5. 08 Wizard

Want to avoid the additional charges for calling 0800, 0845 and 0870 numbers? Well, thanks to the handy 08 Wizard, you can make sky-high phone bills a thing of the past. The app works by switching 08 calls with an 01 or 02 landline number, so the call becomes inclusive as part of your contract’s free minutes – or at least at a lower rate if you’re on pay-as-you-go. (79p from the AppStore).

 

4. Tip N Split

Yeah, that’s right – you can say goodbye to watching your friends frantically dividing the bill between 15 and getting it hopelessly wrong before you snap and just pay the thing yourself! Tip N Split calculates how to split your bill evenly (including service charge), which means no more miscalculation, no more fuss, and a little more cash in your pocket come home time. (Download for free).

 

3. Foodmatic

Too much month at the end of the money? We’ve all been there! Luckily, when you’ve got a week until payday and the cupboards are looking a bit bare, Foodmatic can help you get creative with what’s left. All you have to do is enter the ingredients and the app gives you the best meal you can make with what you’ve got. That means no waste, no extra trips to the supermarket and a (hopefully) fabulous culinary creation – brilliant! (79p from the AppStore)
