RATP for public transport but might as well just use Google Maps.
The Fork for restaurants.
Chauffeur Privé- local car service.

All you need is Citymapper. It has everything. I used to use the RATP app but uninstalled it after using Citymapper.

Chauffeur Privé has change its name to Kapten.
Taxify has changed its name to Bolt.
IDCab is changing to Mon Chauffeur

I agree, I found Citymapper very helpful. I tend to get around mostly on the buses (with an occasional Uber) and that was all I needed for transportation, as well as LaFourchette for restaurant reservations.

I’ve used the Transit app with great success:

https://transitapp.com/

It brings up the next bus and subway arrivals automatically wherever you are. Even at bus stops where the RATP app says no info available, the transit app has the info-I don’t know how they do that.

It also works in almost every other place I have traveled-I just open it up and it knows what city I am in and gets the info. All you need is a cell (or WiFi) signal.

Free too.
