Transport for London doesn't currently have its own app on Android, iOS or any other platform - and techradar has learnt there are no plans to create one in the future.

The lack of a TfL dedicated app has frustrated and lead to a high usage of alternative apps such as Citymapper. Transport for London has made all its information such as bus stop locations, timetables and even GPS movements open to the public since and believes developers having easy access to this data to create their own apps is the way forward rather than making a dedicated app.
Shashi Verma, director of customer experience at TfL, told techradar, "There are over apps using TfL data - Citymapper is probably the most commonly used app that uses our data. The information included in third-party apps comes directly from APIs that TfL has made itself, so each app has the same real-time data. It's all being done in real time and it updates every second. Citymapper and other transport apps don't do any further analysis of the data - it's all official information coming directly from London's transport system.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Thank you for downloading the app.
Best London apps
We regularly update the app to make it better for you. This update includes some bug fixes and performance improvements.
Got a question? Tap Support in the About section in the app. I used this app extensively on our recent trip to London. The route feature tells you exactly which lines to take and where to change lines. For a small fee it even can tell you which exit to take and whether to try to sit near the front or middle of the train the fee was well worth it in my opinion.
I did not find the adverts overly distracting.
You'll just have to stick with CityMapper
I downloaded another paid London map app that was worthless but this app is fantastic. Thank you for making my trip much, much easier!

Simply stated, unless you are very familiar with the London "tube", this app is a must have! No need to puzzle over maps, or ask guidance from an English-challenged employee.

It'll show you the lines and changes to get there! You can even put a location like "Hard Rock Cafe" in for your destination, and it will route you to the nearest station! The only catch is you must have cell service and be willing to use it. Just make sure you get a good plan on your phone! I recently went to London for the first time with my 19 year old son.
