There are infinite apps in this world all vying for the privilege of making your commuting life easier, but only a handful of these were selected by the MTA and AT&T as the winners of the city's nerdishly named App Quest. Herewith are the winners, accompanied by descriptions from the makers:
Bus NYC, which is "the most comprehensive bus app in New York City, providing users with live departure and arrival times, full timetables for selected routes, service advisories, bus route maps and trip planners among others. Many of Bus NYC’s features also function without Wi-Fi, allowing users to plan while they are underground."
When will someone invent an app that delivers a high-voltage shock to anyone who hangs brain on the subway? Get on this, lazy programmers!
