Nicolas uses the iPhone 4 and let’s have a look at his list…

Italian Larousse: My wife is Italian but my vocabulary is very rusty. This app is a convenient way for me to learn new words on the go until eventually I can become ‘piu esperti’ (that’s expert in Italian!).
Windfinder: Kite-surfing is one of my favourite ways to unwind on holiday. Windfinder allows me to find the perfect place and conditions to surf so I can make the most of my free time – or to stay in my hammock if there is no decent wind!
Better Leisure Centre: I am a keen tennis player and this app has made it so much easier for me to book courts at my leisure centre and stay on top of my game. It makes playing tennis at my club so easy.
Nike Running: My team here at Arqiva are all fitness fanatics – we have triathlon runners, cyclists and some even compete in “ironman” challenges. We are all motivated individuals – both when it comes to work and physical fitness –and the Nike Running app is very user friendly, allowing me to track my sessions and fitness progress.
Michelin Restaurants: We all know that good meals matter! This is a great app to find the right restaurant when you are in a place you don’t know – such as the very good pub just next to Emley Moor!
Shazam: It’s always exciting when you hear a great song and can find its name and download it, or when you can’t remember the name of an old one you are listening to! Shazam is a great app which means as long as I have my phone on me I can find the song’s details within 3 seconds.
Le Monde: I like to stay in touch with news stories in my home country, which are often quite surprising.

Thanks to Nicolas for his list of apps. I’ve just got back into running myself so I’m using the Nike Running app a lot at the moment. Also Shazam saves me from a lifetime of trying to type in lyrics to google – which are never right!
