Metro is one of the lifelines of many countries in the world and when it came to India, in Delhi, the whole public transport scenario changed. Its been a while since Delhi Metro is serving the commuters and recently there have been several iPhone and Android apps to make your metro journey more convenient. Today we will be reviewing one great iPhone app dedicated to Delhi Metro.
Named as New Delhi Metro the app focuses on providing every possible information regarding Metro and its services. The main interface has From and To section where you can enter the station name, to start with.
Like me, obviously many of you wouldn’t be remembering any station name perfectly which is quite fine and in such case you can press the arrow button next to the From and To space to open a list of stations. Search the one you want or just scroll through your finger and tap on the station to select.
After you have done so, press the Route button on the top right corner as seen in the first image and the app will show the route in text format with the changeovers, if any, included. The app also shows the number of stops on the route with the total fare.
To see the route of your journey, press the MapView button and the complete route right from your origin to destination will be displayed on the map. You can also change the view of the map to standard, hybrid or satellite.
Coming back to the main screen we have four more sections at the bottom of the screen, as we have already talked about the Search function. The second tab, Map will display the complete Metro network in two dimension which is in resemblance with the one you see on metro stations.
If you are en route to your destination, press the Locate section and the app will locate you on the metro network.
Lastly the Metro Details section will cover all the possible questions you wish to put like the last train timings for each station, metro parking availability, feeder bus service, station facilities etc.
App Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.0 or later.
Conclusion: Amazing app, delivers complete information but when you wish to know more under the Metro Details section, it redirects to the official website which is not a convenient thing as I wish the app itself to have all the information
