You can simplify your life by downloading these applications. Now I will tell you about the most popular applications that many foreigners are not aware of.
Very simplified and intuitive interface. You can find any information about public transport. Namely, when and what time a particular bus starts to ride, after how many minutes it will arrive, how many people are on the bus, etc. You can find information about any institution, work schedule, phone, menu and reviews. You can change the language to English in the application, so even if you don’t know Korean, you can easily use it.
#2. Korea Subway Bus
Subway is a metro map. Here you can check how to get from point A to point B. And how long it will take. All station names are in English, so there will be no difficulties in using.
#3. Coupang & Gmarket Applications
These are the two most convenient online store apps. Everything is sold here: vitamins, interior products, cosmetics, clothes, food, jewelry, etc. And here is a very fast delivery. If you order food before midnight, then the next day until 7 a.m. it will be delivered to your door. All products are fresh and neatly packaged. If you ordered clothes and it did not fit you in size, then you can make a refund (you need to pay only for shipping). Here you can even buy plane tickets at very competitive prices, find foreign products that are not sold in offline stores.
Go and earn! This is an application where you collect coins for the taken steps, and then you can buy a coupon for coffee, chicken, ice cream or a drink. Very good app. It is used by many korean people.
This is a Korean messenger. Most Koreans use this app only. Here you can correspond, chat via audio or video call, give coupons to friends, pay for purchases, search for information on the Internet, etc.
This is a translator from Korean to other languages. Very good app. But it, unlike other translators, translates only words. If this word is not in the dictionary, then you can find and read the meaning of the word in Korean. One of the best Korean translators I have ever used.
#7. ZigZag & ABLY Applications
If you like to shop and love Korean fashion, then download these 2 applications. If you like the style of Koreans, then you will definitely like this app. Here you can find clothes in the Korean style at any price category. From very cheap ($ 5-10) to very expensive and high-quality (from 10$ and above). The quality of the clothes you buy for 5-10$ is not very good, but the design is beautiful. I think this information is useful to students.
This application contains reviews of many cosmetic products for the face, hair and body. You can read reliable reviews of many products, and you can also choose cosmetics by skin type. But in order to see reviews of other people, you need to write one or more reviews on products. If you do not write a review, you will only see the first 5 reviews, and the rest will be hidden.
#9. Olive Young
Here you can find the largest selection of Korean cosmetics of different brands. If you have not used Korean cosmetics or just starting to try it, then you are definitely here. It has everything from care cosmetics to decorative cosmetics. This store contains all the most popular brands. You will find cosmetics for the body, hair, skin, various types of popular chocolate and drinks, cookies and other sweets.
