Wouldn't it be great to be able to hover above the city and see where the trains are, and to move forward and back in time? Knowing where the trains are would mean less waiting in stations for trains that aren't scheduled to arrive anytime soon.

Essentially Transit Sharpener NYC is an animated map, overlaying trains on top of the NYC subway lines where they would be according to the MTA schedules.

The free version of Transit Sharpener NYC is ad-supported and renders an add banner at the bottom of the map window at all times. The non-free version has no advertisements and requires no network access to function.

The MTA publishes time tables for each train line, but these documents can be complex and hard to read. Transit Sharpener NYC is a visualization of these MTA time tables that shows a map of where the trains are on the line according to the schedule.

Transit Sharpener NYC includes weekday, Saturday, and Sunday schedules for the A, B, C, D, E, F, G, J, L, M, N, Q, R, S, Z, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 lines. No further downloads or other network access is required or used, except to load advertisements on the free version. This saves power and means it runs anywhere, on almost all Android devices.

With a quick glance at the map, it's easy to make good choices about what stations are the best bet to get on a train. Need to plan ahead? Simply move the map forward in time. Spend less time waiting for trains with Transit Sharpener NYC.

    I tried this app out literally because I was running late and I was able to make up for the list time. Also, does this app update the timetables because sometimes its off by a few minutes or so? Other than tht, great app!!!!

    I like this app but there are a couple of subway lines missing, it'd also be better if the map adjusts to route changes. Other than that I think its amazing. Some trains seem to not stop at the station they are supposed to be in. maybe that can be fixed
