Not having the change for a cup of coffee on campus isn’t a problem anymore with Yoyo. Link your card up to this app for quick, easy payments with no minimum spend at all cafes on Winchester campus.

Keep your eyes peeled for Yoyo’s business card around Winchester which has a code for a free hot drink when you sign up.

2. Life Cycle

Life Cycle tracks your day for you, running in the background of your phone day and night.

As well as it being super interesting, it’s a great way to find out how you spend your time and to work out what you do too much or not enough of (like sleeping!).

3. Forest

Struggling to stay focused while studying? Forest encourages you leave your phone alone by planting trees. The longer you go without leaving the app, the larger your garden grows. It’s addictive!

The best thing about this app? If you stay focused long enough real trees are planted around the world.

4. Student Beans
