You may very well be one of the lucky few heading to London (or perhaps already in London) for this year’s Olympic games.

We’ve already take a look at how to keep up with the Olympics but you might have a more difficult job navigating your way around London. In this roundup, we’re going to take a look at a bunch of apps useful for those visiting London, even when the Olympics aren’t on.
