The season of summer is upon us and with it comes a plethora of festivals taking place all over the country.
And while Glastonbury, Latitude and other events already provide their own apps, they won’t stop you spending too much money, over-packing or getting sick.
Here are five apps that can help you minimise festival stress.
1. Packing Pro
Making sure you have a good time at the festival starts with a decent packing list, and Packing Pro can take care of that. The packing app uses basic information about you and the trip you’re planning including temperature, duration, and age of people you’re travelling with to build you the perfect list.
Retailing at $2.99, the app offers tips on how to pack better by categorising your items, and allows you to share lists with family and friends.
The sun has gone down and you’re tired from all the singing only to realise you’ve left your torch behind. So what better way to stop you from stumbling your way back to your tent and scrambling to find your gear than the iTorch Flashlight? The free app helps you find things and avoid accidents when it’s dark, using a light from your iPhone.
There’s nothing worse than being lost at night or finding yourself in the wrong sleeping bag, especially after a long day. This app helps you locate your tent after you add the name of it to the app. When you’re ready to head back, click ‘Find’ and the app will use GPS to guide you back every night. £0.69p
4. Battery Doctor
Battery life, or the lack of, during the festival is something of challenge.And while recharging facilities are often available, they often involve lengthy queues and charges.
Battery Doctor Pro tells you how much time you’ve got left on your current battery and which apps are using the most power. It also offers suggestions on which components you can turn off to give you more battery time and how many more hours of power you can get by doing so. It also shows you your charging history and habits.
5. Water Your Body
With all the alcohol, sunshine and dancing, it’s important to have enough water. Water Your Body builds a custom hydration plan for you and tracks your progress to make sure you’re getting enough liquids.
