OUT AND ABOUT SAVERS
ATM Hunters is perfect for Freshers, as it quickly and easily finds the nearest cashpoints to you. This means you will never have to use a paid cash machine again! However, remember, just because you know where the ATM is, doesn’t mean you need to use it!

With Spendometer you can set a daily, weekly, and monthly budget, and then fill in your spending as you go. The app will tell you how much you are overspending or saving, and so this is a great way to watch how you spend, and keep your motivation up to save!
Meter Readings can track up to 9 different readers within your house, showing usage and costs over different periods.

Onavo claims to be able to save you up to 80% on your data plan by compressing the data you use while using internet on your phone.
