Applications that will make your life easier in London

Living in London is fine. But you will agree that in such large city there can be difficulties from time to time. And you know what? Some of them can be solved using 11 simple applications in a mobile phone.

If you got lost. You live in London for many years, have good navigational skills, but still you are not immune to the case when you do not know where to go. Free application City Mapper will help you to navigate in the city using almost any type of transport. City Mapper will help you find the fastest, cheapest and easiest route in the city. The application works in real time. CityMapper is available for iOS and Android.

When will your bus arrive? The London Bus Live Countdown application provides you with a per-minute update of your bus route. You will know exactly when it will arrive and wait time will decrease faster. London Bus Live Countdown is available for free for iOS and Android.

Is the cost of lunch out of control? Time for lunch... The opportunity to escape from the office and sate an empty stomach. Earlier you took with you boxes with food and sandwiches, and today you discovered the delights of London lunch. Suddenly, you became a gourmet and it was a big blow to your wallet. The Monzo app helps you to track your extravagant costs. Instant notifications allow you to monitor your expenses. Monzo is available for free for iOS and Android.

Do not get lost in the metro. You are clearly familiar with the situation when you hasten, without looking at the signs in the subway, to the train and the doors close right in front of your nose. These problems will be solved by the StationMaster. application, which is equipped with a convenient three-dimensional map of each station. The application allows you to build your own route through tunnels. It even has a guide about which door is best to enter to quickly reach your train. StationMaster is available on iOS.

Free booze? We all know that London is a very expensive city. Spending every night £ 10 is very questionable. The Drinki app works with a lot of London bars and nightclubs to offer you a free drink in each. It has an easy map of the participating bars, so you can compare and choose where to go best. Moreover, the more friends you invite to the application, the more free drinks you get. Drinki is available for free for iOS and Android.

The reservation is not a problem. London is the culinary capital. To avoid the situation when you want to have dinner on Friday evening, and all the tables are alredy taken, we propose to install the Opentable application. With its help you can make a reservation in the nearest restaurant, and a convenient classification of the kitchen simplifies the search. There are special offers and a system of points that you can exchange for vouchers. Opentable is available for free for iOS and Android.
