Following on from the popular Windows Phone app, a newly designed iOS version of Bing Get Me There has launched.
Bing Get Me There is a London travel app that gets people from A to B with true door-to-door directions using Bing maps and live tube updates as well as Bus, Docklands Light Rail (DLR) and Overground data, to ensure that people get the best route.
Navigating around London, whether as a commuter or a tourist is always a challenge. Get Me There can help throughout the whole journey by locating the nearest stations and bus stops to walk to and best travel routes to use avoiding any delays or un-expected changes.
Specific Get Me There iPhone features
New to the iPhone, Bing Get Me There features flip functionality which means that if users turn their iPhone upside down, they get instant reverse directions from their previous journey. In addition, the app changes colour to reflect the tube line users are looking at. Plus, Get Me There also allows people to use Bing web search from directly within the app – handy if they want to find out more information about that trendy bar they’re going to after work.
The Get Me There app for iPhone can be downloaded for free from iTunes here.
