- +

Bangkok life comes with its fair share of first-world problems i.e. "What restaurant should I go to for my two-hour lunch break?", "How can I get a taxi when the condo's security guard is sick?", "Is the number of my champagne-gold iPhone 5s auspicious enough?", "How should I direct my chauffeur to avoid traffic?" 

If you have ever experienced any of these headaches, you're in luck because we've done some research into smartphone and tablet applications that should smoothen your Bangkok life. All apps can be downloaded for free.

True to its name, Easy Taxi makes getting a taxi ride easier 24/7. You can request one through Easy Taxi by simply typing in a destination and pressing a few buttons. Your request will be shown to nearby certified drivers. Once a driver accepts your request, you can see where he is on a map (and gauge if you have enough time to pop into 7-Eleven before he arrives). You'll have to pay the driver B20 extra. This free application runs on iOS and Android devices. Read our interview with Easy Taxi's CEO in Thailand on our Profle page for more information.
