Great Little Place

Think of this app as your own personal little black book of magical places. It enables users to find and share locations, from quirky bars and restaurants to theatres, museums and galleries around the world. The founders say they are “building the last city guide you’ll ever need”. Invaluable if you’re off on an out-of-town adventure this Bank Holiday.


Do you love discovering and reading great books? Then this digital book club is for you. Each week it offers members a handpicked selection of outstanding titles chosen by well-known writers, cultural figures and the expert Alexi editorial team, all of which are available to read on the app.

Oh She Glows

Raise your game at your lunch or dinner gatherings with this award-winning recipe app. From Angela Liddon, the writer of the New York Times best-seller, The Oh She Glows Cookbook, it includes over 140 plant-based recipes, gorgeous photography and some seriously tasty inspiration.


You know the drill: you hear of a great restaurant/film/shop/website/hotel and you hastily make a note of it on a scrap of paper that you never read again. But with the Soon app, all of your want-to-dos are collated and kept in lists. You can see what cool stuff is trending in your area, too, and what your friends are adding to their bucket lists.
