Very slow to load with two splash screens. Even on htc desire the screen jerks in use. There are better tube maps.
Get a force close on my motorola defy. v1.9.78
Absolutely fantastic! A life saver for ppl like me with no sense of direction!
Better now that its opening!
Thought I could get away without using this one but no: it's pretty essential for London travel...
Force close issue fixed with up to date map and routing seems ok at first play. Hero 2.1 #fixed
Good but scrolling can be annoying. There are better tube maps on the market- Desire HD
Still no pinch-to-zoom and horribly jerky scrolling and poor response! iPhone version is still miles better, why?
Very useful, when it works
