Planning and then going out on an amazing night with the Girls has got to be the highlight of any week, month or year. We look forward to them so much that we constantly discuss them, email about them, and even go so far as to plan the next one before the night over!
It doesn’t matter if you are attending a film premier or simply heading down to the local bar to let of some steam; organising a successful girls night out can be fraught with all kinds of difficulties. This shouldn’t be the case; but all too commonly miscommunications and other logistical issues put a stop to the night before it has begun.
That was until some clever developers started releasing applications which if used correctly can improve a girls night out. We have been searching the Android Market far and wide and have listed below the must-have Android apps which will make your night out one to remember.
1. Social apps
What good is your girls night out if none of your friends know about it or are able to communicate with you. It might be obvious; but ensuring that you have Facebook & Twitter (or whatever social network you and your friends belong to) installed will allow you to create and send group messages and updates. Meaning everyone arrives to your house on time and isn’t left out. The apps are just as good after the event as they are before, allowing you to share and comment on photo’s on the fly from wherever you are.
2. Make a killer cocktail – 8,500+ Drink Recipes
Having some pre-drinks at your house, but open the drinks cabinet only to find half a bottle of port and some limoncello. Fear not. The 8,500+ Drink Recipes app will make your girl friends think you have been studying with Tom Cruise. Not only will it let you browse by famous cocktails, but it will allow you to add ingredients from which it will filter through the potential drinks you can make.
3. Wear something trendy – Trendstop Fashion TrendTracker
Never again will you be lost for inspiration when trying to pick out your outfit for the night. TrendTracker by Trendstop.com gives you instant access to the latest fashion trends, street looks, and access to over 500 catwalk show photo galleries. You can also check out daily fashion news and even share trend info with through your social network. It does all this, but we know what you’re thinking “is it too early to resurrect that 1995 brown patent jacket?” – Yes!
4. Find somewhere to go – Google Maps
Whether you know exactly where you are going or you are looking for somewhere lively to spend a few hours; no application does it better than Google Maps. Be as specific with your search as you want, Google Maps will pull up a very accurate list of results. From these results you can do any number of things; contact the venue, check in, read and post reviews or simply get directions. Google Maps really will mean you never get stuck looking for somewhere to go again.
5. Get home safely – Taxi Magic
Had a great night and ready to crawl into bed? Taxi Magic offers free nationwide taxi booking from its award winning interface. The application uses your geographic location to pull up a list of registered and trusted taxi companies. You can pretty much do everything except get in the taxi from your handset; book it with a few taps, track the arrival time and even pay for it. This app has won a number of awards and it is pretty clear why. Why risk waiting around or hailing a taxi when this app does pretty much everything for you.
