Spidery lines all over your screen? What can it mean? That's a London tube map.
London Tube Review
by on December 7, 2010
If you have Londonophobia (fear of Londons) look away now. Actually, don’t read any of this, as it’s useless to you.
If you do live in / want to visit London, then we can recommend this application to you. It has all the basics you’ll need – maps, icons and station closures are all included.
You can also see maps of single lines (like they have ACTUALLY PRINTED IN THE TUBES THEMSELVES for that authentic London feeling) and also see live updates of planned closures.
Live departure boards are good if you’re running late, but not so much if you’re dawdling down the escalator, as you’ll need a signal to keep them accurate.
Another awesome feature is the Oyster card balance – simply log in with your account details and you’ll always know how much you’ve got left on your inflexible blue friend.
The map could do with a more zoomed out mode, as it makes it hard to see everything at once, and you can’t search for stations on the map itself (although you can get a wider search function to see specific stations).
We’d still like to see a more detailed journey planner on board, but that aside we’re impressed, especially for the price.
