Homestyler is the perfect app for visualising what a room could look like in 3D with furniture and fittings you may have considered buying. Visually seeing how a new item would look in a room can save you both time and money, as opposed to going back and forth to buy and return items. You can even flick through professional portfolios for inspiration if your creative juices aren’t flowing!

6. Wake Up and Smell The Bacon

Yes, this is an app-based alarm clock that will entice you out of your extended slumber with the smell of freshly cooked bacon. But beware: the crushing disappointment of finding that you’ve been tricked – that there isn’t really any bacon – may be enough to send you crawling back into bed. Which is why some bright sparks went as far as to make a real bacon alarm clock.
