I have been to Chicago over a dozen times in the past 20 years. It’s between my hometown in New York and Los Angeles, where I live now – so I am often through there. Here are some of the apps I use to help me get around there.
This is more than 50 Chicago apps in one place! It’s got more features than I ever could list here, but here’s some: dining, nightlife, art galleries, apartments, classifieds, subway info, maps, etc. Highly useful, pretty much the only travel app you’ll ever need for Chicago.
This is the Chicago Tribune app – weather, news, entertainment, bookmark and share functions, and great photos. Great app for Chicago residents!
Chicago Transit Tracker Lite
This free app lets you add and track your bus rides. Also has info with very accurate times and predictions for the Chicago CTA.
This is a great free traffic and weather app with a police scanner and weather radio updates. It’s a great way to plan routes without getting stuck.
Chicago Golf Guide
This is a community of local Chicago golfers that rate and review local courses. Has maps and info on more than a hundred courses in the Chicago area.
