5 best Android apps for summer festivals

Five handy Android apps to make the most of summer festivals.

By Amy-Jo Crowley

1. Packing List


Need help organising what to bring? Packing List is a handy app that ensures you don’t leave anything behind. The app allows you to create lists from scratch and group items by category, location and luggage. You can also email and share your lists with other people or print them out.

2. Festival Ready


Now that you’ve packed your tent, flip-flops and waterproofs beware that festivals will also test your endurance. So what better way to prepare than with a survival guide based on techniques used in the military? Festival Ready is an all-in-one app that comes packed with useful tools including a torch, LED messenger, 3D navigation and weather details.
Sponsored by Victorinox, the Swiss army knife maker, it also allows any friends running the same app to find you.

3. Shazam

Those who frequently embarrass themselves by not knowing the names of popular songs can wipe away their shame with Shazam. The music recognition app allows users to record part of a song they haven’t heard of, which then finds it out. The app also offers videos on YouTube, lyrics and biographies and maps what the world is listening to.

4. Drink Tracker App


By downloading the NHS Change4Life app, festival-goers can track their drinks each day and find out if they’re drinking too much. Users can also add daily notes, learn more about related risks and receive daily tips and feedback.

5. DU Battery Saver


With battery life being another issue for festival goers, this app can help ensure you don’t run out. The app includes pre-set options that you can set up to make sure you’re using as little battery as possible.
