TenFour check-in app

TenFour is a check-in application for teams. Because people talk on so many channels, it’s hard to reach them, particularly if one has a dispersed team or community, and particularly when it’s urgent.

If you are responsible for people, either as an HR manager, a principal, or a team leader, TenFour helps you quickly do daily check-ins, run quick polls, and answer the question “who needs help?” Unlike other check-in tools, TenFour can reach your team no matter how they communicate, be it by e-mail, SMS or messaging apps.

Platform: Android and iOS

Expect to pay: A free download.

MyPeugeot app

The MyPeugeot app is available across the Peugeot range of cars, and offers features like access to service history, personalised reminders & notifications, online after-sales service appointments, an interactive user manual for specific vehicles and easy access to dealerships and customer care.

The car’s VIN and a valid email address are required to get started. Once in the car, the driver connects  the MyPeugeot app to the car via Bluetooth, and is immediately shown fuel usage, average consumption and mileage. In case of any technical issues with the car, an alert will be displayed.

The location of a parked Peugeot can be also be saved and will be displayed on a map along with the driver’s current location, helping to find the car more easily when ready to return home. Or, more to the point, when the car has been stolen.

Platform: Only for Android or iOS users who drive a supported Peugeot.

Expect to pay: A free download.

YouTube Go

The recently launched YouTube Go app allows users to access videos on the go with low data usage. It has been built with an ‘offline first’ philosophy so that it works even when there’s low or no cellular connectivity. YouTube Go provides transparency on how data is being used, allowing one to reduce data consumption by changing the video resolution. It also provides a better social experience, allowing uses to share videos with other nearby devices using no data at all.

Platform: Android and iOS

Expect to pay: A free download.

Microsoft Kaizala

Microsoft Kaizala is a mobile app designed to improve the way businesses communicate and collaborate. It’s designed for large group communication, workflow management, reporting and analytics, and is integrated with Office 365.

Unlike other chat-based apps on the market, Kaizala extends beyond the communication function. Because many workers in the region often don’t have an email address, Kaizala only requires a mobile number to sign up. The app is also optimised to work on any network – including slow 2G networks.

Once installed, businesses can communicate with and manage an unlimited number of users. This includes employees, front-line workers, customers, suppliers and consumers. They can also share announcements, photos, videos or documents, run polls or surveys, assigning tasks and provide training content. In addition, businesses can gather rich insights from data with the app’s built-in analytics. These results can then be viewed in real-time.

Platform: Android and iOS

Expect to pay: A free download.

World of Lemmings – now on your Internet browser

Some game fans from the 90s will remember the classic World of Lemmings game – where you had to direct little men (Lemmings) through various worlds to get them home safely. In order to do this, one has to assign a Lemming to tunnel, dig, build a bridge or, in some cases, give them parachutes to stop them from plummeting to their death.

The idea of the game is to save as many as you can – you are allowed to kill off a few – let’s just call them war casualties. But, as you progress through the levels, time works against you, worlds get harder and in some cases no casualties are allowed.

Fast forward to 2018 and you can now play the game on the Internet through Dynamic Hypertext Markup Language. All you need is an up-to-date-browser and some patience, because these Lemmings are stupid.

Platform: A computer with an up-to-date-browser. Some smartphones will work, but the small screen makes things a little difficult.

Expect to pay: Free to play.

Stockists: Click here to play.
