One of the most popular applications is Red Laser, an application which has the ability to scan any product you see in shops or retail stores instantly. Providing your connected to the internet, it will then bring up a product results page, listing price results for the exact product you’ve just scanned, and in most cases – it will make you realise that you can find the same item elsewhere for a much cheaper price.

Moving away from shopping, there’s a great app called ‘Meter Readings’, an inexpensive app which will calculate your household water and energy usage, allowing you to monitor figures closely which will make you realise if you’re spending a bit too much money on water or energy on a particular month.
