Some might say that Los Angeles is a completely different world from the rest of the country, but whether you live there or are just visiting, these apps will help you survive your stay in LaLa Land.

California Traffic Report

Like you really need an app to tell you that you won’t be moving for the next 40 minutes. But just in case the traffic breaks and there’s a brief stretch of open road, you’ll want to know about it. This app will help you avoid delays, accidents and other show stoppers.

If I’ve learned one thing about living in LA it’s that there are a TON of places to get food. They’ve got a little bit of everything and trust me you’ll want to try it. This app is full of dining suggestions based on your location.

The best city guides are now available on your iPhone. This app includes detailed neighborhood descriptions telling you everything you need to know about where you are.

This app was originally launched for the Oscars, but just because those have passed doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to it. The app also offers access to Vanity Fair editorial content including background information on nominees, stories, photos, trailers and slideshows.



Lalawag is one of my favorite LA-specific tech websites. This app keeps you up to date with stories, tweets and videos. They also have a must-read weekly event calendar. It’s where I go for most of my networking needs.
