7 APPS THE ‘NIGERIAN NEWBIE’ SO DESPERATELY NEEDS

Just recently moved back to Nigeria? Still adjusting to the new clime? Need a guide on what you need? This is just what you need!

THE TAXI APP

Getting around tends to be relatively difficult in new terrains: What are the traffic laws? How do you get directions? How much do you pay? That’s exactly why you need a great taxi app! Kick back, relax and enjoy the city the right way with a comfortable, affordable ride around town.

GOOGLE MAPS

Speaking of directions, nothing will be of more use to you than an automated voice bossing you around town. (No, really. It’s more precious than your boyfriend.) Get around easily with the Google Maps app, which acts as a GPS, traffic monitor and location tracker.

THE FOOD DELIVERY APP

You can enjoy the same, great takeout experience you’ve had abroad in the Motherland – at the tap of just a few buttons. Everything from Chinese, to one-of-a-kind amala, get good food delivered (very often for free!) straight to your door.

NETFLIX

…and chill. (No, the real kind.) Why can’t you keep up with Hollywood’s latest and greatest, the best of classics, as well as your favourite TV shows, all in one place? Start your one month free trial with Netflix here – and watch your favourite films and series on the go!

THE TRAVEL APP

From Fascinating Nigeria, to TripIt, download a handy travel app that will help navigate through the country. Arm your smartphone – and yourself – with maps, attractions and currency converters that will help make your trip or stay bliss.

THE LOCAL LANGUAGE APP

Learning Yoruba, Igbo, Efik and hundreds of other Nigerian languages has never been so easy! Who needs a teacher? Apps like iSabi Yoruba Plus and Learn Hausa are available to turn you into a PRO!

THE DATING APP

“There are two reasons a girl moves to the city. To find labels, and love,” Sex and the City character, Carrie Bradshaw says. No truer words! Looking for love but have little or no desire to crawl through bars to find it? There’s an app for that! NAIJing, Friendite and Badoo are just a few on offer!
