6 Must-have Apps in Tel Aviv

From a virtual art gallery to maps of local must-dos, these six handy apps will help you decode the city.

Banana Beach

Banana Beach, one of Tel Aviv’s 60 free Wi-Fi zones.


If you’re in Tel Aviv (or London, Moscow or New York) and are weary of local traditions of haggling over black cab fare, or just want to avoid it, try this app that lets you call a taxi and set your destination and fare in advance. Gett has more cars than Uber in the city (without the surge pricing).

Android, BlackBerry and iOS

Cool Cousin

Choose criteria like age, relationship status and hobbies to find a Tel Avivian, Londoner, New Yorker, Parisian or Roman who shares your tastes in food, culture and pastimes, then follow their map of local must-dos.



In a city with a baffling and oddly mapless public transit system, this app, developed in Tel Aviv and now available for 1,000 cities around the world, fills in the gaps, making navigating by train and bus as easy as in your hometown.

Android, iOS and Windows Mobile




From Tel Aviv to Tokyo to Toronto (and more than 150 cities worldwide), break bread in the homes of top local chefs by booking a seat at their tables. Confirm what languages your hosts speak and pick from a variety of cuisines, from spicy Indian to authentic Israeli.


Using this portable art gallery of more than 1 million works by some 90,000 artists, you can shoot your favourite pieces and let Artbit’s image-recognition software tell you what they are, where to find more works and what others think of them. You can even contact the artists and arrange a purchase.

Android and iOS


Find and book a Tel Aviv public bike on this website, then zip along the glorious 14 kilometres of beachfront – or any other part of the city – before consulting the site again to find a docking station.
