Last year I covered already a few apps that help to make your life a bit easier in Jordan. Since then, a few of them got updated and also new ones popped-up and I gave some of them a try. So over the next weeks or so, I intend to cover some more reviews and let you know what they can, and what not. With this post I intend to make a list of the ones that are worth listing. The selection is not meant to be exhaustive and is based on my personal experience, a look at the reviews and if I think they are necessary or not from a point of view from an expat. While I think that some of them are really useful, not all of them are a must-have and most of them are not perfect, but it seems they are working hard on improving their services as a lot of times I got contacted by their customer service and was asked for my experience or if I need help. The following list of Apps or Websites is in alphabetical order and I will try to cover all of them with a review, if I haven’t so far. If you have any additions to the list, are an app developer or have some feedback, please get in contact.
