Best weekend apps for Apple iPhone

Those two days of freedom where we can let the metaphorical (or literal) hair down: From the Tube Map app to National Rail and Dropbox, T3 reveals the best weekend apps for Apple iPhone

While T3 Towers may be an idyllic workers paradise where beaming staffers working for the simple joy of working but we value our weekends as much as the next person. That's why we've put together this list of the essential apps for getting the most out of your weekend - whether that's watching films, going out or taking in a play, no less.

 

From the Friday commute home to a Saturday night on the town to Sunday lunch, we've grabbed all the top apps to unlock your weekend. And we've even ordered them chronologically.

 

Friday Evening: Dropbox
Never has putting off Friday afternoon work for the weekend been so easy. Simply sync a Dropbox folder on your work computer with your phone or laptop (it's easy, we promise) and, come five o'clock, drop your work into it and it's instantly in the cloud and accessible from any other device you own with Dropbox.
Platform: iPhone, Android

Friday Evening: HeyWAY
Using the iPhone's GPS and push notifications, HeyWAY (short for 'Hey, where are you?') can ping your friends and family for their locations and send you a GPS update. They have to be HeyWAY users, too, but it's a pleasantly Tomorrow's World way of tracking people's movements around the world.
Platform: iPhone, Android

Friday Evening: Layar
Using your phone camera, Layar slips information over any place you point your camera at to reveal everything from tourist information to coffee shops. There's even a dating layer to find nearby single Layar-users, if that's your bag.

Friday Evening: Ocado
Weekends are too short to waste standing in line for groceries. Get on to Ocado and browse an online Waitrose catalogue of over 15,000 items, from food to toiletries, before tasking some other poor soul with bringing them to your home.

Friday Evening: Slingplayer
Once you've got your Slingbox all hooked up to your TV, grab a copy of this app to beam your TV channels straight to your mobile for the commute home. Cheap it ain't at a shade under £20, but it's a snip to pay for portable telly.
