My latest favorite app is Microsoft Bookings. I was recommended to try this app by a colleague, when I was looking for a solution to provide easy-to-book, free consultation to our customers. It took me only about an hour to test and learn the functionalities, and I could find all options that I needed to provide the service I planned. The app allows us, as the service provider to assign one or more experts to a certain topic, while we can allow or restrict customers to choose the consultant. The available time for consultation can be pre-defined (e.g. every weekday between 10-12) or can be aligned to the availability of the presenter based on his Outlook calendar. The user experience for the customers, who want to have a consultation, is straightforward and easy - they can book consultation slots with experts without any complicated alignment on availability, and the customizable confirmation and reminder messages makes the user experience very convenient and seamless.

During my job I use various applications and services which require multiple and equally strong passwords. I found KeePass being a reliable solution both for my work and my personal accounts. It is a free and simple password manager available for Windows, Linux and macOS operating systems keeping all my passwords in one place that is encrypted. The database containing the passwords, is locked with a master key. The feature I like the most is that a double click on the username or the password automatically copies it to the clipboard, so I can log in to any website quickly. The interface contains a panel where you can add all your usernames and passwords from which KeePass creates the database. It can be saved on the local computer or a cloud storage service. I recommend the latter, for example Microsoft OneDrive. Furthermore, KeePass desktop application supports password generation and management and auto-type form-filling as well.
