Most people are glued to the apps on their phones or tablets these days, and that doesn’t change when on holiday or searching for things to do or information. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite apps which we think bring that little extra to life in Cornwall. From things to do, to tide times and water quality, these apps are vital for a modern life by the sea. These apps are all free to download, but some do have in-app purchases.
