Energy Saving Apps on Your Phone

There’s an app for just about everything these days. Our smartphones have a variety of sensors and meters in them that make all sorts of innovative functionality possible. There are a variety of apps that make monitoring your energy consumption as easy as opening an app on your phone. Here are two apps that are designed to make being a homeowner a little bit easier.

WattBuddy for iOS 
Available for free for iOS only, WattBuddy is an incredibly useful, intuitive, and user-friendly electricity meter reader. By taking a picture of your electricity meter and connecting with your account through your electricity provider, WattBuddy can show your daily, monthly, and annual usage as well as ways you can save on electricity. 

Standby Energy Cost Calculator for Android
 While it’s true that the name isn’t very catchy, this app can definitely catch you some savings. Did you know that leaving appliances and even your cell phone charger plugged into the wall while they are not in use allows them to continue consuming energy? Some call this ‘trickling’ while others have termed this ‘vampire energy.' 
This app can estimate all the trickled energy your appliances, electronics, and chargers are wasting when you’re not using them. The figure can actually be quite alarming. The good news is that this app can help you to eliminate that unnecessary pull on your electricity, and it’s available for your Android smartphone for free.
