Citymapper is our favourite app of the year, so we couldn’t very well leave it off this list. A bright, simple journey-planner for London and New York (hopefully more cities will be added soon), it takes almost everything into account when plotting you a route from A to B – traffic, disruptions, every form of transport available, all kept up to date – and throws in handy extras like subway maps and weather info. You’ll never get lost again.

Tiny Tower (Free)
Colourful 8-bit graphics and simple but addictive gameplay make this casual title one of the most popular games around. Build a tower (a tiny one!) and then manage the businesses and ‘bitizens’ inside.
