Get a head start with Tube Doors!
Know which carriage to get into to be nearest the exit at your destination and which side the doors are going to open, in advance.
All stations in Zone 1, plus stations to Wembley Stadium (Wembley Park) and the Olympic Park (Stratford), are covered.
Be first in the queue for your tall, skinny, decaf latte! All this for only 50p!
Our London underground system is wonderful - but sometimes confusing! For instance, the side that you get onto the tube train isn't necessarily the side that you'll get off. In rush hour this can be a bit of a problem. If you want to be sure you'll be able to get off the tube easily at your destination, you need to position yourself near the appropriate exit in good time - and if you're in the carriage nearest to the platform exit you can be ahead of the crowds out of the station. Tube Doors gives you the information you need!
As an infrequent traveller to London, the seemingly random nature of which side to get off the tube is annoying. But when I saw a young couple with a toddler, a tiny baby, a double buggy, suitcases and a rucksack get onto the tube at Euston, settle themselves and all their stuff against the doors opposite, get out the juice for their toddler - and then discover that the doors, which they now block, opened at King's Cross and they found themselves trapped between people wanting to get on and people wanting to get off, it was obvious something needed to be done!
And so Tube Doors was born...
*NEW* Includes full DLR line and status information and live departure boards.

As an added bonus, London Tube Traveller also displays live departure board information for your London Underground and DLR stations to help you decide whether you need to rush to catch the next train or not!

London Tube Traveller is not in any way affiliated with Transport For London (TFL). It works on Android 2.1 and upwards, supports "move to SD" and the screens are optimised for both phones and tablet devices.
This app is now for sale as part of a portfolio of three apps that includes London Bus Traveller, It's My Stop and London Tube Traveller. Interested parties should contact email@example.com
Real-time Tube status and departures, quick access to station info from favourites and find stations by GPS.
Follow @tube_chaser on Twitter for latest updates.
PLEASE NOTE: Some stations are missing from the list, or no useful information is given. This is ALWAYS due to TfL's poor data, not Tube Chaser.
This mostly affects Hammersmith & City/Circle Line in West London, District line at Paddington, and some Metropolitan Line stations.
Tube map and London Overground support can't be included at this stage, due to ridiculous licensing costs from both TfL and National Rail Enquiries.

- Official licensed London tube map, modified with permission from TFL

- Combination of colour and pattern for colourblindness
- Selection of different maps for other vision impairments, with optimisations such as increased contrast, inversion, and reduced glare
- Large detailed maps that allow a high level of zoom
- Simple easy to use interface with no fiddly multi-touch gestures
- Choice of text size
This app has been designed for people with mild-moderate vision impairment, key features being alternative colour schemes, a high level of zoom, and a large font option.
Considerations have also been made for motor impairments, with large well spaced controls, and zoom buttons instead of complex multiple finger gestures.
The interface is simple, settings have visual previews, copy is clearly styled and as jargon-free as possible, and the choice of interface colours can be beneficial for irlen-related dyslexia.
Sound is not used to communicate any information, meaning no barriers are present for people with impaired hearing.
The app was designed for TFL’s ‘accessible transport app’ contest, and has been designed in accordance with the accessibility guidelines of the contest, produced by OneVoice ICT.
-- Accessibility testing --
Testing has been carried out with people with a range of vision impairments,as well as moderate to profound motor impairments. Testing has been carried out both by ourselves and through the Digital Accessibility Centre.
-- Known accessibility issues --
This app is not currently screenreader accessible. This is due to the code framework it is built upon (Corona) not supporting screenreader accessibility. Although the app is specifically for people with a moderate degree of vision, we are aware that some people with enough vision to find the app useful still do use screenreaders, so would like to support them. We are currently in discussions with Corona so if you would like to see this happen please contact us, and we can add your voice to the request.
We are also working on extra features that have arisen through our testing, such as a pinch/zoom option for people with greater motor ability, and an arrow buttons option for people with reduced motor ability.
