Apps let you have Tel Aviv in the palm of your hand

With the Succot holiday upon us and the weather cooling down, it’s a perfect time to get outside and explore what Tel Aviv has to offer. Instead of spending money on a bulky guidebook, we recommend simply downloading one of the many useful free smartphone applications available that can help navigate The White City.

There is no better time to start using mobile apps as just last week the Tel Aviv Municipality launched a citywide free wi-fi network, which it says will provide 80 free Internet “hot spots” across the city. Residents and visitors can log on at dozens of spots around the city such as the beach, tourist attractions and boulevards.

With so many apps out there it’s hard to choose the right one, so we’ve selected three of the best free ones that will help you make the most of exploring Tel Aviv.

Chronus City

Chronus City is a great app for those looking to venture slightly off the beaten track. The new app is a must for explorers wanting to learn about the history of Tel Aviv with the help of designated tours. Each tour includes an interactive map as well as text, video, audio and pictures at each step along the way.

Featuring a clean, modern design, the app is user-friendly so there’s no need to be a technology geek or a map expert in order to navigate it.
