There’s been a real digital surge in the UAE in the last five years, meaning there are now several stand out apps dedicated to the region.
Homegrown app Styck rewards you for exercise. It’ll set you daily or weekly fitness targets like the number of steps taken each day, and if you succeed you’ll unlock a prize, which range from high street coffees, paddle boarding sessions, discounted detoxes and more.
As mentioned elsewhere on the site, Careem is a newly launched chauffer service which will make you think twice about taking regular cabs. Simply log in and it’ll register your location by GPS and send a car whenever you want it, allowing you to pay by cash or simply ride and go using your online credit card account.
