Review: Tube Map

How do you find your way around the London Underground? With a printed map or this little Java app from mxData? Ewan considers the latter and, despite a low score, decides it's definitely worth installing. Here's his review of the freeware Tube Map.

Read on in the full article.

Exiting the Tube Map

Hi Ewan. I've found that the best way to exit this app is to kill it using the red key as you don't have to watch the closing adverts then. This makes it a bit more usable. Cheers.

Found this to be a great app. No issues on my N97 so far. Despite the ads, I think it's one of the most worthwhile apps to come out of the Ovi store and would like to see some more of this quality of both interface and usefulness.

For the N97 I must admit I've just used the downloadable PDF form the TFL website.
S60 3rd Edition wise, again - TFL's own app works just great for me

I am still using the old outdated tfl java app. Works brilliantly on s60v3.2 despite the outdated map set (not that big a deal TBH).

Thumbs up

I loved the old TfL java app an my S40 phone, everything an app should be lightweight and simple.

Anyone point me towards a download source as I lost track of it after TfL stopped promoting it.

Phone Handset Tube App

Nice application, but does not seem to allow text entry in Portrait using the touch screen.

Having to open the keyboard is a pain

Thumbs up Reliable

I find this app very reliable on both my N96 and BB Bold. I understand the comments about the ads but not sure I would pay for a Tube Map so I guess its the only way to get it produced. I am pretty used to the ads now and they only last seconds.
SImple, intuitive, reliable and easy to use. It doesn't take your breath away but then its an underground map!

Just downloaded it

When I read the review initially, I smiled and thought "won't ever need it". Now I've got a job interview in Londinium on Monday so guess what, I've just downloaded it.

A similar app was one of my faves when I lived nearer London than I do currently. This comes close, but like one other poster, I have had to open the keyboard on my N97 to enter text into entry boxes.

Oh by the way. Want a download source? Its available from the Ovi Store which is where I was directed when attempting to download it.

Regards
Neil
