Who can imagine a working world without Slack? I certainly can’t. Slick, fun to use, and time-saving to boot.

Check out Slack.


I would get nothing done if it wasn’t for Wunderlist.



A Welsh proptech company founded by a former fellow Welsh ICE-er, TrackMyMove is an idea every home buyer (including me) has had – they just haven’t managed to make it a reality.

Owen Derbyshire’s web app wants to revolutionize the way we buy and sell homes, bringing together estate agents, solicitors and buyers/sellers in one easy app. It’s still in beta, but we can’t wait to see how it’ll disrupt the things in home buying.

We love drinking beer almost as much as we love building brewery websites (almost…) so obviously we love Untappd. You can track which beers you’re drinking, rate them and share them with friends as well as find great beers in your area.

Find your new favourite beer!

Marvel Creativity Studio

This one is out of the realms of possibility – unless we fancy breaching copyright and getting sued, that is. Marvel wins over DC any day, and this app lets you learn how to draw your favourite Marvel heroes even if you don’t have an artistic bone in your body.

Check it out on the App Store


There are lots of things to love about this app. It’s gorgeous, gamified, and makes picking up the basics of a language easier than anything else we’ve tried.

Perché non imparare ad imparare una nuova lingua?


I’m always on the hunt for a smart app to help manage my emails, and at the moment I’m committed to Spark. Not only does it manage my emails, it lets me snooze them when I want to ignore them and flag them to a more focused inbox to look at later.

Really worth checking out here


Mountain biking is my second love, there's nothing I like more than hitting the trails and pulling some gnarly whips ( I don't usually talk like this, honestly). One of the best apps out there for tracking your ride is Stava, not only can you see your route, time, effort and speed but you can compare how quick (or slow in my case) you fair against others tackling the same sections of trail. Rad!
