So what apps are there to help you maximise your March?

March plays host to one of the biggest horse racing events on the planet. The Cheltenham Festival, which can genuinely stand up against the Grand National in weight of importance in the jump racing world, is sure to have another stellar year. In the past, the four-day event has attracted up to 230,000 spectators, which is a quite phenomenal feat. Despite most of us not being there, we can still take part. Downloading a betting application and tuning in online or on the television can be just as fun. The festival alone is worth watching, but indulging in a few Cheltenham Festival bets does give you that added bit of excitement.

Just when you think there is no more room for a mapping app, out comes City maps. This ingenious piece of software allows you to build personal maps based on selected favourite places. With originality like this it’s little wonder why it has garnered such great reviews. If you were going to propose to your girlfriend, you could make your own romantic tour of your home town. You can start with the place you first met and so on. Is Citymaps a replacement for Google Maps? That is a no. However, it does serve a very good purpose. Can you share maps and routes with your friends on Google Maps? Citymaps is fun and it certainly gets you out of the house.

Alt-C is one of the more uninspiring applications to download. It has but one purpose and will only have one purpose for the rest of its days. This app may seem mundane and tedious, which, in fairness, it is. But, and it is a very big but, it is of great use to all Android users. The app simply lets you copy texts and links between your phone and Windows PC. Just install the Android and desktop app and get pressing Alt-C.

As a cross between Snapchat and Instagram, One Minute may just be able to carve out a niche for itself. The founders of One Minute will certainly be anxious to get into a strong position within the market, which is increasing in value by the hour. Evan Spiegel, the founder of Snapchat and presumably their main competitor, is, at the age of 24, the world’s youngest billionaire. Temporary image sharing is massive right now and One Minute can surely expect to be on to a winner. The idea itself is original enough to prove popular with the large selfie-loving demographic, while it also has the credibility to attract the more artisan folk of Instagram. The app allows you to take only one picture, within a 60-second timescale, per day. These daily prompts can occur at any time of the day. Missing them means you’ll have to go through the brutality of not being able to upload a picture for 24 hours. Taking a look at the website will help give you a clearer image. One Minute has got the spontaneity of Snapchat, just minus the numbers. It is a clever little thing and it may just establish itself.
