There is pretty much an app for everything these days so why not use them to your advantage? Whether it’s for taking notes, keeping fit or stopping you texting THAT ex, there is an app for you to make university life easier.
A meditation and mindfulness app that is said to help reduce stress and anxiety. They say ‘ meditation has been shown to help people stress less, focus more and even sleep better.

Find My iPhone
A pretty self-explanatory app. It can locate your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or your MAC on a map. If you lose your phone on a night out you can remotely lock it with a passcode which will put a custom message on the lock screen.
If you just lose it in your student digs and can’t for the life of you find it, You can play an alarm for two minutes at full volume (even if your device is actually on silent)
This is a free app for housemates to keep track of money when splitting bills, rent, food and even nights out. Everybody will be billed for their share and it will be sent directly to the provider.
It’s a great way to give you peace of mind instead of trying to chase money.
An app we think everybody should have as standard anyway. You simply add friends and family from your contact list so they can see your location and status in real time. You can let them know if you feel nervous while out and about at any point and there is also an ‘alert your local’ police feature if you find yourself in a dangerous situation.
Another one we think should be standard on students phones. We’ve all been guilty of drunk dialing, well now you can be safe from that ‘morning after the night before’ dread.
The drunk mode app has 5 features…
Stop Drunk Dialing – The call-blocker hides select phone contacts when you want to get drunk so you can’t contact these selected numbers for up to 12 hours.
Find My Drunk – The friend finder allows you to track your drunk friends via GPS so you don’t lose them when you are out partying.
Breadcrumbs – Shows you where you went last night after that crazy party or bar crawl.
Find A Safe Ride Home – Quickly find a ride home or walking directions to your friends locations.
Hotspots – Find the best parties around you in select cities & colleges with our heat maps that display in real time how busy an area is and the girl to guy ratio.
Live/real time transporting updates every minute to keep you up to date when travelling from A to B.
