Citymapper is a city-wide route-planning app which provides a comprehensive list of options for your route, taking you from A to B using your mobile connection to navigate through to your destination.
The app homepage displays a small map of your location including an inset tube map. From your current location you can view travel options within 5 minutes walk. If you select to walk or cycle, Citymapper will tell you how many calories you will burn and the equivalent in food. e.g. half a chocolate bar or one bacon butty.
For travelers navigating a route through London, the app includes routing via the London Underground other options including, buses, cycling (if using a ‘Boris Bike’ it provides docking stations and the amount of bikes and spaces free to save you hassle), walking, rail, ferry, train and cab options, which include uber and waiting time and approximate costs.
Using the ‘Get Me Home’ or ‘Get me to Work’ options you can set locations for a rapid search of your fastest route to home or work. By using the ‘Get Me Somewhere’ option you can insert a new address for the intended location; ideal if you are planning ahead.
Citymapper will add a fun twist to what is usually a dull commute. You will be presented with options for traveling using a jetpack, teleport or catapult, if you fancy trying a new way of getting to work. It also tries to predict the future by informing you how long your journey would take once the new cross-rail gets implemented.
What's New in Version 7.5
Improved routing results across all cities. We're now taking into account actual human behaviour in our algorithms. Hear that robots?
Improved travel times for various modes of transport, so you can make better comparisons. Unfortunately that means fewer excuses for being late, but don't worry, we won't tell.
Comprehensive routeplanning application, which will enable you to succesfully get from A to B with minimum fuss.
