â™¦ OVERVIEW - The â€śTyne & Wear Metroâ€ť application is a superb professionally drawn map and route planner for the Tyne & Wear metro system with many unique features. The inbuilt map provides a simple and colourful view of the city metro services with the ability to flip to the online map view when an internet connection is available. This way the user can view the online map when an internet connection is available and the transport map and route planning is still fully functional when not connected. This provides the best of both worlds, the metro map and route planning anytime, anywhere and online maps and search when a connection is available. You can also use your inbuilt GPS to see the nearest transportation stop and distance to it. â€¨â€¨
â™¦ ROUTING - Does not require an internet connection and will always be available to display a clear and detailed view of the city transport system, plus list and animate the optimum route for your journey. Provides the fastest route calculations of any mobile routing application (virtually instantaneous) using actual published journey times with the ability to select the quickest route or the route with the least changes.â€¨Comprehensive details of your planned route are provided, including changes, directions of travel, number of stops, predicted journey times, etc. Uniquely this application gives you â€śdirectionâ€ť, â€śtowardsâ€ť and â€śservice frequencyâ€ť information (not available on any other offline journey planner) for example â€śTake the Green line (Southbound) towards Yarrow for 10 mins (6 stops). Service runs every 7 minutesâ€ť which is essential when finding the correct platform and connection.Â
â™¦ NO INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIREDÂ - The map and routing do not require an internet connection and you will not be charged data connection fees. This also means the application runs perfectly underground, on an aeroplane, etc and on an iPod Touch. For international visitors to a city who have data roaming turned off this is an ideal solution.
â™¦ MINUTE MAP - This is a unique feature you won't find in any other product, simply select a location and the "Minute Map" view will show you the travelling time from that location to all other locations on the map. This feature will also show you the approximate walking time and distance allowing you to make an informed decision on whether to walk or take public transport.â€¨â€¨
