Top 5 Must Have Android Apps for New York City

Feb 24, 2011

I have family and many friends in New York City. New York is one of those dense places so full of variety that having a guide can open up layer after layer of the Big Apple.

NYC Bus & Subway Maps

This free app is essential because when you are down in the subway you will not get reception so having a subway map downloaded to your phone makes sense!


Food Truck New York

This app lists many of the food trucks in New York and it updates – usually weekly. I used it successfully to find a green food truck.


New York Travel Guide – mTrip

This app from mtrip is US$5.99. It’s a trip planner for New York City with some very snazzy features including augmented reality, electronic postcards, travel guides, and itinerary tools. It’s an offline tool.


New York News

A great free way to keep in touch with the local NYC news from about a dozen sources.



This free app is the best way to get all the listings of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows that are sold at the TKTS discount booths. A good tip for those looking to see a live show at a discount – you can use this app instead of going to see if there are tix available.
