Looking for Mr. or Ms. Right can be a hard and time-consuming task. Not to speak about the fact that ‘Single’ or ‘Not single’ isn’t written on people’s foreheads. Everyone has heard of dating websites such as Match.com, apps like Tinder and concepts such as speed dating, but they all have one disadvantage in common: they primarily focus on looks. Enter: Puzme!
Frequent readers of this blog know that we like healthy food at Cleverwood. That’s why we started thinking about growing our own vegetables, which inspired us to take a look at a few mobile gardening applications during lunch. We wanted to see how they could help us, and ended up picking 3 applications we found worth taking a closer look at.
We always hear about losing weight for the summer, recovering your silhouette for the holidays, following a special diet after Christmas, … But what about living healthy each day of your life?

To kick off our 2014 #appslunch sessions, we explored the world of mobile banking and tested 5 Belgian mobile banking apps. Our approach was to test the apps only on mobile devices – no tablets – focusing on the Big Five: KBC, ING, AXA, Belfius and BNP Paribas (we did not include Hello Bank). Next to the Big Five we took a look at Keytrade Bank to see how a smaller bank compares to the big ones but – because of its different focus (online, business, investments) – we did not include this bank in the infographic comparison. Have a look at our infographic for a comparison and read our extensive impressions below.
Earlier this week we organized another appslunch, our concept where we discuss mobile and/or tablet applications with Cleverwood consultants during lunch. This time, Raphael Halberthal joined us to share his view on the applications business and of course his own application company Maily.
For this year’s last #appslunch, we decided that everyone at the table could talk about one application that he or she has been using recently. Let us guide you through an overview of the best ones! Shopilly: Because we feel it is worth sharing, for once we included a desktop application: Shopilly. Without a doubt the best one of this appslunch session. As you already know by now, at Cleverwood we strive to be a zero e-mail company. With Shopilly, you can create one specific e-mail address and use it to subscribe to all your newsletters. It collects all newsletters for you and stores them in a nice and friendly design. You also have the option to link a Yahoo mail, Gmail or Hotmail account as well as have Shopilly automatically import commercial messages. Goodbye dirty mailbox! We strongly recommend them to make a mobile version

Last week, Tanguy De Lestré, founder of Mobile Monday Brussels visited the Cleverwood offices. During lunch, we took the opportunity to discuss a few applications we discovered lately. An improvised mobile apps lunch indeed! We talked about Recettes 4saisons, BetterStreet, InstaPlace and (of course) the Mobile Monday application.
