I’m : a programmer, writer, podcaster, geek, and coffee enthusiast.

The Exit Strategy NYC subway app just got a massive upgrade, turning it from a fun novelty to a full-fledged subway map. The street maps are amazing — it’s now an entire offline street-level map of Manhattan and some parts of the other boroughs, including address ranges on each block.


It would have finally dethroned iTrans NYC as my frequently recommended subway app of choice, but it still lacks some iTrans features that I love and use frequently: train schedules, service advisories, GPS location detection, and directions.

I wish one of these apps would integrate the features of the other so I could keep my app count down. Until then, they’re both so good that I’ll gladly keep them both installed.
