If you’re thinking of planning a vacation in London, England or even if you’re a Londoner and want a reliable source of information on the London Underground, then you’ll definitely want to keep Real London Tube handy on your iPhone and iPad.
This is a must-have app for anyone who is daring to face the mayhem and confusion of the London Underground, and having the live service status updates to hand will definitely prove invaluable if you’re going to travel at the weekend when there are almost always some lines closed for maintenance.
You’ll also be able to use the integrated Journey Planner to navigate the Underground system with less guesswork, and as we discussed above I think you’ll find the live status updates to be very, very useful because line closures are pretty much a constant thing on the tube.
London Underground demystified
One standout feature of Real London Tube is that the Journey Planner also includes buses and London Overground train services, so if there are any line or station closures then you’ll be able to compensate for this by catching connections and bus replacements.
What’s more, this app utilizes your device’s integrated GPS to quickly find your nearest tube station, and you can also stick a pin in the online map to see the nearest station to any point in the city.
