I'll have to check out Maps.me. I'm always needing a good map app wherever I am (and I don't always have a sufficient connection for Google Maps).

I live in NYC and use several apps. The NYC Transit app.and the green Transit app specific for NYC are both excellent. Using the GPS on my phone they not only advise when the next bus is due but track the route and show the current location of the bus. 

The MTA LIRR Train app is an excellent tool for planning trips to Long Island via the LI railroad.

I always look at Tripadvisor when checking out an area anywhere in the world to travel.  What I particularly like are all of the user photos for a location.  These photos show you things that many hotel and attraction websites do not include.  Also you can take people's opinions with a grain of salt.  However their ratings system for best hotels, best locations, etc are a good starting point for a trip. I use it mostly for road trips.

I have been to nearly 50 countries and still traveling at 70. Favorite app...Maps.me. It does not require WiFi nor Data Roaming to use...anywhere in the world!

What travel apps do you use? Any you can't do without? 

 

Here are several handy options from AARP: https://travel.aarp.org/articles-tips/articles/info-2017/travel-apps-for-road-trips.html

 

Any others you would recommend?
