Trainline
Very useful app for regular rail users, giving you access to all the cheap tickets to visit your friends and family while you’re at university. It’ll set you back £4.99 but saves you so much more in the long run. It’ll also give you tube updates and local taxi information.

Facebook
You can’t have a top 10 list and not include this behemoth, even if it’s purely through social pressure. It allows you to connect with all your friends and family whilst on the move, at the touch of a screen.  Do everything you can online, from updating your status and checking your messages to browsing (and maybe even un-tagging) some of those embarrassing photos from the night before.
