We are not going to provide an introduction here. What we will do is share with you “a list compilation of Apps that are very resourceful”, if you’re a student abroad or just travelling. So here you go:
Available both on iOS and Android, Skyscanner is a global travel search site that compares price for millions of flights, car hires and hotels. Saves you time, money and importantly energy. Once you have found your flight, you then book directly with the airline or online travel agent.
2. Moving Guru
Available both on iOS and Android, Moving Guru makes your relocation to overseas just seamless. You’ll be guided through every phase of your move, whether it’s domestic or international, with an estimate and checklist. Starting 10 weeks prior to the move date, you’ll add tasks to your calendar, with tips for selecting a mover as well as packing tips.
Available on both iOS and Android, Stay is a free travel app and has maps of more than 150 cities around the world. Download the city you’re in, and you can view it without being connected to the internet. Stay can save you money on roaming fees. It also features thousands of local expert guides, including baristas, chefs, and DJs, making it that much easier to explore and find great venues.
Available on iOS, Android, Windows, and Blackberry, GrabTaxi is an on-demand ride service in Southeast Asia, which covers Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia. It is cost-effective in that you can hire private cars that may not charge as much as standard fares. Even if you are booking a cab from a local taxi fleet, rates vary between companies; if you know which one is cheapest, you can save money by choosing that one.
Available on both iOS and Android, Hailo is in 20 cities around the world, from Barcelona to Tokyo, and lets you hail taxis from within the app. The app locates your location, summons the taxi closest to you and lets you know how long it will take for your ride to pick you up. Some rides have fixed fares, and they are calculated so they’re always lower than the meter rate you would have paid with another company.
Available on iOS, Android and Windows, Mint is a useful app for handling your finances – bills, budget, and wild spending money – and will keep you from making late payments, getting charged NSF fees and being caught with nothing in your pocket. Mint also helps you create a budget that is specific to you, based on your spending, which means it’s more likely you’ll stick to it.
7. Onavo Extend
Available on both iOS and Andriod, Onavo Extend is a useful app to save on your phone bills. By using this data-compressing app, you’ll be able to use your phone more without increasing your bill. Onavo runs in the background, constantly finding ways to conserve your mobile data. Simply by lowering the quality of an image, for example, you’ll save data. It also gives you details about how much data you use in each app.
Available on both iOS and Android, GrabPoints is an international program in which users earn points for downloading (and using) apps, watching videos and completing surveys. When you have enough points, you can cash out for Amazon, BestBuy, Starbucks, Wal-Mart, Target, or PayPal credit.
Available on iOS, Android, and Windows, you can earn points redeemable as gift cards, trips, or electronics by watching TV or listening to music on Viggle. By opening the Viggle app as you watch or listen, it identifies the show or song and adds points to your account.
Available on both iOS and Android. If you’re good with a camera, you could make money selling your photos on Foap. Each photo on Foap costs $10, and for each sale you make you cash out $10. There are various contests for specific content, some run by big brand names, where prizes run from hundreds into thousands of dollars.
