The Transit App for iPhone review

By bus, subway/metro, or train, get where you're going faster by being smarter with the Transit App for iPhone

The Transit App was lovingly, painstakingly designed and coded by Sam Vermette (of Shows) and Guillaume Campagna to make taking a bus, catching a train, or hoping on the underground as easy checking the weather or reading a social status. And they've succeeded brilliantly.

Launch The Transit App and it automatically detects your location, zones in on the public transport routes in your area, and shows you the next available times. Color coded. With icons. To match the transit system in your area.

Regarding iOS 6 Maps and Apple handing off transit directions to apps

More iPhone 2.2 Google Goodness: Transit, Walking, Street-View, and Share Location!

Dieter's been saying for a long time that Google hearts the iPhone -- and why wouldn't it, it delivers an incredible amount of mobile eyeballs for advertising. We've also said that the ultimate edge the iPhone enjoys over Android is that while Google produces great service for both Android and the iPhone, Apple only produces for the iPhone. The iPhone gets the best of both worlds. Latest case in point, iPhoneYap (via Apple Insider) has posted extensive screenshots of the new Google Maps 2.2, and it looks like we're getting:

  • Public transit directions (including schedule info)
  • Walking directions
  • Street view
  • Location Sharing

Since Google pimped out Street View for Android already, it's no big surprise that the iPhone (and other mobile platforms) are getting it as well. Same thing happened with cell tower location services last year. Still, we're hoping Apple's usual UI expertise will make this a particularly good implementation. No word yet, however, if we'll be getting Android-style real-time rotation...
