5 Mobile Apps In Singapore You Probably Cannot Survive Without
Everyone’s phone holds a treasure trove of applications that are beneficial to their lives in one way or another. We need it to track the arrival timings of our buses, find the best deals in town or even to book a cab to work or school when we are all flustered in the mornings – all these which can save us a ton of time and money with just a click of the button. For every Singaporean, you should have at least 2 to 3 of the applications that we are about to introduce in your phones because you probably would not be able to survive in Singapore without them.
1. SG Buses
The SGBuses app is almost God-sent, albeit how it may sometimes crash on us on days when the bus arrival timings are unavailable. On days when it is working fine, it shows us the routes of every bus in Singapore, the ETA at our designed bus stops and also allows you to find bus stops that are available on every road.
Need a taxi ride or want to book a GrabCar? One of the perks of booking a Grabcar with Grab is that it shows you the exact amount which you have to pay for the trip, giving us a good gauge on whether we should even take the Grabcar or should try other alternatives. They have recently introduced a GrabHitch function where you can hitch a ride at only half the price! We must say that it is pretty worth it!
Not sure where you should to head to for lunch or dinner? Well, Burpple offers extensive visual guides and food reviews on almost every gastronomical finds in Singapore – restaurant, cafes, hawker food or even what you should eat at each coffee shop for you to make up your minds within the snap of a finger!
PopCorn gives you an overview of all the movies that are currently showing in Singapore, as well as the theatre and the time slots that it is being aired. It compiles data from all the movie theatres in Singapore – Golden Village, Cathay, Shaw etc to give you a comprehensive list – something that we would prefer than having to toggle between different sites.
5. Carkpark @ SG
This car parking application allows you to source for the available parking lots within shopping malls or even heartland areas, and also tells you the parking fees so that you will be able to find the best spot for your cars!
