Moving to the UK: Useful Mobile Apps

Have you recently moved to a city in the UK? Mobile apps can save you hassle when it comes to moving abroad. They are useful for using on the go, accessing them instantly from your phone! Send My Bag have put together this blog on the top mobile apps that can help with your move to the UK.


Zoopla started in 2008 and is now the UK’s leading property listing site. The Zoopla mobile app makes it even easier for people to search for homes to rent and buy in the UK. You may find yourself becoming hooked on scrolling through their properties!

Spare Room 

You are likely to pay less if you rent a room in a house or flat shared with other people. That’s where this mobile app comes in, as you can browse for rooms to rent in most UK cities. You can find like-minded people on the app who are also looking for someone to share a place with, and get in touch with them about living together.


Over 400 million international users are on this public transport mobile app. Trains and buses are widely used in the UK and so a mobile app like this will come in handy! You can access real-time data for the public transport in your local area, including live train and bus schedules and any delays. The app can also let you know what bus or train route to take based on times, and where the closest pick up point is to you.


Monzo is a mobile-only bank with extra features – you can get set spending budgets, divide money into categories (or Monzo ‘pots’), make domestic and international payments, get payment alerts and many more. The shiny coral Monzo bank card is also very cool!

Meet Up 

Meet Up is a mobile app that is made for bringing people together in thousands of cities. The app will show you suggested social groups in your area based on the interests and hobbies that you choose. You can join as many groups as you want and attend the events that they hold. It is a great way to meet new people and, if you are looking for a job, there are usually business events you can attend that are good for networking.


A food delivery mobile app is most definitely useful! Deliveroo partners with some of the largest food chains and independent restaurants across the UK, meaning that you will not be short of tasty cuisines to choose from.
