Apptastic: MetrO

Weekly Travel App Roundup

Technology is here to stay, so why not take advantage?

I never leave home without my smartphone, and now I can’t even think about going on a trip without my iPad. So, I want to make sure I’ve got everything I need to get from home to vacation with no headaches.

Each month I’ll feature some travel apps that you can use to make sure you are getting the most out of technology to help you to travel.


Ever travel to a new city and then get hit by that feeling of terror when you have to figure out the public transportation system? Welcome to my world.

For those of us who are directionally challenged it can be quite easy to get on the subway, bus or train heading on the wrong direction…just like that time I got on the Amtrak in New York City headed to Boston…until I realized half an hour in I was heading towards Washington DC. Whoops.

Enter MetrO to fix this issue.

With 400 international cities this app can help you ride the subway pretty much anywhere.

What I love about MetrO is the fact that you can pre-download the destinations that you know you will be going, so once you are there you never have to worry about a lack of wifi to get the app working. Perfect if you are stuck underground trying to figure out which train you need to take.
