NYC Subway Map

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Visiting the Big Apple? Long time New Yorker on an errand to an unfamiliar part of town?
This simple, handy, and FREE app lets you scroll around a detailed map of the New York City subway system, including all five boroughs. That's it. The map is saved on your device, so you do not need an Internet connection to view it.
It's not nearly as fancy as some of the paid subway map apps out there, but it's free, fast-loading and very convenient when you are stuck underground with no reception on an unfamiliar line and can't or don't want to make your way over to the map seat to check which stop your connection is at.
Enjoy, and please don't complain that it doesn't make toast - it's just a map.

Clear, readable map!
This app provides a clear and readable map of the NY subway system. I love it's simplicity. I wish the map would zoom in and out though. One negative - the forefront (land) moves separate from the background (water) and gives me motion sickness. Map will still be useful.
As developer says, this is a simple map of the NYC subway system. It does what it sets out to do. No need for data and it is free.
If you are good at reading maps, this app is for you. I used it constantly on my trip to NYC in conjunction with Google Maps. Google Maps (uses cellular data) is good at suggesting a route and this app is good at giving an overview of all the lines and different options and transfers.
Sure, the app could be updated to allow zooming and a pop up legend.
