NYC Bikes — A One-Tap Citi Bike App
By Urban Apps
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
NYC Bikes is a simple and easy-to-use App that helps you locate the closest Citi Bike℠ docking station. With one tap you can find the closest Citi Bike station, how far away it is and in which direction, and how many available bikes and docks it currently has.
Find out how many available docks there are at your destination easily with the full-map mode. You can even set a ride timer to help track your Citi Bike rental and prevent late fees.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

I like this app for the user friendly interface. Boots up and works fast. The feature which allows you to swipe and see nearby stations is nice. Would be really great if it didn't only work for your current location. By this I mean it would be really useful to be able to look up a station near your destination and see alternative options if there were no free docks at that desired station. Other handy features would be a search function allowing you to type in the street intersection instead of having to scroll all over the map. And a favourite list would be excellent to have too.
It used to be a great app. And I was using it since it was waaaaay better than the first versions of the citibike app. But now the app wouldn't open until I don't switch in the settings to Alway (use my location) instead of "When used". Using my location permanently just to ise this app and drain my battery quickly just doesn't make sense to me so if this thing won't be fixed soon I will reconsider using this app...
However, as I said, it used to be a good one.
I use this app all the time!
A friend recommended this app to me in lieu of using the official Citibike app. One pain point - when biking to less familiar areas, I have to map out my route in Google maps and then try to find the nearest dock to my destination in this app - I wish there was a way to do this all in this app.
