10 Essential Apps for Living in San Francisco

San Francisco is known as the Silicon Valley City, but when you’re there, you know it’s so much more. From hippies to hipsters, environmentalists to vegans, San Francisco (or “The City,” as the locals call it) is the most laid back, fast moving metropolis that there is; but it can pass you by if you don’t try to tame it.
