4. Google Maps

Never be lost in Oman again with the Google Maps app. This useful app lets you find locations, plan travel routes, and see what are the available public transport options and timings to that location.

5. Dubizzle Oman

One man's junk is another man's treasure in Oman. If you have some items at home that you no longer need, you can list a classified advertisement on Dubizzle - someone else might be interested in keeping it!

On top of buying and selling secondhand cars, electronics, clothes, toys, furniture, etc., Dubizzle also lets users list houses or apartments for rent or sale. You can find your next home in Oman through this app.

The app can be installed on iOS or Android.

6. WhatsApp

If you're living in Oman as an expat resident, downloading WhatsApp is a must. It's one of the most commonly used messenger apps in Oman, so you'll need it to keep contact with friends, family, coworkers, etc.

7. Google Translate

Oman is home to over 5 million foreign expats living, working, and/or studying in the Sultanate, making the language barrier difficult for some residents and tourists. In addition, the official language of Oman is Arabic - and not everyone in the country can understand it.

We recommend downloading Google Translate to make communication easier. Although the translations aren't 100% perfect, it's good enough to get your point across. The app also offers a camera feature where it can translate a piece of text in real life when you take a photo of it.

Google Translate is available on the App Store and Google Play.

9. Mosaed

You can download the Mosaed app via the App Store or Google Play.
