What are your must-have apps for commuting – whether it’s into London or across the world?
Google Wallet – this might be something more for early adopters than something you can use widely, but anywhere you can use a contactless card you can now use Google Wallet. Turn your phone into your credit card.
Boingo‘s Wi-Finder – locates WiFi hotspots and includes a VPN to safeguard your information, as well as giving you access to a data tracker that can help you prevent running up data charges when you’re not connected.
Dropbox – we mentioned it before and we’ll mention it now – this is the ultimate tool to sync files, back things up and share documents. View from your phone, your laptop or your tablet and keep on top of changes made by others.
