The ENTERTAINER London 2016 – www.theentertainerme.com/London – is a new app featuring over 900 Buy One Get One Free offers for restaurants, bars, nightclubs, attractions and spas across the capital. Whilst my nightclub days in the big smoke are well and truly behind me the rest of the offers certainly piqued my interest.
Although the app may seem to be for those living and working in the city, The ENTERTAINER London can bring a ton of savings to those visiting the capital too, especially families. (Check out my post on money saving ideas for enjoying London life here)
With a one off payment of £40, the ENTERTAINER London 2016 is valid for one calendar year with no weekend exclusions.
Over 50 of the available buy-one-get-one-free offers on the new app have an estimated savings value that is higher than the cost of the app itself, so it is pretty easy to make your money back by redeeming just one or two offers.
We trialled some of the features of the app this weekend and have to say that from the two offers we selected we already saved the price of the app itself. (My next post is going to be about the fab time we had whilst in London this weekend.)
The app offers customers a location-based search to find the best deals close to them and a savings calculator that shows how much cash has been saved throughout the year.
Another great part to purchasing the ENTERTAINER London 2016 is that you will receive a free copy of the ENTERTAINER Travel, which features over 300 ‘Buy One Room Night, Get One Free’ offers in hotels including Fairmont, InterContinental, Shangri-La, Hyatt, Radisson, Sofitel and Sheraton throughout the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia & Indian Ocean and North America. These are all redeemable through the same app.
With each offer being Buy One Get One Free, the app is a real money saver so you can enjoy spending time with friends and family making your cash go a lot further during your time in the city.

I was recently asked to review the Storytime Sounds App that has produced by the lovely notonthehighstreet team. The app is primarily for the iPhone (but it works on an iPad too) and is designed to bring an extra element of fun to story time for families with kids aged 3-7. Another great factor is that is FREE! G loves stories and we read regularly so I was interested to see how it would work and how much fun it would be. When I first downloaded the app I didn’t think it would be that exciting as it is just a collection of sounds to use to add another dimension to storytelling. However the developers obviously know what tech-savvy kids like as G absolutely loved it and couldn’t stop playing with all the different sounds. (Even running my battery right down this afternoon). He was in hysterics at some of the funnier sounds from the aliens and thought one of them sounded like Daddy snoring.
The app has 5 soundboards for different storytelling themes (pirates, fairytales, lost world, space and monsters) with a recent update that includes a Halloween theme. You can download the app https://itunes.apple.com/gb/
app/storytime-sounds/ id883691199?mt=8 and if you head over to thenotonthehighstreet blog they have also written a short story as a starting point for your storytelling adventures, which can be found here: http://blog. notonthehighstreet.com/2014/ 10/21/a-halloween-story/
Sadly I haven’t been able to get any photos of G enjoying the app as I haven’t been able to get near my phone since he got his hands on it. Being free just make this app even more appealing but I would definitely have been happy to pay for it. Absolute hit in our household, thank you notonthehighstreet. Will be looking out for more of their apps in the future.
