Best Student iPhone Apps

As you probably already know ‘apps’ are becoming increasingly popular to phone users whether you are using an iPhone, android or even a blackberry. We at SES have been reviewing and have come up with a list of iPhone apps that would be useful to Students. If you think we have missed out any, please comment below

Urban Spoon
You have done your assignments and you can’t decide where to eat? Shake your iPhone and the Urban Spoon slot machine will pick a good restaurant for you to try. You can set the price range, the type of food and the area, read reviews, share with your friends and more.

Trainline
Very useful app for regular rail users, giving you access to all the cheap tickets to visit your friends and family while you’re at university. It’ll set you back £4.99 but saves you so much more in the long run. It’ll also give you tube updates and local taxi information.

Shazam
Ever been on a night out and the DJ is playing amazing tunes you’ve never heard? Shazam saves you dancing like a member of an African tribe and yelling manically to your friends, “What is this tuuuune?” It’s an app that feels like magic when you first use it – simply hold your device to the source of the music, and wait while the app tells you what track you’re listening to.

4oD Catch Up
Had to put this app in for fun!
Everyone wants to relax after a hard days work of having lectures or doing assignments right? Well you can watch 40d catchup right on your iphone app.
Technically, more like ’4oD Catch Up With A Specific Chunk of Channel 4′s TV Shows Only’ (no archives yet in the iPhone version); also 4oD Catch Up lacks subtitles and AirPlay support. But it’s free, unlimited, and gives you a month to catch up with Channel 4′s programming on your device.
