    Citymapper is a navigation app ideal for helping you use city public transport. At the moment they have networks of London, Birmingham and Manchester which tell you exactly what line, platform, direction and sometimes even the optimum carriage for your journey. They are constantly updating their list of cities which hopefully means they will include UK destinations outside of England soon as well.

    For longer train journeys between towns and cities, the Trainline app is your best tool. Train travel can often be very expensive in the UK if you don't plan in advance or know exactly when and where to find the best deal. This is where the trainline comes in handy. This app shows you the cheapest options for your route and allows you to book tickets with a simple stress-free platform. For some destinations you can even have your tickets downloaded directly to the app for ultimate travel simplicity.
