It’ll only work effectively in certain cities, but if you’re in such a place then Citymapper is a near essential mapping app.
Working across New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Washington DC, Philadelphia, and more, Citymapper does all the hard work so you don’t have to. On the Apple Watch, it’s even more convenient thanks to being on your wrist.
At the tap of a button, Citymapper can easily calculate your route home or a particular place you have in mind. Whatever you choose, the Apple Watch app quickly calculates things before giving you an extensive route to wherever you want to go.
Step by step, it caters for walking, trains, the tube or subway, ferry, tram, and so forth. You can easily check out things like how many stops are involved on the train or how long you should expect a particular walk to take. It gives you some control in a potentially unfamiliar city.
For more general information, you can use it to see when the next trains or buses are set to leave, as well as consult maps. Service alerts for any possible disruption are also available.
Simply put, Citymapper is a great resource. Whether you know your city well or not, it’ll keep you feeling in the know and on top of exactly how long it’s going to take you to get from A to B. On the Apple Watch, it’s a particular help with easy to use controls and a clear interface to help you out.
