    Money-saving apps

    Hi,

    Im a journalist at the South China Morning Post researching an article about apps and websites that help Hongkongers save money.

    Can anyone on here recommend any great apps or sites that they use?

    There was a thread in the computer section where they list apps people use regularly, I guess you could look in there.

    I use Amazon and eBay Canada.
    Both to save money and purchase items I can't get in Hong Kong.

    Of course, GeoExpat.com helps us find items locally through member recommendations and I have successfully bought and sold using Geo's classifieds.

    I see lots of the bigger shopping malls have apps that have offers..Think Langham place and K11 have apps that do location based stuff to encourage you to explore the mall with incentives.

    There's an app for Android called "Moneywise" that can help you calculate your daily expenses and manage your budget.

    There's an app called "google search" where you can find websites to download movies, music, and programs for free.

    Not to mention compare prices among different websites, find maps online rather than buy them etc...

    www.price.com.hk does have an android app. Although the website seems to be more useful.
