Peter uses an iPhone 4s for daily use and lists his top 7 Apps as follows:
– – – – –
Timeful: Helps you actually do those things you keep saying you should do, but never find the time. Get fit, learn a language, meditate, whatever. It uses behavioural science to place to-dos and good habits into your day based on your available time, location and your past plans & successes.
Hyperlapse: Brilliantly simple user experience combined with some fiendishly sophisticated technology. The beautiful time-lapse videos it creates makes it the first app in a while that might actually make Android users jealous of our iPhones again.
Mindly: The closest thing to a blank whiteboard and marker you can get on your mobile. It’s a simple interface that makes it surprisingly easy to create complex mind maps wherever inspiration strikes.
Citymapper: The only transport app you’ll ever need for getting around London. The journey planner that considers cabs through Hailo, bike and car routes, or any combination of public transport (buses / tube / overground / even the Thames Clipper!). I’m a big fan of the personal dashboard with live departure times for your local bus stop or train station.
Jinn: Get anything from any store in London delivered to your house in under an hour, from groceries to sneakers to restaurant food. What’s not to love?
Flickr: With a terabyte of free storage, the ability to auto-sync my photos to Flickr is great – it helps me free up space on my iPhone without the hassle of hooking up to my Macbook and manually copying everything across. If I need an old photo later, I can download it at full resolution from Flickr, complete with EXIF data.

Some great ones there, thanks Peter! I’m pleased to see Peter is a Citymapper fan too. I just love that app. And I’m really interested to see that he’s a big fan of Jinn. Now that I’m not doing much work in London at the moment, I really haven’t had the opportunity to use it yet. I’m going to try and use it the next time we record a 361 Degrees podcast. Thanks again Peter!
