Geronimo: A new email app with almost TOO MANY fresh ideas — From Mailbox to Hop, via Outlook's mobile apps, there's been no shortage of fresh takes on email over the past couple of years, and Geronimo - released today on iOS - is one of the most 'out there' example I've seen. Just take a look at the promotional video below.

How Nest Cam helped me care for my shiba inu after surgery — This is Arashi. She's a beautiful shiba inu dog - smart, tenacious and loving, and she lives with me. But sadly, her tenacity got the best of her last week when she stole and ate some corn cob and needed surgery to get it removed from her stomach.

Used to its full potential, Nest Cam could be a full home or small business security system. You could set up...

How I learned to stop worrying, and love GIFs and emoji — GIFs, emoji, stickers... they're taking over the internet. It took me a while to come to terms with the fact that it's okay if we use fewer words, but now I'm a flag-flying enthusiast. When they first started to become a mainstream part of internet communication, I really didn't like GIFs, emoji and stickers.

I used to think GIFs and emoji were cheesy, and best avoided. Then I changed my mind:

International technology news, business & culture — This week Foursquare added leaderboards back to its location sharing app Swarm. Our own Lauren Hockenson could just about raise a 'meh' at the news: "I spent about 9 months on Swarm before I had an epiphany one day: what am I even doing this for?

Patterning is an unbeatably fun, powerful way to make beats on your iPad — I love drum machines. There's something soothing about spending an hour or two building up an intricate beat, using a really hands-on interface with lots of buttons and knobs. My favorite drum machine of all is the Elektron Analog Rytm, a deep and powerful machine that you can spend many hours learning to master.

Amsterdam becomes a 'smart city' with The Things Network — Amsterdam is set to become a 'connected city,' with the launch of a new Internet-of-Things wireless network that will allow objects to transmit data between each other - and The Next Web is helping to bring it to life.

Knocker now makes it easy to explore the UK property market — Knocker started as an iOS app designed for a very specific situation - exploring the property market around you, wherever in the UK you happened to be. It was apparent that the neat-card based interface could work for other use cases though, so today, it's been expanded with a search feature that allows you to have a nosey at properties all over the country.

Neat update to lightweight UK property search/nosiness app Knocker today > helps independent workspaces take on the giants of the coworking world — Coworking spaces have seen something of a boom in recent years; you only have to look at the burgeoning empire that is WeWork or its Europe-based rivals TechHub and Central Working to see that. But there are plenty of independent spaces serving the enormous demand for shared workspaces.

Sources tell @brokenbottleboy that Mind Candy is winding down, but @acton denies it. Either way, there's change afoot

@holly There's an element of 'the grass is greener...' but I generally prefer iOS, which is a flip from 3 years ago when I was all Android

@iamsarahhay Trains to Brazil is in my top 20 songs ever, probably. I really like the Of the Night EP too.
