.

It has always been hard to recommend Spotify to Apple Watch enthusiasts, because it couldn’t stream music or podcasts on its own—you had to use your phone and merely control playback from your watch.

Now, as long as you’re a Spotify Premium user ($12.99 per month, though bundles and discounts exist), you can stream music and podcasts directly from the watch without your iPhone nearby. Just the thing for fitness enthusiasts who have a cellular model Apple Watch and like to go for a run or ride without their iPhone.

Spotify (free, in-app purchases)

Night Sky
night sky apple watch
Your Apple Watch can be a surprisingly useful astronomy tool.

Night Sky is one of our favorite iPhone and iPad apps. If you’ve ever looked up and wondered “what star or planet is that?” then Night Sky is for you. It does so much more, too. There are several slick AR modes, notifications for watching the international space station fly overhead, Siri Shortcuts… you don’t have to be an astronomy fan to fall in love with this app.

You might not think a sky chart on your watch would be useful, but you’d be wrong. Just raise your wrist to the sky and move it around to quickly find and identify objects in the sky. When your watch is down, it turns into a sort of “sky compass” that points you in the direction of stuff worth looking at. It’s almost like magic.
