If it’s also free, gorgeous and full of great lessons, there’s nothing to lose. Install the following great eBook apps for an extremely memorable experience.

That’s where Cacoo comes in.
If you’re chilling online and looking for something creative to enjoy, you should check out this awesome little animation by Cirque de Soleil.

Have you ever found yourself in an emergency situation, suddenly wishing you could refer to a First-Aid guide to check if you were about to do the right thing? Many people in an emergency would panic in the face of a serious injury and second-guess any memories of first-aid training they may have from long ago. Just think about how much safer the patient would be, and how much more confident you would be helping them, if you had First-Aid instructions with you on your phone. This is a no-brainer – it’s useful.
