Like most people, I have a slight addiction to my iPhone and living in NYC has made it much worse. However, thanks to the helpful apps available to download, I’m not sure I would survive here without it! Today, I’m sharing my 5 must have apps to download while living or visiting New York to make life and travel a little bit easier.
Postmates: While pretty much everything can be delivered in New York, there always seems to be that one restaurant that won’t deliver to your place (we’re looking at you, Shake Shack!). This bike delivery system will quickly pick up your requests and deliver them straight to you.
Citymapper: If you’re not familiar with the subway system or you’re just in need of mapping out your schedule for the day, this app instantly shares the best routes to take. It notes subway delays and compares the time differences between walking, driving or taking the subway—helping to make your commute stress-free.
TodayTix: For Broadway lovers or those looking for a last-minute city activity, TodayTix quickly finds discount tickets for the upcoming week (or night!), making it easy to have a classic New York evening.
Venmo: Whether you’re splitting a cab, attending a group dinner or divvying up drinks at a bar, this app becomes a lifesaver. Hooked up to your bank account, Venmo allows you to send money to your friends instantly without worrying about having cash on hand.
Classpass: Fitting in gym time can be difficult in a busy city, but Classpass is a favorite for those who love to try new workouts. With unlimited exercise classes each month for under $200, there’s no excuse to not get out there and get fit while having fun!
