With more and more people clustering to the cities, travelling via public transport becomes almost an essential part of being able to get around. There are apps out there that help, like m-Indicator for Android and Meter Down for iOS (developed by Siddharth Banerjee) and another to join that extremely useful list is Mumbai on the Go, which is currently only available for iOS. The application was developed by Mikhail Madnani and Adib Parkar, calling themselves Angry Goo Dev. They both shared 50 percent of the coding. Madnani worked on the design and layout, while Parkar did the database. The application gives you information for the four major forms of transportation in Mumbai: bus, taxi, auto and train. The application downloads all the information to your iPhone or iPod Touch, so you do not need to have a data connection to map your route.
The main layout
When you launch the application, the four transport options are clearly laid out in front of you. The taxi and auto sections are pretty straightforward with a scroll to find the meter reading with the corresponding price, as well as a space to enter the meter reading by typing it out. Both day and nights rates are given. The information tab next to the space to type out meter reading explains fare breakdowns as well as explains during which hours night fares are applicable. The interesting addition is fares for radio taxis are laid out as well. The bus section can be a little complicated to those who aren't too familiar with the bus system in Mumbai, but it's actually a lot easier to grasp than, if you were to go to a bus stand and try to get information there. Bus information is divided by bus stop, bus number and then there's a from and to feature. The colour scheme is very simple, which makes it easier for your eyes to get to the information you need.
