It is well known by all that smartphones have changed our lives for the better (in most cases). We use them for everything, and one of its main functions is to help us move around the city but, among so many applications in the App Store, which one to choose? From CP we are going to give you a hand so that you can reach any destination that you propose with the best urban mobility applications.
The best urban mobility apps for iOS
You just got to your city and you want to go to your hotel located in the center, but you discard the taxis for its excessive price. Public transportation is not for you and you want more comfort ... Well Cabify is your application. You can connect with private drivers willing to take you anywhere for an amount previously fixed, so you can enjoy stops at traffic lights without being outstanding as the meter goes through the roof. It is available in 11 countries, but if we want a more popular alternative outside Spain also have the well - known Uber .
If we are more classic but we do not like to be calling taxis already occupied, a great alternative is MyTaxi , that will put us in contact with taxi drivers throughout the city and we simplify the payment process, as we will from our mobile. His rival Hailo is also highly recommended, although in my experience, at least in Barcelona has more pull the first.
Sometimes we are the ones who want to get to a place on our own, with our car, by bike, or even walking. How could it be otherwise Google Maps is positioned as the king in this section, therefore its route, and its reliability and its many options. The alternative of Apple is not bad either, though for a great offline experience we also Maps.me , much more complete than Google downloads in offline mode. For a more social alternative, we Waze (acquired by Google), in which users inform us live incidents on the road.
Not everyone has a car as it is quite expensive both its price and its maintenance. But sometimes we need one for an occasional weekend break for example. Here comes into play amovens, hire private and quite cheaper than a traditional rental. You do not know how to drive, but do you know that it will be faster to drive? Sharing trip is a great alternative though amovens itself also gives you the option. Finally if you are a fan of electric cars, Car2Go is a fantastic option to move quickly through the city.
You have definitely seen that cars are not your thing and you prefer the option of public transport. Well you're not alone, because with Moovit know move around dozens of cities around the world as if you were a native there. Quickest route, additional information, incidents ... An equally good alternative, Citymapper , very similar and with a great community behind.
And you? Do you use any of these applications? Do you know any other options? Let us know in the comments!
