Lots of discussion flowing (seriously, it wasn't an intentional pun) motivated by aster1x's Catch The River idea in the Commuting Change challenge. And here is an app to enhance that experience if any of you London commuters want to give it a try. Tickets timetables - I haven't used it yet.

One thing that has struck me reading through all the ideas in this challenge is that we seem to fall into two distinct camps and one blurry third! There are those who do not want to use apps whether through lack of a compatible device or through choice, those who wouldn't  leave the house without them and those who seem to feel a subconscious pressure to use them because others do and we seem to be evolving into an App driven society. It all seems a bit App Azard. I think it may be a...

Health doesn't seem to be an issue that's come up so far. Maybe we are all too healthy for it to be a consideration! But I thought it might be worth drawing attention to a couple of apps; Your Travel Health and Travel Health Guide. One seems to deal with potential health risks in specific locations so you can identify what  vaccinations you might need. The other seems to deal with actual medical or first aid situations. I think its relatively easy to get information abut any injections...

Aster1x idea in Travel Hacks on Splitting Tickets reminded me of this app Tickety Split which is operated by the Money Saving Expert. You can search for and split train tickets and also access latest money saving tips and also the main website where there are lots of tips on how to save money on travel and how to make complaints and claim compensation. We used a template on there when claiming compensation from Easyjet for a delayed flight. Split ticketing means grabbing two tickets for...

If like me you're a frequent flier, you should definitely take a look at "App in the Air" . It records all the info about your flight, alerts you about things like check-in times etc. It also gives you estimates on how long security etc should take.   I've found it very useful and love the travel checklists it has too!

Social media has already had a few mentions and I think Twitter deserves a mention too. Twitter tweets are a very good way of getting fast updates on travel related matters. If you follow the right companies you will get updates on trains, buses, trams,planes, roadworks, traffic jams, weather etc. It is also good if you need to escalate a complaint or issue to a company and get a fast response. My partner complained about Easy jet delays and lack of information on Twitter on two occasions...

I used to go to University in Winchester, that was a 3 hour commute on train as I would have to go into london through Essex and then back out to Hampshire.  I often used the Trainline.com app on my phone to book my tickets. But I would have assumed if something was wrong with my journey, like an hours long replacement bus from woking to winchester, that it would have been displayed on the app, as this was something I wouldn't know. I just assumed if something was going to make my journey...

I use the TravelWest Bus Checker app (on Android) as the local bus services are often running late and the bus stops don't have electronic boards.  The app works off the trackers in the buses themselves so gives a pretty accurate idea of where they are (if their tracker is working, but hey, if it isn't not even First Bristol seems to know where their bus is so can't fault the app!)  Very useful, especially if I'm running late in the morning and need to know if I should bother running or not!

OK this isn't really an app it's a driverless car but I bet it will come with apps.  Would you trust this?  If not, avoid Greenwich for a bit!  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-35432687
