What (not) to wear

How many collective hours have we all lost agonising over the right amount of layering for our changeable weather, or if those suede sandals will ever see the light of day?

Carrot Weather isn’t just great at telling you what the weather’s going to be like where you are, it’s also really funny. The interface is colourful, the sarcastic chatbot’s reports are incredibly accurate but also full of personality (you can set it to snarky, or homicidal among others). If you check the weather each day then this app will keep things snappy and entertaining.

Master that to-do list

Making a list is a great way to focus on what’s important and break projects up into more manageable actions – and that’s where Things 3 excels.

Essentially, it’s a digital to-do list but it can be as simple or nuanced as you need. It’s easy to add an action to your list, then tag activities as more or less urgent and set a deadline. The app also allows for recurring deadlines and larger-scale projects. Tap the checkbox on screen to tick off another job well done.
