Stay on top of the tube with London Travel Live for Windows 8


If you live in London (as opposed to elsewhere in the UK), I think London Travel is a much better app. It does all of this and in addition also bus statuses and in a much nicer interface.

It would make more sense for this to be on WP8. The majority of new windows 8/P8 people are walking around with windows phones. Its more portable than w8 devices.

I love this app, the live tile is perfect and has saved me so much time when the tubes are working properly.

I would prefer it if TfL would just make an offical app; but I have yet to see them make an app for any platform I don't understand why they havn't =/

Maybe the API is a better route to follow (if you parden the pun). That way you get unique interfaces and the best of the development minds creating something. With a company app, its all at the whim of the company as and when to update/fix.

unortunatelly its brilliant idea and crap app. The most amazing thing Live Tile doesn't work at all. So U can use it only as a shortcut to go and check your status, but it will not show u current oyster card status. Both windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 either :/ I have moved to other apps.
