With all the kids now back at school, time will be precious- and any timesaving applications are always welcomed!

This one is welcomed even more by me as its free. Handy for a meal out, local playgroups, nurseries. you name it.
I'm very impressed with this and can see it being useful when I'm out and about and not got access to my newspaper or not having the time to google.

We have a FANTASTIC mobile app to meet the busy back to school rush that parents face- the application is called Poynt and is completely free!
