    "The best way from A to B"

    Ever been frustrated by the clumsiness of figuring out how to get across a complicated city using Google Maps? Citymapper is the sleek, efficient solution. It's now available in New York City, Boston, Paris, Berlin, Madrid, Barcelona, Washington DC, and London. Your current location is auto-detected, and you tell it where to pinpoint as "home," "work," plus any favorite places you know you'll keep coming back to. Choose your preferred method of transport - walking, subway/metro, cab, bike, bus, tram, ferry, whatever - and be presented with suggested routes, including info regarding disruptions in a transport line, how many potential calories you'll burn, and any anticipated inclement weather conditions. The design is just gorgeous and eminently usable. Try it once and you'll never be able to go back to another maps app ever again.

    Too reliant on a constant internet connection, unusable without, i.e. on the underground. Why not allow departure times to be shown, even if they are not live? Cannot choose a departure after it's left, or a departure time in the past, so impossible to calculate onward journeys. Sometimes ignores routes involving buses, even if they are quicker

    Give wrong direction and most of the time give a longer route. Wrote in feedback a few times but no reply or follow up.

    Used this App in New York and it worked so well we took Subways everywhere. We even used it to take a 3.7 Mile bike ride from lower Manhattan through Midtown, Time square to 5th Avenue. It helped make our trip amazing. Less users and cabs meant we could spend more $ on other fun things. Loved this app. Now bring it to Houston ,TX I can help with the bus system here!
