HopStop: Popular Free Service Hits Windows Phone (Transit)January 3, 2012 No Comments
The popular directions service for transit, biking, taxis, etc. has hit the Windows Phone. It has all the features you would come to expect if you have ever visited the website. Need help getting around a big city like New York? This is the perfect app and service for you.
I installed the app as soon as it hit the marketplace and it was a bit buggy. I had to un-install and re-download it again and now it is working perfectly. Hopefully that was just a one time occurrence…
