My boyfriend is from Finland and I am trying to learn a lot about Helsinki so that when we visit his parents I don’t come off as a total idiot. Here are some apps that are helping me accomplish that goal.

Andropas

This free version of Andropas shows you a map of Helsinki that includes a full transportation map with route, stops and lines, and also cycling routes. You can select your location via GPS, searching the map, or from your contacts or set favorites. It has a live map including departure and arrival times and will let you plan out and compare routes. Useful.

HSL Lippu / HRT Ticket

This time saver app helps you buy the mobile ticket for Helsinki transport (you can already buy it over your phone without the app, the app just gives you a shortcut that sends the code with one touch of a button).

Helsinki Testbed Weather View

Download a Helsinki weather map to your phone. The maps have temperature, rain, humidity, wind speed and direction, air pressure, etc. It doesn’t have DST settings, needs a slider to control the time rather than just having a repeated animation. Still – nice to have an offline weather map.
