Free HopStop Personal Navigation App for BlackBerry offers Directions in Many Cities

hopstop2 hopstop1

In case you are not familiar with HopStop they offer a very useful directions and navigation service. You can use their service to get public transit, walking, taxi, and biking directions in dozens of cities throughout the US, Canada and Europe. I use their website all the time in NYC and its great to see them bring those features to BlackBerry.

Features of the app include:

  • Get point-to-point directions from your current location with detailed maps
  • Set your travel preferences – bus, subway, walking, taxi, include/exclude regional rail or vehicles operated by private companies
  • Access addresses from your contact list
  • Map a location and see nearby subway and bus stops
  • Estimate travel time and cost for a taxi and call taxi companies with a tap
  • Save recent searches and favorite trips in MyTrips
  • Get biking directions in NYC, Washington DC, Chicago, and San Francisco
  • Find out how many calories you burn on each route and how many carbon emissions you save compared to driving
  • See wheelchair accessible and stroller friendly routes

You can pick up the free HopStop app for OS 5.0+ devices in App World. Let us know what you think of it!

  1. Going to give this a whirl since it lists Toronto and Toronto’s public transit service – the TTC – in its App World description.
    Wonder why it is preferable over GoogleMaps but time will tell, I guess.
