Mobile Phones Help Busy Brits Make The Most Of Free Time

Ever-expanding capabilities of modern mobile phones are helping 36 million Brits to get organised and use their free time more effectively.

Those with the latest high-end devices such as the Apple iPhone 5 or LG Nexus 4 can take advantage of access to a huge range of tools through the App Store or Google Play.

More than a quarter of respondents to the NS&I's Quarterly Savings Survey said that they have utilised these apps to help complete personal admin.

Banking, budgeting and money advice tools are helping more people to control their finances on-the-go, meaning less time is spent poring over statements at home.

Calendars and to-do lists built into the majority of modern handsets are also allowing owners to keep organised and set themselves reminders.

Over half of Brits are making phone calls and sending texts in their free time to get organised, perhaps utilising tools like Skype and BT SmartTalk to call companies for less.
