Nokia Transport/ Transit 2.3 Beta Available Now for Windows PhoneOctober 8, 2012 No Comments
Nokia Transit/ Transport BETA has been updated recently to add a few more features.
Glance and go with intuitive icons
Easily find the next leg of your route at a glance, thanks to simple and intuitive graphical icons for the different modes of transport (e.g. bus, train, subway). Additionally, the new POI icons in the History view (e.g. hotels, restaurants, shops) make it easy for you to identify your destination. No more slowing down to figure out where you are going or what you are looking for—you simply glance and go.
Your last stop is just a swipe away
Now a simple swipe left or right in the main screen reveals your previous destinations, then just tap to see the route options from wherever you are. So whether you want to find your way back to your hotel or to that little café you discovered yesterday, it’s as simple as a swipe.
Continuous and automatic over-the-air updates—they just happen
Now information on service changes, new routes, and newly supported cities is automatically pushed to your phone, so you always have the latest route information and schedules.
Improved station search puts finding your station a tap away
Searching just got more precise and relevant. Simply enter the name of your station and Transport prioritizes public transport stations to the top of your search results. No more scrolling to find what you’re looking for. Just type, tap, and go.
