Five apps to help you make the most of your city

1 – No more waiting in line at the clinic: Yes, you read that right! From now on you can wait at home instead of in a packed waiting room. After having registered online on Chronometric‘s website, you’ll be placed in a virtual waiting line and you’ll receive alerts when your turn is coming up. We have been dreaming about it, Chronometric did it. $3 service fee, available in Quebec.

2 – Pay for your parking without getting off your butt: No more running to the car for fear of getting a ticket. Just stay in the restaurant with your friends and use your phone instead. Once you have downloaded the app you can recharge the parking meter from a distance and track the remaining time. Then, you can relax.
PService Mobile: free. 30 cents service fee. On iPhone, Android and BlackBerry, available in Montreal.

3 – Manage your commutes down to the millimetre: What bus should I take? At what time is it coming? Where’s the next bus stop? Actually, wouldn’t the metro be quicker? Panic starts to set in. Don’t worry: Transit app has it all figured out for you. It’s like public transport GPS.
Transit App, free. On iPhone and Android, available in Montreal and all major Canadian cities.
