In modern day life, the saying “time is money” rings more true than ever before. Whether it’s work or socialising, nowadays we all lead extremely busy lives so anything that’ll save us time is generally welcomed with open arms. Whether it’s grabbing a bite, travelling, or simply organising your life, thankfully there are apps that can do it all – here are four of the best.
When you don’t have a lot of spare time it means that every single minute of your day becomes important and one thing you certainly don’t have time for is waiting for public transport. Besides being unpredictable, it also means you need to factor in a lot of extra time, not only because public transport usually takes longer than driving, but also because you need to allow the time it takes you to get from your home or office to the stop or station.
Uber is a company that’s completely revolutionised public transport by allowing users to book a taxi through an app, giving to-the-minute updates on your driver’s position and arrival time. Not only does this mean you can stay in the warm for a little bit longer, it also means you can work right up to the moment your car arrives.
It’s still early into the year, which means most of us are still trying to eat healthier and get to the gym. But as a busy person you really only have time for one of the other – make yourself a healthy meal when you get home or use the same time to exercise at the gym. So which do you choose? Well, with hungryhouse you can actually do both. This takeaway app has lots of healthy options from all your favourite restaurants meaning that you don’t need to go to the shops or waste time cooking. Just order a wholesome takeaway instead!
