Millennial is a word hated by some but embraced by many. Love them or hate them, they are the most energetic and potent working population right now. In the tech space, there are many apps dedicated to this demographic. Being a millennial myself, I use these apps on a daily basis and they are most useful. Among a bunch, here are the top 5 apps that I use and which are dedicated to the millennial.
Ah, Food! We millennials love our food as much as we love our phones. Not just any food, we love eating out a lot. From trying out the new place in town to grabbing a quick bite, we are always chomping on something. But visiting a physical location has its own set of predicaments. For one, we may not have the time or we may be just too lazy to go out.
Enter Foodmandu, an app made from the heavens itself. This nifty little app helps you order the food you love from the convenience of your phone. With a wide variety of restaurants, you can order any item you like. You can also store favorite restaurants that you order the most from for easy access. And when you do decide on what you want to have, just click and your food will be at your doorstep within the hour.
eSewa is the largest and the most functional online payment gateway of Nepal. You can pay a lot of bills and fees from the app. From having to recharge your phone to paying the electricity bill, you can do it all here.
Having to go places to pay a simple bill is always a hassle. Thanks to eSewa this is no longer an issue! Be it the internet bill or a movie ticket, you can pay for it through the app. Maybe you are planning a weekend getaway; you can book flights or hotels straight from the app. I mean how cool is that? Or if you are someone like me who freelances, writing articles and designing graphics, you can easily receive payments, and transfer them to your bank account, without any hassle.
Instagram is one of the go-to social media apps for us millennials in Nepal. We love sharing memories with friends and family. Maybe it is a picture of a gourmet dish or moments from our weekend adventure, we just have to post it!
Instagram also has stories which enable you to share your photos for just one day. This is a great way to share photos these days. The app also has a ton of features that help take some fun looking photos and videos. From Boomerang to the new filters, Instagram is a fun app to use.
A millennial is between the ages of 22-37, and most likely scouting great job offers. Mero Job is an app that compiles the latest vacancy announcements from different companies. You can easily find the company or the post that suits you and apply from the app itself. There is also an option to save the job to apply at a later date. Finding jobs couldn’t get any easier!
Pathao is a ride-sharing app that provides on-demand transportation. A few clicks and we can summon a bike/scooter to take us to our destination. In case you are worried about the safety of the service, you can share the ride information with your loved ones. Pathao is inexpensive as well! Additionally it can be a way to earn a quick buck for the millennial. If you own a bike or a scooter, you can sign-up with Pathao and make an income on the side.
