Lance Stewart is the smart chap behind the launch of new iPhone travel app, TubeExits.
TubeExits is for the serious tube rider. It tells you specifically what carriage to board to make sure you arrive directly opposite the relevant exit on your journey.
I know Liverpool Street — Tottenham Court Road. I know those exits. I know where to board and exit. But any other tube station in London? No.
I would definitely use this app. I’m going to download it in a moment.
Lance actually visited every single one of the 268 London Underground tube stops, several times a day, to check his data was accurate. Committed, eh?
It’s not just useful, this. It’s business critical! It can, reckons Lance, save you up to 10 minutes per journey during peak times. I get that.
He’s thought of everything. The app contains a journey planner — that doesn’t require access to the internet — it’s all self contained. Good news as you don’t have web access whilst traveling.
Right now it’s only covering London but Lance has plans to extend the concept to other cities.
Here is the full list of features:
– Can be accessed anywhere, including anywhere in the underground station, on the platform and in the train.
– Covers every station on the London Underground. (Zones 1-9)
– Platform exit information provided for Ã¢â‚¬ËœWay Out’, line interchange, British Rail and DLR.
– Journey information provided for single or multiple transfer journeys.
– Users can save their favourite journeys for quick access.
– Get the reverse journey with a single tap.
– Journeys can be edited to add/remove stations or to change the required platform exit.
– Output includes train clear visual illustrating which Tube carriage the user should board.
– Users can download the Tube Map from the TFL website in order to view when offline.
The app is 1.79 pounds (2.99 normal price) at the moment. Go and get it on the iPhone App Store.
