Organise your Instagram feed efficiently with UNUM, an easy-to-use Instagram preview app that’ll help you plan your posts for a visually consistent feed. Simply drag and drop to rearrange your images and schedule reminders so you’ll never forget an Instagram post. Besides having a wide array of in-app photo editing options, you can also delete your posted photos temporarily with UNUM’s new Phantom feature to see how your feed would look like without them. From the big picture to the smallest details, upping your Instagram game has never been easier.
Fun fact: there are three stages of sleep – light, deep and REM. One sleep cycle lasts an average of 90 minutes and these cycles repeat throughout the night. The Sleep Cycle alarm clock tracks your sleep patterns through motion detection and wakes you up during your lightest sleep stage, which has been proven to help people feel more refreshed upon awakening, even with minimal sleep. It also automatically charts graphs through the sleep patterns recorded, which offer analytical insights on your sleeping habits. Never wake up groggy and grumpy again!

Iron the creases from your life with Stylebook, which (literally) puts your closet in the palm of your hand by allowing users to upload snaps of individual clothing items, which can be subsequently grouped into super specific sub-categories. This comes in especially handy for outfit planning – simply assign the style you have created to a particular date and you’re set! Although importing photos of your entire wardrobe may seem like a chore at first, organising your threads with Stylebook will save you loads of time in the long run.
