App of the Week: Citymapper

What is it?

The ultimate transport app. If you have a meeting to attend or an interview that you can’t miss, Citymapper is the perfect companion to ensure you know where you're going. All you have to do is type in your destination and they do the hard part. 

They deliver you the results and you decide on the best route. But wait, it gets even better! They calculate how many calories you’ll burn if you decide to walk or cycle and they also add on quirky options like the weather and cost of travel. 

You can save your routes so it’s simple to have a look once your journey starts. To get started all you have to do is create a profile and start planning your journey. It’s as simple as that.

Who is it for?

If you’re always on the move in or around London than Citymapper is right up your street! It makes the commute less manic and stressful so you can focus on more important matters than worrying about your journey. 

A to B journey planning and real-time info on all forms of transport makes this app stand head and shoulders above its competitors. Citymapper likes to keep its user happy too so if you have any issues then let them know through the app - you can even suggest other places you’d like help with. 

How will it improve my day-to-day? 

How wouldn’t it? We’ve all been to a place where you don’t have a clue where you’re going or what transport system you should use. Citymapper don’t beat around the bush - you enter the journey and they’ll deliver you the results in a matter of seconds. 

Whether you’re going for an interview or starting a new job, they’ll make your day-to-day commute or rare trip to London more enjoyable. They use open data from Transport for London to keep users updated - making it handy even to check the latest tube or train service.

Do I have to pay? 

Wait, it’s about to get even better! It’s free as both an iPhone and Android app. Look at it this way, you don’t pay to ask someone for directions, so why should you pay for similar duties as an app? Plan your journey with Citymapper and finally the commute can be less stressful. 

Where can I use it?

Available as an iOS app and compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (requires iOS 6.0 or later)

Available as an Android app and compatible with Android devices (requires version 2.3 and up)

Currently no version for Windows Phone - sorry guys!
