"Know London, like the back of your hand"

Reviewed by / Jun 05, 2012

Tube Map is one of the most complete apps to go around London

London is one of the biggest cities in the World, so it deserves an app to plan your moves around. Tube Map offers an updated underground map with lots of extra features. Let's zoom on them.

First off, you have a preview of the Tube Map, you can zoom in/out by pinching and drag in any direction to move it to the desire place. What's more, you can tap on an specific stop to check out service status now, later or even weekend. Actually, you can also see "Line status" by clicking on Menu Button. The info is constantly updated, so you can see if there's any issue (accident, partly suspended lines, etc.).

You can plan your routes in order to find the faster and best way to reach destination. You can search station by name, check new departures out and or even share on Twitter where you are or where you're going. One of the features we like most is the integration with Oyster Account to check your Oyster Card balance. What's more, it allows you to find nearest station by GPS location.

In a few words: complete, easy-to-use and useful. A tool you cannot miss if you're a Londonian.

    Removed due to overly permissive security requirements.

    But app permisions have forced me to uninstall. Wht does it need to send emails on my behalf? Why does it need access to my mic? Plus...pudh adverts. A shame...used to be a top app. Uninstalled.

    Bizarre that it requires permission to read and write to my personal calendar and to send emails from me without my permissions. Also I am not a twitter fan, and just want a tube map. This insists on overlaying twitter updates, obscuring the map, as soon

    There is zero reason this app needs access to my microphone and calendar, especially not for ads. I refuse to update till you sort this out.

    Use of microphone, why could it possibly want this, it's a map! Have used this for a couple of years but will now delete.
