I lived in the Bay Area for 6 years and spent a lot of time in the East Bay. Here are some apps I used to get around Oakland.
Harborside Health Center
For medical marijuana patients that visit Harborside Health Center in either Oakland or San Jose. This app gives specials/discounts on every visit to mobile users! Also includes a menu.
This app has info and schedules for three roller derby teams in the Bay Area including The Oakland Outlaws. You can view photos, watch videos, and learn about the teams. Recommend!
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.
Bay Area Ferries: AnyStop
This app gives you real-time arrival and departure info for ferries in the Bay Area. Works well, very accurate, great if you are using the ferries to commute.
