Winner of the Apple Design Award, Storehouse turns a collection of photos or videos into a shareable story. With the ability to add up to 50 photos and videos to each page, you can create a gallery to share with friends and family, with pictures that would just be taking up space. It even generates an embed code for your blog, and you can also distribute it to all major social media sites.

Free, Apple iOS,


Thanks to MindNode, brainstorming is no longer just for whiteboards – now, you can doodle your ideas down on your smartphone. MindNode’s clean interface allows users to create mindmaps of any size. With two modes for brainstorming and organising, the app is a great time-saver, and a great way to generate ideas on the go.
