Top 5 student apps you need in your life

by Nina Christopoulou

For better or for worse, we live in an era where our phones are an extension of our existence, and we rely on our apps for all sorts of everyday tasks. So it makes sense that there would be apps specifically tailored to combat some of the greatest problems that students face. Let’s take a closer look at them:

1. Student Beans

Discount hunting is an essential aspect of the “being on a budget” mentality that most of us around the globe adopt. Student Beans makes bargain hunting easier than anyone could have imagined – railcards, clothing, food, you name it – Student Beans has a discount on it!

2. Student Chef

The name is pretty clear in itself, but in case you are still wondering: Student Chef is an app that has quick, cheap and delicious recipes. Their layout is convenient, as it lets you know on the top of each recipe the time you will need, the level of difficulty and the cost in pounds as well. The perfect end to those long stays at the supermarket, trying to pick out your supplies for the week!

5. The Wetherspoons App

Remember that feeling when your friend leaves the table to order your drinks, and you search for your phone so you can pretend you are busy until they come back? The Wetherspoons app put a stop to those uncomfortable settings by bringing your food and drinks to you. It can even remember your last order, so you don’t forget somebody’s drink when buying rounds!
