Grocery shopping 

Is there a better feeling than shopping online, especially if you have no time to do it yourself or you’re in quarantine? Rohlik.cz, Tesco, Everli or Kosik might be your saviours then. These apps are perfect for those who lack time to do grocery shopping themselves or for those who suffer from social anxiety. But hey, they can also be useful whenever you want to let yourself have a lazy day. 

Use filters to find exactly what you want with a slide of your finger without having to run around the store and ask people. And here’s another great pro-tip: for those who like to compare prices between markets, Kupi.cz is a really useful app that can help you track various discounts

 

Transportation 

If you’d like to check the schedules for e.g. metro, bus, trolleybus, and tram connections in one place, then IDOS is your friend. If you live in Prague, you can also download PiD Litacka, which you can use to buy tickets, which is really neat, especially if there’s no metro station around. Google maps are also pretty useful if you’re looking for transport schedules. 

If you prefer car trips, then Bolt and Uber can be really useful as they work basically just like a cheaper taxi. When it comes to train connections, Czech Railways and RegioJet can come in handy, even if you’d like to travel abroad. If you like to travel intercity by bus, then Flixbus is also a pretty cheap and a convenient option, in addition to RegioJet. 

 

Scooter and bike sharing

If you’re a fan of scooters, then you might find that Rekola, Nextbike, Lime or Bolt apps can help you to find the nearest scooters and borrow them for however long you prefer. What’s really neat is the fact you can leave the scooter almost anywhere and it can take you places that public transportation can’t.
