TenFold

Liberty has partnered with the Mindset Network to deliver Maths and Physical Science education to learners across South Africa using a mobile app called TenFold Education. It offers educational content and extra learning material for learners in grades 10 to 12.

In the 1990s, millions of school children tuned into the Liberty Learning Channel to watch William Smith and other educators teach Maths and Physical Science in a studio, using a projector. While this format was relevant back then, the learning landscape today has completely evolved.

In addition to TenFold, a 60-minute interactive television show airs on DSTV Channel Mindset TV. It offers a full learning experience aligned to the CAPS curriculum, and is broadcast every day during school terms. The content on the TenFold App provides interactive nuggets of the same information, and houses hundreds of hours of instructional video resources, and exam style assessments.

Platform: Android and iOS

Expect to pay: A free download

Uber ICEplus

Using Uber safely starts with riders checking their ride details. But what happens when an accident or an incident happens on a trip? With safety being a number one priority for Uber, it has provided features to keep riders safe from before your trip starts to after it ends, ensuring transparency and traceability. One such feature is the in-app emergency button which is available to riders during trips in any safety-related incidents.

This feature, which is provided by ICEplus, a mobile panic button solution, can be found in Uber’s safety toolkit, making it easily accessible for riders on their home screen.

Where safety is compromised, riders can call for assistance directly from the Uber app by tapping the shield icon on the map. Once the in-app button has been activated, riders will be connected to ICEplus Incident Management Centre, where a consultant will assess the nature of the safety incident and either dispatch a third-party private security company or medical response team to the rider’s location. The ICEplus agent will stay on the line with riders until they are safe.

KLM’s Travel Guide

Alexa users can go in search of the KLM destination best suited to them using KLM’s Travel Guide. The app offers inspiration as well as personal advice in terms of flight duration, budget, travel dates and specifications, such as a “city trip” or “beach holiday”. 

Based on this information, KLM suggests the destination that best fulfils the passenger’s wishes, along with the ticket price and a short description. This KLM service is available on all speakers running the Alexa operating system, with or without a screen.

Platform: Available on any device using the Alexa OS
