HUGE defect, problem

The app creates fairly good routes; however it fails to give you two major pieces of information: the direction you need to go on the line; and directions for lines with multiple branches.

By direction, I mean either the cardinal direction (N, S, E, W), or the terminal point of the train. For instance, do you want the northbound line, or the southbound line? Or, do I want to take the Victoria Line toward Brixton or Walthamstow Central?

What's even *worse*, is that it gives you NO info about lines with multiple branches and/or intra-line transfers! If I'm at Earl's Court and I want to take the District Line, there are SIX different terminal points from that station, and some of them require you to get off the train and take another train at certain stations. At that point, you're just going to have to look at the map anyway.

So, not only is this app useless -- if you already knew all this stuff, you wouldn't need it -- but it can actually get you lost! If you can't figure out the map, you're better off just asking someone in the station -- this app ain't gonna help!

4/5 stars

Please add tube Signs

I used your app last time I was in London. I'm from the US. It's almost perfect.

The leave from going to and it tells me my route is invaluable. I also used the maps inside the cars while I listened to the voice announce where to get off. This helped me become familiar with the line.

Only thing missing are the Southbound Northbound stop signs. Those helped me tremendously know which direction I was supposed to take next. Can you please add this feature?

You'd be a 5 and no other add would be as awesome as you!!!

5/5 stars


Does just what its supposed to. Easy interface.
