Just like stamping library books or renting films, standing in agonisingly long queues on a Saturday night for a lottery ticket is something that is moving towards extinction. Could the thrill of actually claiming a jackpot outweigh the unpleasantness of this thankless task? Well, yes it probably could actually but even so, there is absolutely no need to wait in line any longer. By using the Lottoland lottery app for iPhone, fortune seekers can place their numbers quickly and efficiently, view account and game history, and receive notifications should their lucky numbers come in. Long gone are the days of frantically ransacking your house in search of that elusive winning ticket!


This meal planner app is the ideal companion for someone who either doesn’t have time to plan what they are going to cook each day, or simply lacks inspiration. It integrates meal planning, grocery lists, recipes and meal suggestions, and has over 350,000 recipes to suit every diet and occasion. Say you are scrolling through and you like the look of a certain dish, you can tap on it and it will instantly add all the ingredients to your shopping list. It even sorts these items alphabetically or by section of the supermarket. No more last minute dashes to the shop when you realise you forgot that one key ingredient!

Write down your tasks and prioritise them in a neat list, and then when you complete them, swipe across and hear the satisfying ding as you tick another job off your schedule.
