Apps to make your life easier and more enjoyable.


Amazon credit card reader

Amazon has unveiled a new mobile card reader, pushing the online retailer deeper into payment services. This new service, called Local Register, will allow businesses to swipe credit and debit cards using their mobile devices along with the reader and a mobile app.


Hanx Writer

Actor, director, producer, and writer Tom Hanks – known as a champion of the manual typewriter – has collaborated with Hitscents to release the Hanx Writer app. The app provides the ease and speed of an iPad with the sound and pace of a manual typewriter. Download on iTunes store.



Spire is the smart tracker that could actually make you healthier, happier, and more productive! A tall order? Just clip the petite ‘stone’ (though it’s as light as a pen) to your belt, and it measures and visualises your breathing in real-time on its companion app, showing whether you are focused, tense, or simply worn out.



Wink enables users to connect all their smart appliances and products in a single streamlined app. It can connect to smoke alarms, lights, locks, garage doors, blinds, air conditioning, and more – from brands such as Schlage, Kidde, and Philips, with support for more products and automation.


The Sunrise Calendar

A free, fast, and beautiful timekeeper designed to make your life easier, this calendar app works across Google Calendar, iCloud, and Exchange.
