Spice Girls

In 1996, Spice Girls, consisting of Victoria Adams, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell, became world-famous with the one-shot video of wannabe, a song initially considered too weird and anarchic.

The girls gave their auditions in 1994, seeing an ad for a girl band in a newspaper. Around 400 prospects were there in the first audition, but the second round only had 10 girls after a month.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
