This app helps you to do just what the names says, find services and establishments near your location. Categories listed include banks/ATM, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, gas stations, hospitals, hotels, movie theaters, taxis, etc. Within each category, it lists phone numbers, websites, and reviews. That’s very convenient especially when you’re in a foreign country.

Sky Scanner

Find travel deals with this app. You can find cheap last minute flights, hotels, and cars. I love Sky Scanner because unlike many other flight search engines, Skyscanner allows you to select “Everywhere” in the “To” box and you’re able to expand your potential destination locations.
