I lived in the Bay Area for 6 years and spent a lot of time in the South Bay. Here are some apps I used to get around Palo Alto.
Bay Area Traffic
This app has bay area traffic info. You can get images from traffic.511.org and detailed traffic info for any route in the Bay Area
This free app has food, drink, activity and other specials in the area. It has a lot of cities including Palo Alto, and a lot of other cities in the Bay Area as well. Definitely has saved me some money.
This free app lets users earn rewards at local Palo Alto and Mountain View businesses Great discounts to be had here!
This app has the local times for movies in Century, CineArts, Cinemark, and Tinseltown theaters. Also has info for the theater and shows theaters on a map.
This free app is GPS enabled and gives interactive news from Palo Alto Online and the Palo Alto Weekly. Local news, sports, headline news, and Palo Alto Online Twitter updates. Recommend.
