CONGRATULATIONS, you've found it -- the best NYC subway app! Exit Strategy NYC features the official MTA subway, bus, and street maps. PLUS comprehensive 'exit strategies' for each subway station that LITERALLY shave minutes off every trip. It's an unbeatable combination...and all cheaper than a roundtrip subway ride!
Exit Strategy NYC has been praised by NY Times, NY Post, NY Mag, Gizmodo, Wired and more. Try it and you'll quickly see why it's a MUST-HAVE for New Yorkers & savvy New York visitors.
No more unfolding those huge awkward paper maps and looking like a tourist (even if you are one!) And no more trying to read that map on the train that always has someone's head blocking it! Put the subway map in your pocket!
Know those amazing MTA neighborhood maps in each subway station? We've got 'em! We wove them together into a giant quilt-like STREET MAP! Just tap a station to see a detailed map of the surrounding area (works for all stops in Manhattan and selected outer borough neighborhoods). The map even has ADDRESS RANGES to help you figure out cross streets!
We've also included BUS MAPS for ALL FIVE boroughs to help you when the subway can't. No other app has these!
Additionally, our street maps show exactly where the ENTRANCES of each station are located at street level, getting you into and out of stations faster. Trying to figure out where an alternate entrance to the West 4th Street station is? Just check the map! We like to call it 'Enter Strategy'.
Lastly, the core feature that made Exit Strategy famous:
Ever gotten off the train and realized the staircase was at the FAR other end of the platform? As you make that looooong walk of shame, you're thinking 'If only I had known..I could have saved myself minutes!' Well, Exit Strategy NYC is that guide! You'll exactly where to stand on the train (ie '3rd car, 2nd door). Imagine pulling into each subway station DIRECTLY in front of the exit. Imagine being the FIRST person out every time! We even show you which side of the train the doors open on!
Detailed diagrams eliminate the guesswork and frustration from your ride, making your subway trip easier and faster. Version 2.0 covers ALL stations in NYC, so you can shave minutes off EVERY trip you take!
NO PHONE SERVICE or INTERNET CONNECTION required, so you can use it on the subway! This app will quickly take a spot on your phone's home screen (and a spot in your heart). You'll wonder how you ever lived without it!

What's New in Version 2.5
Just in time for the holidays, an updated Exit Strategy!
-Retina subway map and station diagrams (Whooop!)
-Support for the iPhone 5's taller screen (Yeeeeehaw!)
-Fixed the double-tap to zoom bug (Yippeeeee!)
-Barclays Center, Bleecker St and lots of other station diagrams updated (Amaaaazing!)
-Updated all maps to the latest ones available from the MTA (Huzzahhhh!)
More updates coming soon!
Very handy, everything works as described. One request is for the ability to zoom out more for the neighborhood maps. Since the normal system map is distorted (by mta not just this app to make things looks nice and spread out) it would make this feature a little more useful for seeing when a train change is or isn't actually beneficial. Example in Manhattan is the ACE/123.. Only one long block difference.
My must have app
I have used this app on 4 iPhones so far. I am always worried that an iOS update will take it away from me. I am overjoyed to have it updated and growing! I never get on a subway without checking this app. Rush hour is nearly bearable because I know before I squeeze in what car I want to be in. The best!
Best app on my phone
I'm an iPhone developer so people ask me what apps to buy. I only say this one. Simple. Brilliant. Winner from day one. Great job!
The new version is gorgeous. The highlighted states on the lines icons aren't retina. You can scroll the nav bar when viewing a train illustration (scroll up or down.)
