If you think it's too difficult to switch energy suppliers then a new app launched this week could help change your mind. Voltz is the UK's first energy smart-switching app which allows users to switch with just a few taps on their mobile.

It's aimed at the three-fifths of Britons who have never switched energy supplier and, crucially, it's free. It's only on IOS right now but should be available to android users next month.

How does it work? You have to register – which takes three minutes, I'm told – and enter your details to switch. After that, the app will alert you when it's time to switch again – or tell you if you're already on the best deal. The company behind the app is Simplify Digital – a broadband comparison site – which tells me it can give Voltz free to consumers because it hopes to make money from it through licensing deals.

It costs nothing to give it a try but it could make switching energy deals – and saving cash – easier than it's ever been before. And that can only be good news for hard-pressed consumers. You can get more details at
