Every Monday morning at around 10:40 Matt presents the App of the Week slot on the Mark Murphy Mid-Morning Show on BBC Radio Suffolk. Matt is also the shows ‘Resident Technical Correspondent’.
The mobile apps are picked from the hundreds of thousands available to download and can work on Android, iPhone/iPad, Windows Phone and Blackberry handsets.
Normally they are chosen because they offer something a little bit different from the norm.
The next episode of App of the Week will be on Monday 10th March 2014 at approx. 10:40am on BBC Radio Suffolk.
