I love London because I speak the language. 🙂 It’s great to have that European feel and still be able to navigate easily. Here are some apps that make it even easier.
London Evening Standard
This app is from the London Evening Standard and provides free quality coverage of local, national and international news. Also has events, sports, business, entertainment, lifestyle. It’s a bit glitchy.

ubiCabs -Book taxis & minicabs
This free app lets you get a quote with very detailed info about the cars, fares, and more – and book a ride with licensed minicaps in Central London. You can also call them to get cab service outside that area, anywhere in the UK. Easy and useful.
