My best friends girlfriend let me know about this interesting new BlackBerry application for NYC subway travelers. It essentially tells you where to get on and off the train to best reach your location. Since I take the subway every day I will definitely be checking this out but at $2.99 and at 4.71 megabytes I don’t know how many others will be joining me. The idea of the large download is that all of the information is stored locally on your device since there still is no cellphone reception in the NYC subway.
- No internet connection required; use it on the subway!
- Diagrams for every subway station in Manhattan and large parts of Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx
- Includes locations of exits, transfers and elevators
- Provides hours for exits that close
- Easy-to-use interface
- Exact door data for advanced users (available for most lines)
The app is available for the Curve & Bold but I am not sure about the 8900 Curve. Sadly it is only available in the App World so I cannot link to it either…
So what do you think? I personally have never heard of a BlackBerry app that is almost 5 megabytes. I just wish the MTA would use all the extra money they are getting from this new fare hike to give us mobile access in the subways and mobile friendly maps. (I doubt it)
