Transit App has released a new 3.0 update, which is going live in the App Store soon. This updated version brings a brand new iOS 7 redesign and also new features such as improved autocomplete for train and subway suggestions, plus the ability to search using stop codes.
Below are the full release notes:
– Shiny new iOS 7 design, finally!
– All Routes mode, letting you explore any route and stop in your region.
– Train/subway stations in autocomplete suggestions.
– Ability to search locations using stop codes.
– Stop Lists: linear representation of all routes.
– Improved offline mode! Faster, more reliable and taking up 20x less space on your device.
– New “Minimize Walking” setting (enabled by default)
– Ability to save home and work shortcuts for easy access.
As for back end updates, co-founder and CEO Sam Vermette tells us the app recently added “support for US cities like Phoenix, Tampa, Cincinnati. Also started expanding to Columbia, and recently added real-time data for all MTA bus routes in NYC. No recent love for Canada unfortunately.”
To date, there have been 1.2 million iOS downloads of the Transit App says Vermette.
The app is incredibly easy to use and the new design looks fantastic. All you have to do is move the map to any location to use it as your start/end point for getting transit routes, which can be calculated in seconds. Take a look at the screenshots below:
Transit App’s previous 2.0 update launched last May, when the app became free after the Montreal company joined FounderFuel, a local startup accelerator.
