Here is a summary of some of the best parts of 2010.
Favourite new gadget
I still think homeplugs are the best gadget for home. They are much more reliable than wireless, and feel quicker. They can’t win the 2010 award because I’ve had them for a few years now.
Best new purchase of the year was a new A3 network printer for home. The quality is so good that I’ve stopped using Photobox, and just print from home using original Brother inks on Photo Paper Direct (pearl) paper.
Future Files by Richard Watson. I’ve bought probably half a dozen times for different people, and bored many dinner crowds by talking about the future of education, consumer brands and commerce.
Favourite iPhone app
Perhaps Facebook in terms of usage, but definitely Evernote for random note taking whether its text, photo or anything else. And it syncs with the computer application and website.
Close second place is the BTFON app, which allows BT Broadband customers to connect to Openzone Wifi without needing to manually sign in all the time. Special mention to the eBay selling app which creates a listing in under 30 seconds – by far the best user experience on a mobile app.
Coming 16th in the New Media Age Top 100 Interactive Agencies award was a great milestone for Endava and makes me extremely proud of the team.
