Sometimes an app that knows London better than you do can be really handy.

Uncover – is set to revolutionise London’s dining scene and become the ultimate life hack for London foodies and tourists alike. Uncover allows you to discover last minute spaces at the most desirable London restaurants; be it trendy new hotspots, neighboured gems, or Michelin starred classics. Already reaching 100,000 users and with over 275 restaurants on the app, it is clear that the app is growing in popularity, helped with the fact that customers are now able to pay using Apple Pay. As an extra incentive, new users can receive £10 off their bill when they book any restaurant with the app, for the first time.

 Citymapper – the ultimate app for travelling around London. It will show you clear maps, along with train, tube, bus, walking and cycling options for your journey.

 Yahoo Weather – with English weather notoriously unreliable, the accurate hourly, daily and 10 day forecasts will allow you to prepare, whether you need to bring sunscreen, an umbrella or a ski jacket (it been known for us to have all four seasons happen in one day) on your travels.

 Twickets – your saviour for all sold out events, thanks to the magic of technology. The app allows you to search for tickets that you thought were a million light years away, and then safely buy them from other members at face value or less.

 Hotel Tonight – find amazing last minute deals on top rated hotels. Perfect for spontaneous getaways.
