The three day festival is almost upon us
The greatest summer festival is almost upon us and so here is a list of apps and gadgets that will help make Electric Picnic that bit better!
Mobile network Three have worked with the festival organisers to produce an app for the weekend, which includes the full line up and site maps, but here's some bits and pieces to help get you ready for the weekend.
uPackingList - Free on both iOS and Android
The hardest part of heading to any festival is the packing, and so uPackingList provides a handy checklist to take the pain away.
It covers all kinds of trips from business and picnics to family holidays and camping. It’s possible to export lists within the app to email.
Transport for Ireland Real Time Ireland - Free on both iOS and Android
Transport for Ireland’s app provides the user real time data for Dublin Bus, Bus Eireann, Luas and Irish Rail. This makes travelling to Stradballly, or any destination in Ireland extremely easy. The app allows users to set reminders for when their bus or train is approaching their stop, ensuring they are not left stranded!
Festival Ready - Free on both iOS and Android
This app is made by the folks behind the Swiss Army Watch and Knives. Victorinox’s Festival Ready app is multi-functional, but has a clean cut design making it extremely user friendly. Here are just some of the features within the free app:
Find My Friends - Free on Android
While the site of Electric Picnic is rather self contained and well laid out, people get lost; and often. Find My Friends is a free app which allows users to find their pals using GPS on their phones, preventing a constant stream of “can you hear me now, where are you?!” conversations.
Battery HD - Free on iOS and Android
There is no point in having a flashy phone with a super camera if your battery runs dead This app will help optimize your battery life, until a charging port becomes available
