An interactive app (only for Apple iOs) and web-based application that helps tutor your child from Singapore. Tutate’s main goal is to create a wholesome holistic experience for tutor, child and parent by tapping on the use of technology. Assignment books are bought, completed by the tutee and marked by an assigned tutor all through this app. MCQ and short answer questions are instantaneously marked while long answer questions are marked within a 24 hour window. In addition to that, parents are able to see the progress the child has made in a graph and the child will get reminders from the tutor regarding uncompleted assignments. Sadly, Tutate currently only has content that is focused on Singapore's education curriculum. However, do keep a look out for them as they are set to expand their operations and go global within the year.

Nice is a 3-in-1 Chinese-based app combines Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest! Although this is a Chinese-based start-up, it has really taken off as they now have users from around the world and not just from China. You might think that this looks exactly like Instagram, but here is where you are wrong – this is Instagram on massive steroids. With Nice, instead of only being able to tag people in the picture, you also tag a picture based on location, item, brand or even activity. With the tags, you are now able to search and connect with likeminded users with the Discover page. In addition, you are also able to chat with new friends or keep in contact with them through Nice making this a very interactive app. Nice is available on Android and Apple – So go on be nice, give Nice a try!
