Thaiger deals Thaiger deals

Apps have changed the way we do a lot of daily, ordinary, tasks. Living in Thailand ,we have bench tested a range of apps and decided on the Top 10 most useful apps currently available, most of them are free, or have a free version. So many previously complicated or time-consuming tasks are now so much simpler, and sitting in the palm of our hands.

When it comes to translating, ordering food, booking a flight or transferring money, we can do it in seconds thanks to these great apps.

Michael Kenner is The Thaiger’s app-ologist, an enthusiastic user of many apps and has road tested many of them to come up with his final list of ten most useful apps for people living in, or travelling to, Thailand.

Some quick links to some of the apps mentioned…

    for me its, BeNeat (cleaning lady), Tinder, Instagram, google maps, Kbank, Wise can be good but not the most useful, Binance is great.The thaiger is not useful, its just entertaining to see what china is approving of mediawise, the real story is never what’s posted.

    Transferwise. The best for exchanging to Baht. Better exchange rate than banks and better exchange rate.
