the top 5 apps - as picked by the tech-savvy zipcar team

If you’ve ever spoken to our Member Services team, then you’ll know we’re all pretty hip and happening at Zipcar; we know what’s hot and what’s not. That’s why we’ve asked our tech-savvy IT team what mobile apps they just can’t live without right now (besides the Zipcar app of course!). Here's their Top 5:

5) Rayman Jungle Run

The classic invisibly-limbed hero is back, this time on your mobile phone. Lead Rayman through new worlds of beautiful graphics with catchy tunes (remember to turn the sound off on the train!). It's fun, addictive and easy to learn if you've never played Rayman before.

Available for iPhone or Android.

3) Mailbox

The perfect app for those who love a clean and empty inbox. Designed to work with your GMail account (with more platforms coming soon), you can scan email conversations in seconds, snooze emails until later, swipe messages to your archive, and more. And judging by the squeals around the office when the inbox hits zero, it must be a pretty good app.

Available for iPhone.

1) Spotify

It's hardly surprising that this genius app is our number one. With millions of songs at our fingertips, we're never short of tunes to rock out to in a Zipcar. Stream music free online or upgrade to a premium account to listen offline and share playlists with your friends.

Available for iPhone, Android or Windows Phone.

4) Trainline

It's the ever useful app to go alongside those all-singing all-dancing TV adverts. Plan your UK-wide rail journeys in seconds, get live departure updates, see nearby stations on a map, and even buy discounted rail tickets.

Available for iPhone, Android or Windows phone.

2) City Mapper

The lifeline of all Londoners attempting to negotiate the hurly-burly of the London transport system. Plan journeys, get live bus and tube departures, and even find out how much your journey will set you back. Ideal for those (very few) journeys a Zipcar just can't do.

Available for iPhone or Android.

Plus if you don't have the Zipcar app (surely the best of them all?) then don't forget to download it. Find, book, lock up, and even honk with the app.
