The halcyon days of catching up with your friends at a neighbourhood bubble tea store are fleeting. Usher in the age of Telegram and a food delivery app because you sure ain’t leaving your comfy bed. Why would you? With over 2 million apps available to download on Apple’s App Store alone, there’s definitely an app for everything. And you’re right! Here’s our picks of some must-have apps to make life that much easier for you.

Food

Not sure what to eat this weekend? Consult Burpple (iOS/Android) and kickstart your gastronomical adventure! With curated guides, location search and an in-built reservation function, you’ll never run out of places to eat again.

 

Don’t feel like leaving the house? Take your pick between Foodpanda (iOS/Android), Deliveroo (iOS/Android), Honestbee (iOS/Android) and GrabFood (iOS/Android).

Tip: Compare between apps for potential discounts and shorter delivery times.

 

Travel

Lost? Instead of using Google Maps, try Citymapper (iOS/Android). We especially love how they’ve provided a Heat Safe option to minimise sweating up a storm and even a just for lulz Catapult mode. You know, in case you ever want to be launched into the air.

 

Alright, so you’ve found your way, but now you’re stuck at a bus stop. Check the arrival time of your bus with SingaBus (iOS/Android). Data is retrieved real-time from the Land Transport Authority to provide you reliable updates. The app even has a handy Favourites function and an integrated MRT map.

 

Bus taking too long? Book a taxi with either Grab (iOS/Android) or ComfortDelGro (iOS/Android). Both apps show you fares upfront so you can choose the cheaper option.

 

Miscellaneous

MyENV (iOS/Android) is National Environmental Agency’s official app and we’ve found it way more reliable than our phone’s stock Weather app.  It’s chock-full of useful information like the current PSI levels, whether your area is a dengue cluster, and for some reason even your nearest hawker center!

Nestia (iOS/Android) touts itself as the number one all-in-one lifestyle app, and rightfully so. With the latest news, lottery results, job postings, marketplace, an integrated movie booking functionality, public transport updates and so much more, Nestia is truly the jack of all trades.

 

Lastly, complement your online shopping with ShopBack (iOS/Android), the smarter way to shop. It’s super easy to earn cashback. All you have to do is to click on a cashback offer via the Shopback app. Cashback will be credited within the next month or two and when you’ve collected a sizeable fortune, cash out your earnings and repeat the cycle!

It is no secret that Singaporeans love their fried chicken, especially the ones from the famous Filipino fast-food chain, Jollibee.

When people heard that an outlet would be opening at Waterway Point on 18 July (Friday), you can bet that many people were pretty excited about the news.

And to show their enthusiasm, some people started queueing outside the store from as early as 7.30am.

Jollibee snapped some pictures of the insane queues and shared them on Facebook to show everyone how well-loved their fried chicken is.

One reason for the long queues was that the first 100 people in the line were entitled to the very adorable Jollibee pillows. The lucky first 5 customers managed to walk away with the limited edition Jollibee Funko POP! Figurine.

Queued 2 hours for Shake Shack but it didn’t quite make the cut? Fret not as you can look forward to sinking your teeth into another popular American burger joints burgers pretty soon.

Five Guys is slated to open an outlet at Plaza Singapura by the end of 2019 and they will most likely be situated near the main atrium at the ground level of the mall.

For those of you who have been living under a rock and do not know what Five Guys are, they essentially are a burger joint that specialises in outrageously juicy and lip-smackingly good burgers that are made from 100% freshly ground beef.

The brand has 8 burgers on their menu which ranges from the classic Cheeseburger to the more sinful Bacon Cheeseburger.

One thing that makes Five Guys so popular is the fact that you are given the freedom to choose as many toppings as you please; from tangy relish to juicy grilled mushrooms, you’ll undoubtedly be spoilt for choice!

We are unsure if the Singapore menu will be the same as their American counterpart but we are sure that either way, it’ll taste amazing!
