9. Google Maps
As you might have experienced it by yourself that Google Maps is just the best, as no matter where you go, they will help you reach your destination. Besides, there are also apps like WhereTo.sg and GoThere, which can be kept as a backup option, if by any chance, Google Maps is unable to deliver you the expected results. But the way Google works, it is faster, always updated, and easy to use. Although Apple Maps have gotten better with time as it integrates third party data, which results in a better user experience. Moreover, Singapore has a bad GPS and most of the time; it is difficult to find the exact location.
Those people, who love to travel but hate driving from home to office and back in traffic conditions, can enjoy the luxury of Uber as it is cost-effective and highly convenient. The only thing to remember is the pick up location which makes it easy for the drivers to locate the destination, as they are prone to get lost or pretend to be unaware at times. Furthermore, as you already know that the GPS services are a bit secondary, Uber also faces relevant issues. On the other hand, NETS wallet will no longer bother you, but the new drivers will surely give you a flimsy ride.
Singapore, with its classic mall culture, allows you to purchase all the goods that you are looking for, at a single place- the mall. But due to the location of the malls such as the Ion Mall, which is very complex to navigate, Pocket Malls Singapore is built to help you. It quickly finds the places and stores you are looking for, and thus, is a very useful app as it saves a lot of time.
For the people who just entered the city with zero knowledge about the places to visit, hotels to book and food to eat, this app is very useful. It has all the necessary details you need to fetch about the shops, facilities or services, restaurants, etc. It also gives you the schedule or estimated time of the flights and their numbers.
This app is designed to display the real-time air quality indices. The app tells you that going outside can be harmful to your health, i.e., if the Pollutant Standard Index (PSI) crosses the 100 bar, you can fall sick. Global Air Quality shows the overall PSI breakdown along with other harmful chemicals mixed in the air. Besides, it also compares the city with other nations. In the haze month, Singapore ranks #1.
The myENV is an overall health inspector that gives its views on the city’s environmental conditions in all the aspects, like food quality, beach water quality, haze, etc. Furthermore, you will also find a map that bestows the hawker centers, which helps you find cheap food.
14. SG Now
All you want to know about the culture, traditions, and different colors of Singapore is available on SG Now. It gives you information about the nearest exhibitions, concerts, movie theaters, etc. It is the best way to plan your tour and visit the most happening places of the city.

All the three listed above are the guides to good food corners. Yelp has a great set of reviews, while Foursquare offers a better location data. Although, new food hubs cannot be experienced on the basis of their reviews, so, it’s better to opt the ones that are suggested in the curated lists or recommended by magazines and blogs. Hence, Burpple comes into play, as it has the finest list of the food outlets with great deals and trustworthy reviews.
Singapore is not a very big city. Almost every night, all the restaurants get full; therefore, don’t expect to find a free table at the drop of a hat. Furthermore, there are no such iOS apps that can help you get an open table any time you want. Hence, you need to use these two apps to book a table for you. From a wide range of restaurants, you can choose the destination of your night meal. Chope has fewer options in comparison to HungryGoWhere. Besides booking online, do remember to do the same on the telephone.
18. Happy Go Wild
The name is surely taken from the one we were discussing above, the HungryGoWhere app. However, the app is designed for the people who love to share some drinks with their friends, as they can find a good spot to booze with a happy hour tag. The most intriguing part about the app is that it also shows the countdown for the happy hour, which is truly cherished by the happy drinking people.
Yeah, the name is a wordplay of 9gag, which is one of the most popular sites in the world. So, you can imagine how Singaporeans have re-forged the idea into their own culture and have created a crazy app for their own laughter and happiness. It is the best time-pass for the residents of Singapore.
If you feel awkward hanging out amid the local residents of the Singapore due to the language barrier, feel free to download the HoSay app. This app provides you with a wide range of popular and repetitive Singaporean Slangs.
