Essential apps you must have in Brazil

Transport apps

Cade ô ônibus

  • This app is only for Sao Paolo, it finds you the nearest bus and tells you when you need to be at the bus stop.

Uber and 99 taxi

  • These two are taxi-hailing apps, uber is not available in many Brazilian cities though, it's a good idea to have both apps

Accommodation and restaurant locating apps

  • You can also find city guides for various Brazilian cities using Kekanto.
  • Kekanto is widely used in Brazilian cities and also in Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile, Bogota, Mexico City, and Lima.

Language apps

Portuguese pod 101 and Brazil pod

  • Both of these podcast apps have podcast shows that teach Brazilian Portuguese.

Google translate
