From brain-training to budgeting: five apps everyone forgets

Font Size:

Keep your brain in tip-top shape, your budget under control, your bowels at ease and much more with these 5 great apps everyone forgets.

Toilet Finder

Not many people could honestly say that this app wouldn’t have saved them from an embarrassing situation. Plan your long drives or road trips with a little more security with Toilet Finder. This app is free and will let you know where the nearest public toilet to you is. You can also join the community to keep the app-up to-date and accurate, so nobody gets caught out when nature calls.

Available for free on iPhone, iPad and Android.


This great brain training app is free and will challenge your memory and problem-solving skills with a range of innovative games. Don’t let your grey matter gather dust.

Available for free on iPhone, iPad and Android.

While we’re on the topic, learning a language is one of the best ways to keep your brain active and it’s never too late to start learning. Whether you just want to grasp the basics before a trip or you’ve got your eyes set on fluency, Duolingo will help you on your path. It has 19 languages available for native English speakers, and will keep track of your strengths and weaknesses to help you learn.

Available for free on iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows.


The real trouble with a budgeting app is that you have to remember to use it. Pocketbook makes it easier to remember as it syncs with your bank account to pull in all of your spending information. This means that when you overspend, Pocketbook can send you real-time notifications and warnings to get your budget back in shape.

Available for iPhone, iPad, Android, or visit the website.

Google Maps

Maybe not as often forgotten as some of the above options, but how often do you use some of the lesser known features, such as public transport directions, full GPS directions (including voice-over), adding stops to your trips, or strolling the streets of countries around the world?

Available for iPhone, iPad, Android or visit the website.
