A variety of mobile apps can help you get the most out of your visit to Singapore. At the time of writing, all of the following were free and available for both iOS and Android devices.


Official weather forecasts, flood and dengue alerts, plus – so Singaporean – a hawker-centre locator.

SBS Transit Iris

Service information and journey planner for the North East and Circle MRT lines, and all of SBS’s buses.

Singapore Maps

Don’t bother with Google Maps while in Singapore – this app features super-accurate home-grown maps, based on state cartography, and includes real-time bus information and detailed business listings for each address.

SMRT Connect

Does the same for the rest of the MRT network, plus SMRT’s buses.


The official app of the Singapore Tourism Board repackages content from their website and lets you locate nearby points of interest.
