7 Fantastic Apps Every New Yorker Needs to Have ...

There are so many fantastic apps for New Yorkers. Whether you're a native, just moved in, or just visiting, New York welcomes all. However, it's very easy to get distracted there and that's why there are certain apps that are designed specifically to help you out. Check out some of the apps for New Yorkers and then let me know which ones are the most beneficial to you.

1 Sit or Squat: Restroom Finder

On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Price: Free
I can't tell you how many times I've wished for an app like this. It can help you find public restrooms near you or where you're planning to travel! If you're wandering aimlessly around in the city, you need to download this app. You'll no longer have to pop into restaurants where you know you're not really welcome. This app will definitely come in handy and it's just one of many apps for New Yorkers.

2 Uber

On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Price: Free
Uber can be a total life saver. You can request a ride using the app and get picked up within minutes. You can even track your driver as you wait! Uber offers 'on-demand service' which means no reservations are required (and no more having to wait in those huge taxi lines). You'll never need cash on hand - all you have to do is add a credit card to your Uber account and you'll get emailed a receipt whenever you arrive at your destination. Have you used Uber before?

3 Embark Nyc

On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Price: Free
Embark NYC makes it easy to get around New York! It's an interactive subway map and offers directions to any address or landmark. You can tap any station to be able to see the upcoming scheduled trains and even a street map. The app also shows you delays and can send you push alerts that are customized to your routes. The best part about it? It works without cellular signal!

4 Urban Daddy

On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Price: Free
This app is perfect to help you decide where you want to dine tonight. The app asks you questions like who you're with, what day it is, etc. before recommending you the hottest spots around you. It'll show you venue descriptions, photos, and even offer you directions. Whatever you need for your perfect night, the app has definitely got you covered.

5 Doughbot

On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Price: $0.99
I don't know about you, but I always see someone eating a donut in NYC. Every time I see that, I get a craving for a donut! That's where this app comes in handy. Basically, it lets you know where the nearest donut shop is to you. That way, you don't have to settle for the stale ones at 7-11. It's great!

6 Postmates

On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Price: Free
Now, every store and restaurant in your city delivers! Postmates is a passionate community of drivers and riders who pick up your food and deliver it to you. That means you can get food from places that don't even offer delivery themselves! The deliveries start at $5 but their fast, friendly, 24/7 delivery service, it's well worth it.

7 Breather

On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Price: Free
Breather gives you access to private, beautiful spaces. Whenever you need some alone time, some place that's quiet and allows you to unwind, go on this app. It shows you spaces around you that can be rented out by the hour. Breather rooms have been designed to help you focus, work, meet clients, and/or relax. Amazing, right?

Well, there you have it. These are just seven out of many awesome apps that every New Yorker needs! Of the list, which apps can't you live without? If you know of any that aren't on the list, feel free to share about them in the comments section!
