September’s Freshers’ week will see the launch of an iPhone app offering localised offers within the student market.
Student Aid Mobile is free to download at the iPhone App Store and offers a range of discounts on local restaurants, leisure activities, bars and shops.
The app establishes the student’s location and presents them with offers within their local proximity. They are then directed to the retailer with directions and a map on their phone.
Student Aid Mobile managing director Andy Fidler explains: “As a company set up and run by recent graduates, we understand the financial trials and tribulations of being at university. Student Aid Mobile has been developed with the long-term aim to make a student’s life as affordable, and easy, as possible.”
Also launched this September is Student-Aid.co.uk: a social networking website specifically for UK university students, allowing students to find and connect with friends in halls, clubs or on campus.
