The Productive Pomodoro
I very rarely come across a life-changing tool or app. I had heard of the pomodoro technique for years before I tried it, which because of it’s simplicity, I had just totally disregarded.

Apple Launches New iPad Pro
In March, Apple revealed it’s new iPad Pro 9.7” tablet, a downsize of their 12.9” iPad Pro and inline with the size of previous iPads.
The new iPad Pro 9.7” has the same appearance, finish and thickness as the iPad Air 2, but the new edition outshines every model when it comes to battery live – boasting 10 hours of usage.
The greatest feature of this new iPad though is it’s compatibility with the new Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard. These new exciting tools present us with great opportunities for the future (we’ve already got one and it’s fantastic).
If you own a website or mobile app, we suggest you test it on the new iPad Pro’s to ensure compatibility. If you need a hand with this, we can help.
