Good Swiss phone apps?

Hello,

Fresh off the boat here. Can anyone tell me what the good, useful iPhone apps are for getting by in these parts? I have SBB, but that's it so far. Would love an app for restaurants, trams, travel, language, etc.

Thanks!

Check out Swisshiker if you like to travel and explore.
It's so Swiss that it doesn't even work if you are not physically in Switzerland

Re: Good Swiss phone apps?

Currently on "featured" part of App Store on iPhone if you are logged in on a Swiss account there is a special Swiss recommended banner with news/travel/various.

Me I use SBB / iSki Swiss / search.ch (for weather, phone & stuff) / 20 minuten for local news (in F/DE) / Swiss Peaks / City Guide Basel (but there are others) / Swiss Snow / Swiss Hike

Hope these help

Swiss specific apps I use all the time:
SBB (you already have it)
SwissSnow and White Risk if you're a skier Snowboarder.
Usgang for bars, clubs and concert events (it only tells you what's on, not what's good)
