    "Moving around Barcelona"

    TMB Virtual is the official app of Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB), the company that manages the public transport in the city and we must say that we are really impressed with the job developed here.

    Through your mobile, you will be able to plan any route by public transport (metro, tram or bus) and know the waiting times in between trains or buses. Also, if you are always complaining about not knowing where the bus and tram stops or metro stations are, don't worry because you get detailed location with the exact distance you have to walk to get to them.

    As usual in these kind of apps, TMB Virtual provides real-time and on-location maps via GPS and if you hold your device horizontally the arrows will lead you to the selected spot. You can also download the full metro map in PDF format and get update and last-minute info on bus network incidences. The interface is quite usable and the design, clean and simple, even in when you active the Augmented Reality option which is of them gems hidden in the app.

    Tmb Virtual is one of the finest examples of what a public transport app of a great city should be and we accolade TMB for the effort. Targeted to clueless residents and tourists, the app is avaliable in Spanish, English and Catalan (the other language spoken the area).

    I bought two tickets from this app. But I cannot print it and no purchasing information is stored in the app. No email was sent to my phone. I had to buy two new tickets from the Metro office. Even the customer service refused to reply my phone. I cannot get back my money!!

    One of the worst public transport apps I have seen so far. - To use it one needs to register on an unknown website - why ?! Please, please developers study the Android API to use a local or cloud-synced storage for data and don grab the users email for a useless account. - It is nearly impossible to plan a journey with a target address as the "adress replacement" functionality simply does not work - one will end up in a endless loop in the app. - Metro sems not to be included - why not? I don't understand why this app is so bad, their website is much better and especially provides all options for a good journey planning.
