Customer Reviews

Great for independant travel

I just spent 2+ weeks in London using only the Underground to get around. I completely relied on this app and it was exactly what I wanted and needed

First of all you don't need to be connected to use it,it's on your phone independently which is outstanding for foreigners on data sucking plans.

The "route" feature will tell you the best way between 2 stations which is great, but also the details stops of each line + the entire underground map is always there for times when you find lines closed on weekends and-or weekday service interruptions. Keep your eyes perked for the constant announcements when in the terminals and you can use this app quickly to find another way.

Great app

We just returned from London where we used this app every day. It shows all lines and stations and provide an entire route if you enter your departure and arrival stations. A must have if you are going to use the Tube in London. As an added tip do not purchase individual Tube tickets. Buy an Oyster card where the per trip fare is half as much. Also, when you leave London, take the card to a Tube station and you will be refunded the deposit and any unused funds still on the card!

Marginally helpful

I wanted a tube navigation app in which I could name a destination (e.g. hotel address, Big Ben) and be told “go to Station X and take this train.”

This app assumes: 1) You know that Big Ben is at Station X. 2) You know that you need to take the Circle Line to get to your destination. 3) You are interested in a list of nearby tube stations that AREN’T on the line you need.

Once you have all the info you need (I’m at Kensingtion High Street station and I need to get to the Metropolitan stop) then it’s OK. The “Line” button just dumps you into a list of stations on that line that are unrelated to your present location.

I would only use this app if not better alternative were available.
