City map app

If you’re heading to London, then you should be aware that it is the UKs biggest and busiest city. That means getting around can be quite difficult if you’re not familiar with the complex backstreets. The transport system in London can also be daunting when everyone seems to be moving at 100mph. Citymapper is a highly rated transport app that will make find getting a cab or catching a bus much easier. The application is available on both major mobile platforms, and allows travellers to plan their journey and calculate the best route by automatically combining different forms of public transport.


Weather app

Anyone who lives in London, or anywhere in the UK, will know how unreliable the weather can be. It could be sunny in the morning and then raining by the evening, which makes planning your day quite difficult. AccuWeather gives you a constant live feed of weather forecasts, accurate to your specific location. You can see what the weather will be like for the next 15 days and plan your days accordingly. The app also gives you daily and hourly weather alerts so you can be prepared for any sudden weather changes throughout the day.

MasterCard ATM Hunter

Although technology has had a huge effect on the way we pay for things, a lot of shops and stalls still only accept cash payments, which means you’ll need to have some in your wallet just in case. If you don’t want to be wandering around trying to find a cash machine then the ATM Hunter App can help. By using your geolocation, the app will display a map that highlights all ATM machines in the surrounding areas. This will make sure you don’t get caught short when you find a trinket or souvenir that you want to buy.
