Using a smartphone

As smartphones have become one of the most popular gadgets in the world, their apps are proving to play major roles in our lives. To help you get the most out of your smartphone, we have provided a list of some of the most useful apps to use, if you are living in Ireland.

Real Time Ireland

The Real Time Ireland app is the only app that provides real time departure information for Dublin Bus, Bus Éireann, DART, Iarnród Éireann & Luas services. With a range of features such as route planners, reminders and a navigation map this app can prove useful to most public transport users, particularly in Dublin.


MapAlerter is an alert service for people living in Ireland who want to be kept up to date with local events. The app allows you to submit locations where you would like to be alerted i.e. your home address. This service is used by a number of Irish Councils and provides information and alerts on water services, floods, road closures, severe weather warnings and community news.


Looking for the cheapest price on fuel? The Pumps.ie app is a quick and easy way to receive the best prices for petrol and diesel throughout the country. What’s more, you can also update your local fuel prices within the app to help other users get the best bargain.

We hope that these apps prove useful and give you the information you need. However, if your phone was stolen, lost or broke and you weren’t covered, these apps would be useless. That is why we recommend that you take out gadget insurance, which starts from as low as €5.99 a month. Get a quick quote with us today and see how much you can save.
