These apps are must-haves and will make your life easier in Poland:
What you need to know before you read:
We are frequent users of most of the apps listed below and the suggestions are 100% genuine.
Here and there you’ll see a referral code that grants you (and me) a small discount. Win-win.
If you sign up and transfer money through Transferwise we’ll get a small commission (at no extra cost for you). Thanks for supporting us! 🙂
Let’s get started.
BANKING AND FINANCE APPS:
1) SkyCash. A nice Multipurpose App
SkyCash is the best app you knew nothing about.
You can buy bus tickets in a matter of seconds, purchase cinema tickets that allow you to skip the line, or pay for parking fees without the need to find a parking tower. Very useful!
Actually, if you have a good banking app you can do such things already (more about the Millennium app later).
More stuff you can do with SkyCash:
Buy train tickets
Withdraw cash without a card (only from Euronet ATMs)
Get small travel insurance policies
Top up your phone, electricity meter or even your STEAM account (PC games) or PlayStation account.
Being an expat, you probably know about this one already.
Transferwise is the cheapest and fastest way to transfer money abroad. Banks and other providers could charge you up to 5% in hidden costs when sending money abroad, whereas TransferWise is transparent with the fees. Moreover, “90% of the transfers from the UK to Europe are completed within 1 business day”. Which is awesome if you need to move your money quickly.
Another alternative to pyszne, it allows you to order food to a different pool of restaurants. Thanks to UBER wide network of drivers and to UBER technology, delivery can be quicker (and you can track the order in real time).

I am using Orange as my mobile operator because of this incredibly cheap deal described here. If Orange is also your operator, you should download this app. It makes it seamless to find offers, top up your phone and check your remaining credit and bonuses.
I haven’t used apps for other mobile operators, so I’m not so comfortable suggesting them.
This idea is the brainchild of a Polish startup and the app is still in beta testing. It will make it easy to book sports facilities in your neighborhood, create teams of players and interact with other players.
