The world has gone mobile. These cool new apps will help you keep up…
Official TIFF App – iPhone – Free
A Toronto film lover’s dream, the official Toronto International Film Festival app keeps you up to date on all the hot films at this year’s fest. Check out schedules and film descriptions, watch trailers, and even buy tickets on the app. The only drawback is that it won’t get you into exclusive parties or help you spot celebs… maybe they’ll have that in version 3.0.
Waze – Android – Free
Waze is a crowdsourced navigation and traffic app that will revolutionize your commute. It collects real-time data from other drivers who are running the app and tells you exactly which routes are moving fast, and which routes are jammed. It’s so much more than a navigation app. The thing learns your favourite routes and commuting times, allows user input of accidents, speed traps, and construction, and can even find the cheapest gas station along your route. Where there’s a will, there’s a Waze.
Track My Car – Blackberry – Free
It’s been a long day at Canada’s Wonderland and all you want to do is grab your car and get home. Where did you park again? Section A12? Or was it L78? Why slog through acres of vehicular wasteland when you can just use the Track My Car app? Mark your car’s location with the app, and when you want to find it again, use the app’s map or augmented reality function to find your car with ease. Don’t be that guy who has to activate his car alarm. Think of the children. Use Track My Car.
