The Underground now fits in your back pocket
Tube Map Review
by on September 30, 2010
The London Underground system might seem like a sprawling mess of coloured lines, but ask any Londoner and they’ll claim to be able to tell you where any station is, which line it’s on and in which zone.
However, they’re invariably lying, so if that’s you, then this app could help you out in a tight spot, by offering a complete tube map in your pocket.
You can search by station, see which zone stops are in, and even plan a journey using this free app.
It doesn’t take into account bus routes, which may sometimes be quicker, but will help you navigate across London even if you’re underground with no signal.
Another cool feature lets you see whether a service has been disrupted, although you’ll need signal to keep that part updated.
Pair this with the (also free) TubeBuddy and you’ll be able to see departure boards too – yes, it’s annoying to have to use two apps, but they’re both free and work well.
So next time someone asks you a question about travel and you think they’re a tourist, try and covertly use this application and they’ll think you’ve got more knowledge than a cockney cabbie.
