Best Smartphone Apps


What would we do without our smartphones? It takes a lot of brainpower to remember what life was like before the smartphone invasion. Not only has the technology world evolved but also so has The City of Chicago. There are tons of smart phone apps to download free. The Chicago Transit Authority has an app web page. If you are a transit commuter, you want to make sure you check out this page and download some of the apps.

Here are some of my favorites for keeping myself connected at all times:

Redeye Chicago
Why waste time looking for a Redeye machine, just download the app and read the paper on your way in to the office.

Have you ever tried to flag down a taxi downtown after a big event? Good luck with that one. This app lets you call a cab with the touch of a button.

Four Square
A cool social media app best used when you are out on the town. This app allows you to check in to let others know where you are.

Chicago City Guide
This app is best suited for tourists. It gives you a selection of the most important points of interest.

This app features the easiest and quickest way to find some of the best restaurants in Chicago.
