5 MUST HAVE apps for students going abroad


If you’re a student and are looking to go abroad, then what apps will you need? Yes, I really did just say ‘what apps will you need’!!!!

The time has come where we no longer only consider what we need to pack to take with us, but (apparently) we are considering what apps we’ll need installed before we journey away from what we deem ‘home’, in order to stay in contact with our friends and family.

Top 10 apps to install before going abroad:

  1. This one may seem obvious (to some), but a great app to have whilst abroad would be WhatsApp. WhatsApp is a FREE to download app which allows you to contact your family via. using 3G or WiFi services. You can send multimedia messages, enjoy group chats, no pins or usernames (uses your mobile phone number), no international charges. Available on BOTH iPhone and Android
  2. Viber – Make calls to anyone anywhere in the world for free with Viber, as long as the person you want to contact has the application on their phone. It is similar to Skype, but without the video calling, although you can send video messages and text as well. Available on BOTH iPhone and Android
  3. Skyscanner – Plan your next trip home (or adventure to another country) and find the cheapest flights using the handy search results display, which allows you to view prices by day, week, month or even a whole year. It also directs you to the cheapest company for each flight when booking. Available on BOTH iPhone and Android.
  4. XE currency converter – If you’re a student and you’re going abroad then you’re definitely going to have to be watching your pennies. This app lets you know just how far your money is going with this currency converter, which stores the latest rates to give an accurate figure when you’re not connected to WIFI or 3G. It also comes in a selection of different languages, which is a bonus. Available on iPhone and Android
  5. BBC Weather – you never know what the weather is going to be like, so be equipped with a weather app installed onto your device. This app allows you to have several locations available at the swipe of a finger, so you’re able to check the weather in multiple countries. This app is free and is available on iPhone and Android.

The Social Network For Introverts


What is Anomo?

Is Anomo “revolutionizing first impressions”?

How ‘Anomo’ describe themselves:

“Anomo switches up the social networking world. You use an anonymous avatar and actually get to know the people around you while interacting in games and group or one-on-one chats. Because everyone starts as an avatar, first impressions reach beyond appearance and relationships grow in a more interactive way. You control how much you want to reveal about yourself in each relationship as you go.”
