Apps and Websites of Note: Our Website Awards Team's Recommendations

Posted by Maggie Gallagher on Wed, Oct 01, 2014 @ 03:20 PM

Once a month in this space we highlight apps and websites that we think might help to make your workday a bit more productive or enjoyable.  Here are this month's suggestions.


An app that takes the pain out of paying for dinner: Pay anyone instantly using money you have in Venmo or link a bank account or debit card in seconds. A free service (although there is a 3% fee on certain credit cards).

Carbon Footprint Calculator powered by Make an Impact

Use this tool to calculate your personal carbon footprint and then compare your results to the local average. You can also pledge to reduce emissions and save money. Some aspects of the calculator are customizable so it can be embedded on websites. 


Reduce CO2 emissions by sharing your journey. Every year thousands of people drive to events all over the world. Greendrive provides a platform to help put people in touch.  Available for Android, iOS. Free.


Learn a European language for free. An addictive learning app available for iOS, Android. Free.
