TikTok

This already popular pre-lockdown app has become even more popular now! Users on the app make videos of up to 15 seconds long, adding visual effects and music. You will find yourself on the app for hours, scrolling through the ‘For You’ page filled with animals, families and some rather useful tips and tricks you didn’t know about.

If you’re looking to create a viral video or just entertain yourself during lockdown, TikTok truly is the way forward. We promise you won’t regret downloading it...

HouseParty

The new free app ‘HouseParty’ has taken over during lockdown. It is an easy way to stay connected with your friends and family via video. There is a twist to this particular video app which is that other friends can jump into your video call ‘room.’ So be sure to lock the room if you don’t want anyone else coming in!

 You can also play a variety of games whilst on video such as Heads Up and Trivia. Whenever your friends log into the app, you will be notified that they have ‘entered the house’ so you can instantly connect with them online - This is a great way to stay connected during lockdown and have some fun!

Disney+

You might find yourself finally getting around to watching that Netflix series that you’ve been really wanting to see. Or you may be in fact looking for a new film, series or documentary to invest your time in… In March Disney finally launched their Disney+ service in the UK, giving us access to thousands of Disney classics. So if you are a Disney lover, this might be the perfect time to work through your library of Disney entertainment.

To indulge in all things Disney, you will have to pay a monthly fee of £5.99 or a yearly subscription - They are also currently offering a 7-free day trial that might interest you. Check out our Disney+ blog for more information.

Strava

There has never been a better time to start or maintain your fitness. Following the government guidelines, we are allowed to exercise once a day for an hour. Strava is a great app that allows you to track your running and riding with GPS. Not only this but you can join challenges and share your photos and success amongst your friends.

Having healthy competition may be the push you need to break them boundaries and keep on top your fitness during lockdown. And, since it is completely free you have nothing to lose!
