Nowadays, everybody has a smartphone. They help us stay connected, keep us entertained and give us endless information, all at our fingertips. While all of these things are very beneficial, there is something else your phone can do which you will love. Going on a night out is a great way to socialise and have fun with friends and family. But sometimes they can be difficult to organise by yourself. So why not put your smartphone to even better use and download these apps, to make your night out one to remember.


DrinkedIn       No night out would be complete without an alcoholic beverage or two. If you are going for a quick drink before a theatre show or plan on spending all night at the bar, DrinkedIn is the app for you.  This app showcases reviews and drinks menus for over 150,000 bars throughout the world. So if you’re travelling to a new place during your night out, this app can tell you which bar is the best for you and your party. So instead of just going to the first bar you find, which might not be to your liking, you can find somewhere that’s ideal for you and your friends. Meaning you don’t waste time walking aimlessly around looking for somewhere else.

Twitter       We all know how amazing Twitter is for talking to friends and reaching out to celebrities. But when it comes to planning a night out, it can also be used in more useful ways. Most restaurants, bars and shops will use this app to promote discounts and events they are currently having. Music venues, cinemas and theatres will use it to display cancellation notices and schedule times. Both of which can help you organise your night more efficiently. If you and your friends don’t feel like driving during your evening, you can also use Twitter to hire transportation. Search for Shofur on Twitter and look at the available services and vehicles you could use. Also, use the Twitter search bar to discover interesting local events and activities that might make your plan’s more unique.

Making it the perfect app to have no matter what kind of evening you have planned.
