I frequently recommend some of the apps I use on my Mac to other people, and generally get a positive reaction. However, I’ve never really written about them on this blog.
From tomorrow, that changes. For the next few weeks, I’ll be writing about a different desktop app that I love each week. It will appear online on a Wednesday morning, and will continue for as long as I have an app in mind that I use regularly, really love, and want to recommend (about ten weeks, I imagine). I hope you’ll enjoy it.
I’m also working on my “personal canon”, inspired by Robin Sloan’s excellent Fish (and David Cole’s excellent example). That won’t include apps, but I am planning to include books, music, and television alongside weblinks. That’s probably a few weeks away from being finished (or, as finished as the first iteration will ever be), so keep an eye out for that.

So I wondered if you know of a new free Visit Stratford App that’s been launched this week for visitors nationally and internationally. Stratford City, as it is now known, has changed and it’s a new place of discovery, vibrancy and excitement ahead of the Olympics.
The free App lists over 500 shops, attractions, places to eat, bars, restaurants, children’s activities and hotels to help you plan your day out in Stratford. It also includes:
* Live tube, bus and DLR information
* Interactive map and audio walking guide
* 2012 Games information
* Digital postcards to send to your friends
* Interactive features showing Stratford’s future
* What’s on guide
You can visit http://www.stratfordlondonapp.com to download the app and watch a video of the app in action.
Please do share your thoughts.
