iPhone Pick: The Transit App

Transit App

Rene Ritchie's pick of the week on MacBreak Weekly episode 395 is The Transit App, which was recently updated to version 3.0 for iOS 7. Canadian developer Samuel Vermette first introduced Transit to fill the void left when Apple introduced its own app without public transit data in iOS 6. It originally had a design that resembled the Windows Phone "tile" interface, and only supported a handful of cities.

Transit now works in 62 metropolitan areas, including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and France. While the design hasn't completely changed with version 3.0, it does have more of an iOS 7 look and feel. Transit is as functional as it is beautiful, too. It shows all nearby departures for various routes at a glance, and can track where your bus or train is in real-time. Transit also has a trip planner, and has step by step instructions. It even will find route itineraries without an internet connection. Transit is free, and is available for both iPhone and Android.
