Transit Train and Bus Schedule App Gets an iOS 7 Makeover

Posted by Stephen Hall on April 1st, 2014
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Transit is arguably one of the best apps for making your public transportation experience less hectic, and the app has support for most of the world's largest metropolitan areas. There's really no reason not to have this app if you ever need to ride a train or catch the bus. But recently, Transit received a huge update that not only brings its user interface design up to date, but adds a bulk of new features as well.

The update features an "all Routes mode," which lets users explore route and stops in their region, train and subway stations listed in auto-complete while searching, the ability to "search locations using stop codes," an improved offline mode, and more. Of course on top of all these goodies the newly updated app features a beautiful newly designed interface to flatten it up and make it more iOS 7-y.

You can get Transit on the App Store for free.

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: PLAY ON MUTE
I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was. To endure obnoxious sound effects and music is my real test, to figure out what exactly happens in a battle is my cause.

Dragon Island Blue Review

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: A SLOW BURN
Could it be? A monster collecting and training game that doesn't limit players' involvement with arbitrary timers and pseudo-required in-app-purchases? Why yes it is!

My Monster Rancher Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Rob Rich on July 13th, 2012
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: NOT QUITE THE SAME
It's most definitely not the equivalent of a console Monster Rancher on the go, but My Monster Rancher is pretty cool for what it is.

Train Crisis HD+ Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Rob Rich on March 30th, 2012
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: FIRST CLASS TICKET
Leading trains around a track is apparently quite the white-knuckle affair. Of course it still looks cool if they meet with an unfortunate accident.

Morphs Review

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Rob Rich on December 12th, 2011
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: POKEY-MON
Morphs does a decent job of filling the monster-raising gap, but its freemium roots hold it back from greatness.

Pudding Panic Review

By Jason Wadsworth on June 15th, 2011
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: JIGGLY GOOD FUN
This action puzzler takes players through dozens of haunted train rides with a scared little blob of green dessert. As bizarre as it sounds, the game is super fun to play.

Train Conductor 2: USA Hits App Store

The Voxel Agent's Train Conductor 2: USA has launched for all iDevices, big and small. The sequel to the hit, Train Conductor, steps out of the developers home country of Australia, and into some of the most famous train stops in the US, including the Grand Canyon, Nashville, Las Vegas and New York City.

"Far from a simulation, TC2 is all about quick strategic decisions and superior hand-eye coordination as players guide locomotives across the horizontal tracks while avoiding head-on collisions with other trains. Several types are available: steam trains, electric subway trains, monorails, ghost trains and even “skull trains.”"

Also included in the app is a survival mode, something that we found was lacking in the first edition, improved menu art, a simplified HUD (heads-up display), new music, new train models, a different look for stopped trains and varied environmental and weather effects.

If line drawing/traffic management games are your cup o' tea, you can pick up Train Conductor 2: USA in the App Store today for only $0.99.
