Very rarely does an app take hold of the Apppli office quite how CityMapper has done. It’s not an understatement to say that it has revolutionised our journeys around London. So what, in our humble opinion, makes it so special?

Well firstly, it’s a great example of beautiful, intuitive design with real-time functionality. And unlike other transport apps, it shows you every type of transport option, including Barclays bikes, taxis and good old fashioned walking. Not only does it show journey time and live departure boards, it also estimates fares and even calories burned.

I’m happy to report that since discovering it, I’ve deleted a whole load of old apps which only provide a subset of features that CityMapper boasts. And I find myself walking to destinations more.

Don’t believe us? Try it for yourselves. Available for free on Android: and iPhone now:
