For life in ShenZhen, China:

Nogogo - Delivers Western Groceries to your door. Angel and I primarily eat local groceries, but many expats find this service very useful when they have a craving.
YouKu  - Netflix/Youtube of China. If you search enough, you can find free full-length English movies and tv shows

For Learning Mandarin:

Pleco - Dictionary App
Living Language - I highly recommend the books for beginning language learners studying on their own, I am extremely impressed with their layout and efficiency. I linked to their online Language Lab where you can play free language learning/vocabulary reinforcing games.

Memrise - Has free educational courses in many different subjects, among them, Mandarin.
