I used to live in Chicago – it’s a great city. The only worthwhile part of the midwest (except maybe Minneapolis). 🙂 Here’s my favorite Chicago apps!
This app costs $3.00 and has everything you need to know about transportation in Chicago. Get real-time predictions and trip time estimates for CTA buses and trains as well as Pace buses. You can save faves and routes and set alerts, as well as search by route, stop, line, etc. Great trip planning and mapping features and the app is updated all the time. Very useful!!

This free app has news from all the best local news sites including the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, CBS, NBC, ABC, and more. Great and comprehensive local news source!
Keep up on all things Bears with this sports news app from the Chicago Tribune. Allows some convenient tracking of players and lists on Twitter. Save favorites, share articles, and more! Useful.
