Smart Subway is the most advanced way ever to get information about live alerts and planned work, as well as maps and service information that changes throughout the day. It also uses augmented reality technology to get you to the right subway platform, so you can get to your train without getting lost.

--Advanced accessibility reading alerts for the visually impaired with Voiceover (experimental feature to give sign directions based on reading the signs) --Maps that show only the subway service for the current time, switching automatically. --Alerts into "now," "today," "tonight," weekend," etc as well as by borough. --Subway AR is for iOS, but technology is Android-ready --Uses subway bullet and color-coded branding.

How can I try this app out? Is it build on top of another app or a designated app?

This is 1.0 software with several never-before-implemented features, so please see the release notes for known issues at The link to the app on the iTunes App Store can be found on that page.

In particular, the sign recognition accuracy can be improved, and the "See More Maps and Service" does not work at all This is fixed in the 1.0.1 update, which we have ready for the App Store and also fixes several other early bugs. It will be posted as soon as iTunes Connect comes back from its scheduled maintenance on Wednesday afternoon of a four-day work week. 1.0.1 should appear about this time next week, so if you download 1.0 please update the app then.
