Brendan Dunstan-Smith is a Senior Account Manager and Strategist at Neo@Ogilvy
What Hardware Do You Use?
 - Android and Windows.  - I work off of a Galaxy Smartphone and Windows based PC. Although my old school HTC Flyer with Android Ice Cream Sandwich is great for taking notes and jotting down ideas.  
What 3 apps do you use the most/dig the most (apart from social apps)?
-Asana is an awesome free project management application that lets me manage all of my projects and tasks from any smart device.  It also links up to Google Apps so it is great for any Google Power users.   
-Hootsuite is a great social media aggregator and source for all the news that I follow. At the moment I have more than one Twitter account and Hootsuite allows me to follow all my news and social sources in one simple dashboard.
- Soundcloud  or EXFM is my most used apps at the moment. I am a bit of a music junky and love to find new bands and these apps are perfect for anybody looking to create the perfect playlist or discover new music.  Although they might not have all the benefits of Spotify they are free from the App store and for South Africans they are perfect as you don’t have to be based in the States or Europe to access them.

Luke Siedle is a developer at Lab19digital and a musician part time.
 
What Hardware Do You Use?
 All families!  - My phone is a Galaxy S3. It’s fast and has an incredible camera.  - I have an iPad second generation which is mostly a toy or used for recording music or testing websites.  - I run uBuntu on a i3 Packard Bell laptop for development, and I have a Windows-based PC at my desk. What 3 apps do you use the most/dig the most (apart from social apps)?
- Pulse is a great news reader. They have very elegant apps for every platform. I use whichever version is on hand daily.  
- Trello is an elegant list management tool which I use partly for work and partly for personal organisation. It’s free and they have apps on all platforms. 
- Dropbox is essential to my life. I run any work projects directly off that folder there so my work is constantly synced across my devices. Funnily enough I’m still able to run on the free plan, although my box is almost full now. Dropbox’s client is renowned for being smooth and fast. I’ve had lots of issues using Google Drive’s client.
