Some of us like to ask friends and family before we buy something, others spend hours browsing websites and catalogues before they hit the shops. Now furniture retailer Ikea has an alternative with an app that uses the Chinese signs of the Zodiac to make recommendations.
Once you enter your birthdate or click on your sign, the app will suggest 'compatible' furniture. Say 'neigh' to clutter in the year of the horse, it says. Sounds like a good resolution.
