Bill Zemen, Technology

Kind of boring, but Wikipedia for settling arguments on the spot, and IMDB to stop myself from renting terrible movies.


Josephine Sullivan, Research Intern

I live on WorkFlowy. It’s an amazing to-do list app that really keeps me organized. It’s so beautiful and functional in both the app and the desktop/browser version; I would be so lost without it.


Yi Yuan, Research Intern

My favorite app is TuneIn radio, it allows you to listen to multiple radio channels and podcasts on your phone and I turn on the radio every time I’m cooking. And ConverterPad which allows you to convert measurements and currencies. And SoundHound, which helps identify the song immediately.


Lucy Yan, Research Intern

One of my favorite apps is Pandora (obviously). I always abuse my data plan and listen to its radios in the gym or during commute, especially now that I can stream music from many subway stations and on the train.


Leeza Kuznetsova, Research Analyst

The eBay mobile app mimics the desktop experience seamlessly, from searching for items and adding them watch lists. The notifications are my favorite feature; I never have to worry about forgetting an item and being outbid because the app gives me heads up.


Elizabeth Fitzpatrick, Advisory Lead

Dropbox and Evernote for productivity/work; LinkedIn and Cardmunch for work/contacts; Viber (better) and WhatsApp (older so more people have) for international talk/text free of charge; UP by Jawbone  and Equinox for fitness… Oh and WWD and WSJ for all my news needs!


Janet Acosta, Research Analyst

Flightaware is definitely one of my favorites. I track my family’s flights to know exactly when they’re landing and even use it while I’m flying and it’s been too long since the captain has given an update. The best thing is that it doesn’t use a separate GPS so it’s perfectly safe to use in the air.
