Moovit has just launched on Windows Phone, providing the community with a quick way to choose public transportation routes through supported locations. With the app installed, it's possible to check out real time arrivals, receive service alerts and more. An interesting part of Moovit as a service is how it's powered by users (who provided updated information) and is cross-platform. If you're searching for an app that does all this in more than 300 cities in 20+ languages, Moovit is well worth checking out.
The app itself is well designed and works great, as one would expect using the same app on other mobile platforms. Users are able to plan trips by comparing between alternative routes to any supplied destination and receive service alerts/advisories when situations affect planned journey. Static maps are available for subway/tram users, including New York, San Francisco, Boston and many more. What makes Moovit interesting is how it's entirely powered by you, the user. Real-time data is supplied by both operators and the Moovit community.
If you're heading to any of the football matches for this year's world cup, Moovit supports all 12 host cities, allows for easy navigation to and from stadiums and fan fests and is able to provide service alerts on transport conditions. A perfect companion app to really make the games a special experience. Check it out on the store today.
Thanks, Meir and Nir, for the tips!
