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.

    Agree with all the other reviews. This was a fantastic app, but no longer. Before you get chance to obtain the information you need (just before you jump on the tube) you get pushed away by adverts...am un installing it and looking elsewhere it is worthless.

    Too many permissions required. Other tube apps only require location. Uninstalling.

    I thought I've seen it all, but this is too much! An add covering the whole screen! Maybe there are a few seconds before that add takes control over the screen, but just the principle of it, how low can you get for money!!!
