Like most of us out here, I have to admit that my phone and I are inseparable. It's a sad but very true reality. I love discovering ways that I can make my phone more useful than it already is by discovering new and useful apps that can help me in my daily life. As someone who is always hopping from one city (and sometimes country) to the next, my transport apps are super important to me. So, I was extremely happy when my friend showed me an app that can attend to almost all of my transport needs. Especially as I had to get my somewhat clueless self from from Fulham to Mill Hill East in Barnet and back again (they are on completely opposite ends of London).
CityMapper is an app that combines all public transport information for your chosen city in one app.
It has options for different cities all over the world, so you can plan your trips in cities like London, Barcelona, Amsterdam and even Tokyo.
You simply input your starting point and destination or point of interest and click go. Then CityMapper searches for the best travel option for you. It's a really handy app as, it essentially plans your whole trip out for you. It's realtime journey times (including cycling and walking times) and departure times let you know how long it'll actually take you - even taking into account traffic, walking and waiting. The best part of it all is that it can even gives you estimated journey costs of not only your tube or bus journey, but your Taxi ride too - which is perfect, if you are travelling on a tight budget.
-Note the estimated cost app doesn't work in all cities e.g Barcelona
