DC Metro Now - Craig Cole Need to know where the nearest Washington, DC Metro station is? How to get there? What lines it serves and what trains are arriving and departing? Are there any Metro alerts I should know about? Let DC Metro Now be your guide. DC Metro Now offers the same real-time train arrival data and Metro alerts that the WMATA offers trackside and at their website in an iPhone-friendly format.

Each train's posted arrival and departure time is listed in order of arrival time, and the number of cars is also listed. The arrival and departure information refreshes every 60 seconds, and can be manually updated as well. Trains slide into the list as they are posted, and slide off as they depart their stations, making monitoring the real-time data intuitive and useful.

All stations are available by line color, and if you phone has location services turned on, a list of all the stations in order of distance can be brought up. Also, a scalable, scrollable Metro system map makes determining the best route to take easy. Finally, a Google Map of any station can be brought up to give you, give you the opportunity to get walking or driving directions. from your current location.

Real-time metro alerts keep you up to date on line delays or other service notices to help smooth your trip. They too update every 60 seconds, and can be manually refreshed. AND NOW FOR VERSION 2.0: Metro alerts can be pushed to your phone and notify you even when you're not using the app! Set the push alert preferences so that you only receive notifications during your workday, and only for the lines you're interested in. Whether you receive a full notification or not, icon badges indicate how many alerts you haven't seen await you. If you choose not to use push, the badges indicate how many alerts are posted.

For iPhone and iPod Touch. Network connection required for real-time train data and location services required for nearest-station information. This app will probably be most useful before you get to a Metro station, but keep in mind that these services are spotty at best inside many of the underground stations! This is improving, however, as AT&T is bringing cell service within the Metro System.
