Condo living offers a lot of perks to professionals who are always on the go. It provides easy-access to offices, restaurants, entertainment centers and of course, schools (see RSG St Scho Residens). It also gives people the option to live in prime locations without losing that homey feeling.
However, just like any home, there are chores and tasks that need to be done. It’s a good thing that there are free mobile applications to help you keep up with your fast-paced lifestyle.
Here are 5 must-have apps for people living in condos.
Laundry service: GetLaundry
GetLaundry is an online platform which helps busy individuals get their laundry serviced. This app is really great for working people who have no time to bring their own laundry to the shop. What the GetLaundry app does is connect the user to partner laundry services near the area of residence of the user.
All it takes is a few clicks on the app and laundry can be easily scheduled for pick-up from your condo. After all your clothes are done and ready, the person will get notified that it will be on its way back.
This app is really great and will save lots of time and headaches for people who just don’t have enough time to handle everything. There is even an option for express laundry service for when freshly laundered clothes are quickly needed. The clothes can already be done the next day.
One of the most time consuming and annoying tasks is paying your bills. Queuing up at long lines at payment centers is just a big NO for busy people. Luckily, there is Coins.ph.
Coins.ph is a company that allows people to buy, send, and receive Bitcoins to pay bills. But it is way more than just for paying bills. Users can also deposit to their bank, buy load, and a lot more using the online platform.
This is basically the easiest and quickest way to pay your bills. Condo dwellers wouldn’t even have to leave their unit to do this task. Maybe even pay their bills while stuck in traffic. It’s just effective and very convenient.
This is a really amazing app which helps users keep track of their housework. It’s like having a virtual assistant for your house cleaning activities.
Tody allows users to create a room by room schedule for tasks such as cleaning the bathroom sink, wiping the window blinds, or dusting the living room. There are a whole lot of presets which users can set-up though custom tasks can also be set. The app then suggests common sense intervals when the user would have to do the household tasks again.
Another great feature of this app is that it visualizes the tasks into colored indicators to show which ones are the top priority tasks.
Keep an eye out on expenses. Cost of living spikes up when living the condo lifestyle and it is very easy to lose track of budgeting the expenses.
Good thing there are apps available like Wally which can help in keeping track of finances.
The app lets users set a savings target, spending budget, and income. All of these can be quickly referenced in the app’s home screen. It also has a social aspect where users can track when and with whom are they spending their budget on.
Food service: Food Panda
Food service and delivery apps are basically heaven sent tools for condo-dwellers. No more need to get off the couch just to find something to eat.
Just click on the app and you’re food is on it’s way.
Food Panda is one of the most popular food delivery service app in the Philippines. It ties up with hundreds and hundreds of restaurants and food vendors.
You can find most of the food you want or currently craving for in their wide listing. Just dial in your location and Food Panda will generate a list of the restaurants and food places near you.
There are a lot of apps out there that will surely help condo living people to manage their housework but having these 5 apps on the phone will surely lessen some headaches.
