Technology blogger Tom Cheesewright is here with Apps,and how an online grocer has released figures showing that it really does pay for shops to have their own app. As always, he's got his apps of the week

As usual, we have web and social media news with Helen Zaltzman and Olly Mann and they can tell us how the failed social network Bebo (remember that?) could be resurrected, after the man who invented it brought it back from AOL for a song.


And we have Travel with Adrian Phillips of the Bradt guides, with where to go for a Tennis holiday, and the jackets you can use as wearable luggage, after Easyjet reduces the size of the bags you can carry on board.
