There’s an app for that! Whether it’s to find a willing walker for your furry-best-friend, or where to find the nearest public bathroom, some apps were almost made for life in NYC. We have put together a list of seven (actually nine) apps that will definitely come in handy for New Yorkers, enjoy:
This app is for coffee drinkers on a budget. It charges you for a subscription, say 15 cups of coffee for $30, and when you run out you can buy 15 more. You can use it at participating indie coffee shops around the city.
The concept is similar to Cups, but with booze rather than coffee. If you have this app, you can get discount drinks for one hour at participating bars, even if their official happy hour is over.
Wag makes owning a dog easier by connecting dog owners with dog lovers in New York City. They can hire dog lovers on-demand for dog walking, dog sitting, or dog boarding services 7-days a week. Thing Über meets Tinder, but for dog lovers/owners.
Never miss that once-in-a-lifetime sale at your favorite store again. ShopDrop has a map with all the sales near you or sends you an alert when you’re close to a store that’s holding a sample sale.
Central Park App
Even if you’ve lived here all your life, you’ll never be able to navigate every square inch of Central Park without consulting a map. The Central Park app shows you exactly where you are in the park, and how to get where you want to go.
Sit or Squat
This app is just so handy. We’ve all been trapped at a busy intersection, legs crossed, desperate for the bathroom and with no idea where the closest one is. Sit or Squat helps you find a usable bathroom in your area.
Speaking of budgets, everyone in NYC needs one, and our favorite personal budgeting app is Goodbudget. It lets you allocate a certain amount of money for each category of your life, and record your purchases in each category to keep track of spending

Welcome to the go to food app for many New Yorkers. Order food delivery near you from the app that, they say, “knows New York best”. Get great restaurants, full menus in this free to use NYC staple.
