The iPhone is an absolute phenomenon especially in terms of its app store that operates under the premise that if there’s just about anything you want to do or be able to do then there’s an app for that. Whether your thing is sport, movies, or news you can get an app to keep you updated, find venues, and more. For shopping junkies there are apps to find your nearest high street stores or to buy anything from a pair of socks or a pint of milk to a new house.
1 – MyHighStreet
The MyHighStreet app is a free UK based iPhone app that lets you choose a favourite retailer and be told where the nearest store is. It also has GPS functionality so it can detect exactly where you are and provide a list of the nearest shops.
2 – Amazon
There’s very few items that you can’t buy on Amazon and thanks to the Amazon marketplace that includes cheap second hand ones too. The Amazon iPhone app is simple to use and gives you easy access to thousands and thousands of items.
3 – Auto Trader
Just driven past a car you like the look of? Search for something similar on Auto Trader and get contact details for the seller. The Auto Trader app is another freebie that is easy to use and very handy if you’re looking for a new car.
4 – Ocado
You can also buy your groceries using your iPhone too. Ocado is basically the online shopping outlet for Waitrose and the mobile app is probably the best of the grocery shopping picks.
5 – FindAProperty
OK, so it might have limited use but if you’re looking to move home and are sick of visiting estate agents or prefer the flexibility of being able to search the web from your mobile phone then the FindAProperty app will find your location using GPS or let you search local properties for sale or to let.
