Lots more video calls in Zoom compared to audio only. So many in fact I'm working on improving lighting and thinking about installing a green screen for virtual background use.

Also using Loom a bit…

Love Loom, I've found I've had to nudge myself to use it - I have a little note by my screen prompting me - "Maybe Loom rather than email?". I find it great for sharing notes and ideas - tend to limit…

Well, I was kind of forced into it kicking and screaming but it's mainly the integration with Office that wins, and having one place for all team conversations. I actually preferred ClickUp but lost…

Loved that app, so far ahead of its time. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and now blue light suppression and dark mode is everywhere. If they weren't the first they were certainly the…

Receipt Bank (https://www.receipt-bank.com/uk/)
There's nothing wrong with it per se, but I'm used to the awesomeness of Expensify. The thing with Receipt Bank is that it's approver-focused, not…

Spark, Loom, and Bit.ly are all pretty much essential to my working day and are the sort of apps I'd buy if they suddenly took away their free tiers. Honorable shout-out to Click-Up too - I loved that…

In meeting it's usually very good. One to one audio calling seems a bit patchier which doesn't really make sense. I know MS have made some service changes to help Teams cope with the surge in demand…

Teams is an enterprise juggernaut and will eat Slack's lunch in that market. Personally, even as someone who remembers and used IRC & Usenet, I've never "got" Slack. That's probably what 20 years of…
