Transit app for iPhone greatly improves its interface

The competition for best transit app is relentless. A few weeks ago, we told you about an update to RocketMan, which overhauled its interface for iOS 7 and added a number of great new features. Today, Montreal-based Transit App has done the same, releasing version 3.0 of its popular route-picking iPhone app. Along with a brand new interface that makes it much easier to get around, signage within Transit App is much easier to decipher. 

The appropriately named Transit app for iPhone has already gotten a lot of love in the App Store, including Editor’s Choice, and it is getting featured again because of a major update that’s out today. Transit is designed to provide you with realtime data on public bus and train systems in 62 metropolitan areas around the world.  Today’s update includes a more streamlined way of figuring out the right route to take, the ability to search locations using stop codes, a drastically improved offline mode, and more.  If you deal with public transportation on a daily basis, this app looks fantastic.
