7 Useful Apps

I hunted through my phone (I use Android.) and considered the apps I used most, or find the most useful. Here’s some I recommend:

Weather Network. I have tried so many apps to get the right weather display that I can follow. I’ve even tried paying for some (don’t do that… not worth it!) I always come back to the good old Weather Network.

  1. Beep and Go and Pay By Phone are definitely apps I need to try. Do you use What’s App? I have been thinking about downloading it.

  2. Thanks. Useful info. I like the idea of Beep and Go. Can you use that at McNally’s?

    • I actually haven’t tried it there but it has a bar code so it should work. And the app gives the option to photograph both front and back of the card so they can see the expiry date. I’d try it but carry the original card on you till you test it out. I does work at Chapters, I use my plum card there through Beep n Go.
